The Augustus Pendant is an ancient coin, wreathed with golden spheres, and bearing the face of an ancient ruler. Augustus was the first Emperor of Rome, whose name means majestic and venerable. As Emperor Augustus he presided over the beginning of what was to become almost two centuries of relative peace, otherwise known as Pax Romana. Handcrafted and individually cast. Each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty. Nickel and lead free.
