Inspiration is elusive. But sometimes all it takes is a night at the movies. After watching the world’s most beautiful couple get chased in Venice, I got an idea. It was right on the screen. Bigger than life on the wrist of a Hollywood goddess.
In the film, she explains that her beloved, two-faced Roman coin bracelet represents the idea that “People have two sides and we must embrace both in someone we love.” The film was easy to forget. The coin was anything but.
Deciding to create our own jewelry inspired by this historic coin was simple. Locating it was a different story. Six months of searching brought us a single coin worthy of a starring role, a silver didrachm minted in Rome sometime between 225-212 B.C. We found an Italian artisan to mold and cast a sculpted pendant inspired from the rare original. World’s most beautiful movie star not included.
