An authentic silver denarius from the 2nd century AD depicting the emperor Hadrian has been set in this solid sterling silver bracelet. On the reverse side of the coin we can see Goddess Rome sitting on a throne. The bracelet was made entirely by hand by our goldsmiths and, like all our jewels, it comes with a certificate of authenticity which certifies the authenticity of the coin . Hadrian is remembered for his travels, his building projects, and his efforts to tie together the far-flung outposts of the Roman empire. He was a well-educated aesthete who left behind several poems. Signs of his reign remain in a number of buildings, including the Temple of Rome and Venus, and he rebuilt the Pantheon, which had been destroyed by a fire during the reign of his predecessor. His own country residence, Villa Adriana, outside Rome, is considered the architectural epitome of the opulence and elegance of the Roman world. Covering seven square miles, it was more of a garden city than a villa, including baths, libraries, sculpture gardens, theaters, alfresco dining halls, pavilions, and private suites, portions of which survived to modern times. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999. Hadrian's tomb, now called the Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, became a burial place for succeeding emperors and was converted into a fortress in the 5th century.
