Rosette Brooches, 6th Century

Brooches like these would be used to hold tunics together, or just as decorative symbols of wealth and status. 

Each Garnet cloisonne cell has a fold sheet backing and then is covered with a garnet. The gold paper would help with the shiny garnet and make it shine more as the light passed through the garnet, reflected off the fold paper and back out the garnet.
