This ancient coin is set in an 18 karat gold ring.
Julia Mamaea was one of the most remarkable
personalities in all Roman history. Part of the so-
called "dynasty of Syrian women", she was the
effective power behind the throne of her son.
Famous for her beauty and her wit, Julia Mamaea
was at the center of an intellectual court. Her
proud imperial portrait gives us a hint of the
unique woman she was. Set in a ring of radiant
gold, it is destined to adorn the hand of an
equally remarkable individual today.
