Description
These genuine Ancient Roman coins have been mounted in a pair of modern 18 karat gold cufflinks set with 48 radiant fully-cut diamonds weighing a total of 1.97 carats.

Marcus Cocceius Nerva was born about 30 A.D. of an important senatorial family. The future emperor was a distinguished lawyer who held major political posts under Nero and the Flavians. His part in the successful assassination plot against the emperor Domitian in 96 A.D. is uncertain, but he was elevated to the imperial throne on the very same day. Though strongly supported by the senate, Nerva was forced to deal with the army and the Praetorian Guard, both angry over the death of Domitian. Two of his political allies were killed by the praetorians for their part in the plot while Nerva was forced to stand by helplessly. Childless, Nerva chose as his successor the greatest military leader of the day, Trajan. This proved to be an excellent decision and set the precedent for the eighty years of good rule that followed; each of the next four emperors, without living heirs, chose the most worthy man to succeed him. Nerva died in January 98 A.D., after a very short reign which had set the roman empire back on the path of good government. These stunning silver coins from the time of Nerva are framed by lustrous gold and radiant diamonds, creating extraordinary cufflinks that will surely make the wearer feel every bit as regal as a roman emperor.
