Authentic Ancient Roman Pendant with Carnelian Stone - Gold - 4th. Century A.D.
This is a STUNNING authentic Roman pendant made of gold.
It has been dated to the fourth century A.D. thus making it 1600 years old!
It is approximately 15 mm tall including the hoop and carries a beautiful teardrop shaped intaglio made of carnelian stone.
It is in EXCELLENT, original condition and was unearthed at a dig site in the ancient Roman province of Moesia which roughly corresponds to parts of Serbia and Bulgaria in the Balkan region, Eastern Europe, an area where the Romans often went to war to subdue the East Celts.
Holding this artifact in one's hands, one can almost feel the power, glory and might of the Roman Empire!
Everybody can go to the shopping mall and simply pick a new piece of jewelry out of enormous stocks of freshly made items but how many of you have ever given (or gotten!) a present to a near or dear one with such history embedded into it, such character, the patina of 1600 years battling the elements and so unique that there is truly only ONE of it in the world?
Imagine that 1600 years ago, a Roman citizen had this commissioned and gave it to his beloved wife...
Wouldn't it be great if some 1600 years later, this process would be repeated?
We qualify this pendant as original, unrestored in near mint condition and perfectly wearable.
This is NOT a copy of any kind. This is an authentic 1600 year old pendant!
Only 1 available of course.
