Roman Coin Cuff Bracelet: As a collector of ancient coins, I take my inspiration from these artifacts of the distant past. This cuff is made from pure silver impressions of an ancient Roman coin, joined in an alternating series of fronts and backs of the coin in rows to create this cuff bracelet. Some coins are blackened, some are vermeil 24k gold overlay, and some remain silver.
This particular coin was found in what are called "dirt clump" coins. They arrive straight from the ground, full of mud and hardened encrustations. With gentle, careful cleaning I was able to actually see a beautifully preserved image of a Roman Emperor. Through my research I identified it as Constantine the Great. Constantine the Great was emperor of the Roman world from 306 to 337 B.C. He moved the capital of the Empire from Rome to the ancient Greek city of Byzantium and renamed it Constantinople. Constantine also began to shift the religion from paganism to Christianity. Some consider him to be the first Christian emperor.

Adjustable to fit wrist with a gentle squeeze.
Please note the coin is my own sand cast replica of the original coin.
