That which is truly beautiful remains so across all barriers of time and culture. At the height of the Roman Empire, skilled goldsmiths created ornate frames for imperial coinage which were then worn by the aristocracy as signs of political affiliation. In the 19th century, equally talented jewelers reproduced these Roman originals for a discerning audience. The classical revival style made use of ancient techniques and materials to create ornaments virtually indistinguishable from the genuine thing. This superb pendant has at its heart a copy after a coin of Septimius Severus, one of Rome’s greatest emperors. Bold and delicate by turns, it is the ideal adornment for those who appreciate timeless quality. - (FJ.4544)
