The above set is called a Penannular, a type of ancient Roman and Celtic clothing fastener. They were widely used in Britain around 200 AD and is thought to be the origin of later style medieval brooches and pins, such as closed ring and heart shaped brooches.
Based on the ancient style, this penannular can be used as a decorative fastener for shawls, scarves, capes and a coat embellishment.
