The imperial image of the last of the Severan dynasty is surrounded by gleaming gold and a splendid sapphire in a necklace of understated drama. Just as the hand of man has shaped the gem to sparkling perfection, so the hand of time has patinated the coin to a rich, dark green. When we look upon this stunning jewel, completely at home in the contemporary world, we are also aware of the passage of centuries since Rome ruled the world. The beauty of this necklace is timeless, ageless, the very definition of a classic.
