Origin: Israel (Bethlehem, Samaria)

Additional Information: These magnificent coins are set in 18 karat gold pendants and strung in a necklace with genuine ruby beads and with a 14 karat gold clasp.
In the Ancient World, the rich, ruby-colored dye produced in the city of Tyre was reserved only for the adornment of royalty. The emperors of Rome wore boots of that shade to set them apart, while the rulers of Byzantium were said to be “Born to the Purple”. Here, history and tradition are beautifully evoked in a necklace that links precious coins of five illustrious emperors with beads of lush, radiant ruby to create a jewel fit for the neck of an empress. - (FJ.2144)
