A Roman coin is set in this bracelet : an authentic Roman denarius of the 2nd century A.D. (silver denarius) which depicts the emperor Hadrian; in the reverse side of the coin, which we left open to be visible, the Libertas, seated left, holding a branch in her right hand and a scepter in her left.

The bracelet is handmade, and decorated with acanthus leaves, characteristic of the Roman era. Hadrian is remembered for his travels, his building projects, and his efforts to tie together the far-flung outposts of the Roman empire. He was aesthetic and educated and left behind several poems. Signs of his reign remain in a number of buildings, including the Temple of Rome and Venus, and he rebuilt the Pantheon, which had been destroyed by fire during the reign of his predecessor. His own country residence, Villa Adriana, outside Rome is considered the architectural epitome of the opulence and elegance of the Roman world. Covering seven square miles, it was more a garden city than a villa, including baths, libraries, sculpture gardens, theaters, alfresco dining halls, pavilions, and private suites, portions of which survived to modern times. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999. Hadrian’s tomb, now called the Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, became a burial place for succeeding emperors and was converted into a fortress in the 5th century.
