Description
This genuine anient coin from the golden era of the Byzantine Empire has been mounted in a lovely Byzantine Revival necklace of high karat gold modeled the antique style.

The intricate gold work shown here was a hallmark of the court jewelers of Constantinople. It was common practice as well to incorporate precious coins into jewelry as symbols of political affiliation. This necklace, dramatic yet subtle, is completely at ease with those Byzantine traditions. It would have caused a sensation in the palaces of Constantinople, and it will produce a similar reaction whenever it is worn today.
