This pendant is inspired by the jewellery designs found in ancient Rome. Ornate jewellery was rare due to the lack of gold but as the Empire expanded it trade routes and armies conquered other nations precious metals and stones became readily available.
Roman jewellery was generally made of gold or silver and was created with Greek and Etruscan influences.
This Roman Medusa pendant is made from lead-free pewter and is supplied on a gold plated chain. The fold-over information card is full colour and has historical information on the reverse.
