This silver pendant was designed by me and handmade by the craftsmen of my shop, SERRA, opened in Rome in 1910 and located in via Margutta 57 , in the historic center of the city, very close to the Spanish Steps!

The pendant has an authentic greek silver coin ( 4th century A.D.) depicting a Gorgon.
Gorgons were a popular image in Greek mythology, appearing in the earliest of written records of Ancient Greek religious beliefs such as those of Homer. Their legendary and powerful gaze could turn one to stone, so images of the Gorgons were put upon objects and buildings for protection.
