Description
Mounted in beautiful 18 karat gold pendant set with 42 radiant, fully cut diamonds weighing a total of 0.33 carat, 5 gorgeous baguette rubies weighing a total of 0.28 carat and 1 lovely pear- shaped ruby weighing 0.46 carat.

M. Antonius Gordianus, grandson of the ill-fated Gordian I and nephew of Gordian II, was born about 255 A.D. After his grandfather and uncle perished in their revolt against the emperor Maximinus in 238 A.D., Gordian III was given the title of Caesar by Balbinus and Pupienus, the two co-emperors set up by the senate in opposition to Maximinus. When these two were also murdered, Gordian III was proclaimed Augustus by the praetorian guard. In 244 A.D. Gordian went to personally direct the campaign in the Persian east, where he met with great initial success. However, due to the treachery of the praetorian prefect, Julius Phillipus, the loyalty of the army was undermined and Gordian III was deposed and killed in Mesopotamia.
