Excerpt from "Claudian," a Few Notes on the Architecture and Costume: A Letter to Wilson Barrett, Esq.

The extravagance in jewellery was so great that 4 worth was absolutely worn at one time by one woman, and one pair of emerald earrings was worth the revenue of a large estate. The stones most in favour were the diamond, emerald, jasper, and sardonyx; among common folk the cornelian was greatly used. Rings were worn so thickly that six on each finger would not be unusual, and even the slaves and poor people wore rings of iron, bronze, silver, and sometimes gold.
