Gorgeous and detailed gold necklace perfect for any occasion. Cast from original sides of ancient coins, the Roma Necklace was designed to attract wealth, fortune, and opportunity. Coins have a long history of bringing good luck and have become a symbol of prosperity and wealth. Throwing coins into a wishing well is a tradition that predates recorded history. A silver coin was used under the mast of a ship as it was built, to ensure smooth sailing. Coins have even been placed on the eyes of the dead to ensure safe passage into the afterlife. By carrying this ancient treasure, the Roma can bring enhanced grace, luck, and success.
Romulus and Remus are represented on a number of Roman coins, this pendant is made from one of the most common of these, issued during what is known as the Constantine commemorative period, ca. 330-346 AD.
