The imperial image of the last of the Severan
dynasty is surrounded by gleaming gold and a
splendid sapphire in a necklace of understated
drama. Just as the hand of man has shaped the
gem to sparkling perfection, so the hand of time
has patinated the coin to a rich, dark green.
When we look upon this stunning jewel,
completely at home in the contemporary world,
we are also aware of the passage of centuries
since Rome ruled the world. The beauty of this
necklace is timeless, ageless, the very definition
of a classic.
