Something about being able to hold history in your hand is just so amazing.
The idea that this object has gone through the centuries... passed through hand after hand... provided bread for many families- it never ceases to amaze me.

This amazing ancient Byzantine coin is beautiful and elegant, with exceptional detail and clarity.

And it is large!!
it measures 38.5 mm across- and it is very thick and heavy.

How that was practical as a coin, is beyond me

This coin is from the reign of MAURITIUS TIBERIUS, 582-602


The "front" shows a large M which meant "40" and a cross above and to the right side are the Roman numerals that showed the year of the kings reign.
The other side shows the man himself, and the detail is very clear. The artwork of the byzantine period has a very childlike quality about it.


I have given it a triple frame- the first is a fine silver bezel- next is a row of hammered silver dots, and the outside is a hammered fine silver frame.
It is 49mm across with the frame.

It hangs from a bale made of sterling and underneath this is a gorgeous clear blue tourmaline, weighing 5.6 carats.
It hangs from an rectangular sterling link chain, for a very nice and substantial look.


length can be determined at order, it is now 18 inches



An amazing piece of history!

We have had a rough time after losing our English Mastiff, Magnus, before Christmas. I was looking at your jewelry, as I always do, and I told my husband this necklace reminded me of Magnus. I checked the listing this past weekend with my sister and it had sold. I broke down and cried. I had no clue it was my husband who bought it. I know I’ve told you that your jewelry brings joy, Mara. But it can also bring peace, strength and a powerful reminder of wonderful memories of loved ones. This pendant symbolizes our Magnus. He is our 3rd dog represented by the 3 golden suns. 6 pointed star, his age. The large M. The coloring of the coin reminds us of his brindle coat. The size is large and powerful, just like he will always be in our hearts. Thank you for my keepsake, Mara. It truly is beyond beautiful. All my best, Aaryn

Another beautiful ancient coin pendant w necklace from Marajoyce for my collection. Perfect setting with bright gemstones echoing the ancient qualities of the coin it encases. Mara is wonderful to work with and it's well worth springing for the expedited shipping - received it in NYC within two days of shipment. A great shop!

Oh my gosh, what a beautiful pendant! The detail on this ancient coin is really incredible, and Mara's setting really shows it off, without being too fussy or refined. I haven't taken it off since it arrived! I also definitely recommend getting the DHL shipping upgrade. It's a secure feeling to track the piece all the way to your door.
