Byzantine Theodosius II with Diamonds
This is a beautiful one of a kind handcrafted pendant inspired by Byzantine coinage. It is modeled after a real coin minted in Constantinople in the 5th century AD in honor Emperor Theodosius II. Emperor from 408 to 450, Theodosius II was a gentle, scholarly, easily dominated man who allowed his government to be run by a succession of relatives and ministers. On the front of the pendant is the draped and cuirassed bust head of Emperor Theodosius II with a pearl diademed. The backside of the pendant has a depiction of the nimbate emperor holding a globe in his left hand with his right arm raised. The bail is made with solid 24k yellow gold as is the frame on the bottom. The frame contains tiny diamonds.
There is also the option of choosing a chain with a diamond clasp. That chain is made out of sterling silver and is two tone gold plated. The clasp of the chain is made with silver and decorated with tiny diamonds and is two sided.
