Just think about Roman coins made into beautiful 18k jewelry! The coins were lost and buried for more than 2,000 years. First minted in 211 BC, the Denarius is a small silver coin used in Roman currency. These coins were individually struck by hand, hammered into exacting weights. Each one is irregularly shaped, never perfectly round, making each unique. How about a coin this old to make one feel ever so young?
The Florin coin is 24k and was used for a long period of time and probably the first European coin to be made in large quantities. These coins have approximately 3.5 grams of gold and from about 1252. The pendants made from these coins lend themselves to a long gold chain, and certainly would be a subject of much attention! I am enthralled with these coins, which come with a certificate of authenticity, of course. To own a piece of history like this, and to be able to wear it, seems to me a beautiful thing! And yes, I feel so young in comparison!!!
