Authentic Greek Silver Coin Pendant depicting Medusa

  • • Handmade 100% Made in Italy • Authentic Greek Silver Coin 4th cent. AD • Band material: Sterling Silver 925

This silver pendant was designed by me and handmade by the craftsmen of my shop, SERRA, opened in Rome in 1910 and located in via Margutta 57, in the historic center of the city, very close to the Spanish Steps! The pendant has an authentic greek silver coin ( 4th century AD) depicting a Gorgon. Gorgons were a popular image in Greek mythology, appearing in the earliest of written records of Ancient Greek religious beliefs such as those of Homer. Their legendary and powerful gaze could turn one to stone, so images of the Gorgons were put upon objects and buildings for protection. All our jewels are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity which certifies their origin from the Greek or Roman world!
