Byzantine Empire 379 AD
These small, ancient, bronze coins are set in 18k yellow gold and balanced by 4 white diamonds, 0.32ctw. The unusual shape of the coins makes for an interesting and unique pair of earrings.
The coins depict the profile of the emperor, Theodosius and a primitive cross in a wreath. Both have been struck off center, which we love because it makes us wonder about the person who struck the bronze that day…almost 2000 years ago.
