The paper is devoted to study of earrings of the Xiongnu period (2nd century BC – 1st century AD). The collection contains a total 12 of finds, obtained during excavations of Xiongnu cemeteries in Mongolia. The main materials for making earrings were precious metals, primarily gold. Exquisite earrings with grain expressed an aesthetic tradition and at the same time a spiritual culture of Xiongnu.
