Q: Just how alluring can a 2,000-year-old coin look? Bulgari asked and answered this question with their Monete collection, which debuted in the 1960s and continues to this day. A: When combined with a bold, contemporary setting, the women of Rome and the world will find it most alluring.
This iconic Bulgari Monete Ancient Coin Vintage Collar Necklace features five antique Roman coins bezel-set in 18K yellow gold. The style of this stately collar neckclace is worthy of a Roman emperor, with each coin setting soldered to four links of curb chain. The weight of the necklace merits noting at just over five ounces (145.27 grams). Wearing this piece, once can feel the weight of history. Which is rather exhilarating when you think about it. Each coin of the collection is treasured in the idiom of rare and precious gems. It is such a novel recontextualization, that Bulgari incorporates moments of Rome’s Imperial glory into these one-of-a-kind designs, and once again triumphantly captures the timeless sophistication of the Eternal City.
The term “ancient” when it comes to coins is defined using Rome as the marker. Ancient defined as anything before the fall of Rome (traditional date 476 BCE), and Medieval and Modern for later time periods. The Roman Empire was one of the greatest and most influential civilizations in the world forover 1000 years, with roughly eighty-seven different emperors during its imperial period, from Augustus in 31 BCE to Zeno in 474 CE. (Talk about A to Z!) The coins in this museum-quality collar necklace have an impressive dark brown patina from considerable age. Their irregular shapes are highlighted rather than corrected with the gold bezel, truly making each coin a unique piece of art-meets-weighty-history.
