IN 14K YELLOW GOLD

serene depiction of Diana, this coin from the Roman Republic represents the "golden years" of Roman art style
and splendor. Her long flowing hair is shown being worn raised in
formal poise. The reverse side (not shown) shows a quadriga four

with the simple high polished 14 karat yellow gold setting and makes for a very classy as well as
highly unique piece of jewelry.

(Diana's servant and assistant midwife), and Virbius, the woodland god.
