The burial dress of Chernyakhov — Sântana de Mureș Culture is represented by the following categories of finds: fibulae, belt details, beads, pendants, rings, temple rings, bracelets, earrings, torcs. The latter five categories of finds are not numerous and do not form series. Their inclusion in Chernyakhov costume is supposed to be a manifestation of foreign cultural traditions and rules. The aim of this work is to find analogies to Chernyakhov’s finds of rare categories, to determine their origin and to interpret the reason why they are found in the Chernyakhov area. The study allowed to conclude that, in fact, it is impossible to establish the one reason why those rare categories of dress accessories could be found in the Chernyakhov culture area. Some of them are trophies of Scythian wars, some are items popular with the Late Scythian, Sarmatian population of Northern Black Sea region, and most of them are jewelry articles popular over a wide territory.

Keywords: Northern Black Sea region, Carpathian-Danube region, Late Roman time, Chernyakhov — Sîntana de Mureş Culture, costume, dress accessories
