Hey TPFers,

I was wondering if any of you have/love ancient coin jewelry pieces? I love the BVLGARI Monete Antiche collection which features ancient Greek silver coins set in gold. I have one pendant (not from Bvlgari), featuring a 4th century BCE Greek coin depicting Herakles in lion clad. The coin is set in a custom bezel that my jeweler made for me.

Here are some pics (please excuse the blurriness, I am still not sure how to use my camera properly:P):





Here is the back with a seated Zeus holding an eagle:

Here you can see the beautiful detailing on the bezel (my jeweler did a really great job):



I would really love to see some pics of other ancient coin jewelry if you guys have any, please post ! :smile:

Please repost pictures of your antique coin jewelry. I am planning to have an antique silver coin made into a necklace and would appreciate input/opinions and experience.
