of my ancient coin jewelry incorporates ONLY
coins that have been carefully selected for use in our designs. To a
collector, the criteria would be as demanding as ours: nice strike,
pleasing detail and beautiful patina. As each coin was struck thousands of
years ago using crude methods, none will be perfectly round and slight
adjustments to the coin are typical but not defacing. Unfortunately, these photos hardly
do these pieces justice. The rich combination of the gold and silver
enveloping the varieties of patinated bronze is incredible!
coinage was hand struck from varying hand engraved dies, no two coins are
exactly alike. Each coin itself is a unique example of ancient art and
makes for a true one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry that you can count on no one
else will have.
We carefully and personally hand
select all ancient coins used in our designs. I can assure you that each one is as unique and rare
(if not much more!) than any
gemstone. Even if you had 10 coins that were struck two thousand years ago from the same die, each one would still be different being colored with a variety of
patinas from the ages of time as it lay in the earth.

Some of the pieces are
classified as MASTERPIECE COLLECTION.
I completely hand-fabricate these works of
art and sign the back with my hallmark, the crossed 'M'. They are what I
consider the 'crème de la crème" of my ancient coin works. While I
personally create the majority of the other settings shown here, those in my
Masterpiece Collection are given great attention to design and detail and
involve much more work, thereby explaining the higher price.
If you would like a certain mounting that has already sold, please inquire as it
is possible to recreate that same mounting for another coin.
Ancient coin jewelry is probably one
