This ancient coin is set in an exquisite 21 karat gold pendant created in the antique style.

With a strong and visionary personality, Constantine defined the age in which he lived. Court historians record how, dressed in rich robes and glittering jewels, he dazzled his contemporaries. Surely then Constantine would have approved of this dramatic jewel, which sets his imperial portrait in a frame of gold worked in the exact manner of ancient jewelry. The brilliant patterns of the gold provide radiant contrast to the aged surface of the bronze. Like Constantine, the person who wears this pendant is certain to make an enduring impression.
