Ancient Byzantine
Gold Histamenon Coin Jewelry

Byzantine coin design reflected the Empires close ties to Christianity.  Portrayals of the cross and of the saints are common, but no figure appears as regularly as Christ himself.  One representation of Christ is that of the bold full bust of Christ found on the gold histamenon nomisma coinage.  These coins, when mounted in 14k gold bezels, make exceptionally beautiful and historically significant pieces of religious jewelry.

The Byzantine Empire, centered in Constantinople (modern day Istanbul), is generally accepted as beginning in 491 AD with the reign of Anastasius I, and ending in 1453 AD with the toppling of Constantinople by the Ottoman Turks.
