Roman Bronze Coin Pendant

We've taken an old Roman Bronze coin of ours to Indonesia, to be set in Sterling Silver as a pendant, for easy wear.

This deeply patinated old coin was found in what is now Yugoslavia, and dates back to Imperial Rome in the 1st to 4th centuries CE.

The Emperor's head is quite visible but is very dark and intact with no scratches or polished details, perfect if you want an intact well aged surface.  (a personal favourite "unmarked" by modern times!)

Set into a handmade Sterling Silver rim with a hinged (5 mm) suspension ring, that would comfortably accommodate a cord, choker or chain.

We've deliberately left the back open so you can see the reverse of the coin, here a figure stands with hands outstretched surrounded by a ring of text.

I'd be very careful polishing the silver with a dry Silver Polishing Cloth, avoiding polishing the bronze. If you do polish or scratch the patina off the bronze you will only reveal shiny fresh bronze that hasn't been exposed to air, which would be rather sad. It currently has a nice balance of tone.

Age: Contemporary silver, using a coin from around the 1st to 4th centuries CE.

Size: H 32 mm, including hinged loop, x W 17 mm
