Ancient Greek Coin in 14K Gold Victorian Setting


An Ancient Greek coin is bezel set into a 14k gold Victorian ring, making this a historical piece that captures the beauty of two eras. The Greek coin shows the silhouette of a helmeted warrior. The patina and wear to the coin is indicative that this is an original Greek artifact. There is pitting on the coin that creates a great visual texture, and a beautiful patina that adds an air of mystery. The ring setting is open, so the back of the coin can be seen from the bottom of the ring, revealing a horse in motion, partially obscured by the ring’s mount. 

The overall shape of the ring mirrors the imperfect circle of the coin. The ring’s 14k gold setting is from the Victorian era. It has elements of Etruscan Revival jewelry, including granulated balls and a fluted band. 

A ring size 4.5, this makes a great pinky ring. The ring weighs 5.75 grams. The top of the ring is 5/8” x 11x16”.
