Description
Mounted in an exquisite 18 karat gold pendant set with 44 radiant, fully-cut diamonds weighing a total of 0.67 carat and 1 cabochon ruby weighing 1.16 carats.

Titus Aurelius Fulvus Boionius Arrius Antoninus was born at Lanuvium in 86 A.D. He adopted a senatorial career and was consul in 120, later distinguishing himself as proconsul in Asia. He was adopted by Hadrian as his heir on February 25,138, and during the emperor's last months, Antoninus was virtually ruler, and his succession on July 10, was smooth. The history of his reign is almost a blank in the records, owing to the tranquility and prosperity which the roman world enjoyed under his patient, judicious and impartial rule. He died at Lorium on March 7th, 161, and was succeeded by Marcus Aurelius who had been selected by Hadrian as the eventual heir to the throne. To wear this extraordinary gold pendant is to carry on the legacy of the golden age of Rome--the pendant's radiant beauty a reminder of the radiance of an ancient time.
