A Pair of Bronze Late Roman Coins, Mounted in 18k Gold Earrings with a Ruby on Each Earring
These beautiful earrings were set in custom hewn 18k gold, finely braided around the edges and linked to clasp, each topped by an exquisite ruby of deep purple. These bronze coins contain the profiles of various officials, probably local rulers from the increasingly fractured Roman empire of 300 AD-400 AD.
Even with a crumbling empire, the Roman’s maintained their currency, imprinting thousands of coins annually as a sign of their rigorous devotion to the rites of civilization. These coins are in excellent condition, having been wonderfully restored and updated for modern admirers of ancient history.
