A small gold sphere decorated with a single band of gold wire around the circumference. This has a line of arches of gold wire on both sides extending approximately halfway up each hemisphere. Above these arches are multiple small pellets covering the top and bottom of the sphere. At the top is a small loop formed from gold wire with a piece of bent gold wire through it, possibly the start of a chain or larger loop to enable the object to be attached to a chain. Bears some resemblance to Tudor dress pins but the fitting/ attachment loop suggests it might be a decorative dress accessory.
