Roman Bronze Coin Bracelet

Sorry, this bracelet is no longer available. However, we may still have another with a different coin. (try RC128)

This medium, round, dark bronze Imperial Roman coin was found in Eastern Europe, then taken to Indonesia where we have had it handset into a flexible, plain chain Sterling Silver Bracelet for us.

This coin dates from somewhere in the 1st to the 4th Century. I'm not sure which Emperor this is but when I have more time I'll update this entry, (but the half the fun of ownership is the hunt for background info.)

It's set into simple sterling with no decoration. This is hinged between two silver linked ropes, locked with a fob and two rings, allowing you a choice of lengths.

We've deliberately left an opening in the back to partially reveal the reverse of the coin, however you may struggle to interpret it in the photo.(In reality it's well defined with a small child flanked by two standing adults.)

The coin's surface has a pitted dark dull patina, the raised bust being lightly polished to a contrasting coppery detail, especially bringing up the encircling writing. (It will darken and tone down with exposure to air.)

An occasional careful polish with a dry "Silver Polishing Cloth" will bring up the shine on the silver, when it needs it.

But be careful not to scratch or drastically polish the coin as you would only be removing the patina of age. I'd just rub my thumb over it in wear.

The bracelet will fit a medium wrist of 182 mm or 170 mm depending which ring you use to do it up.

You may also find Roman Coin Earrings, Pendants and Rings listed in our Modern section as the coin is ancient even though the silver work is contemporary.

Age: Coin circa 1st - 4th Century AD, Silver Contemporary handmade for us in Indonesia.

Size: Coin W 19 mm x H 19 mm. Overall length 182 mm or 170 mm, your choice. 

Weight: 23 grams
