A distinctive pendant from the A. Leondarakis collection with a unique design.
The pendant is a copy of a B.C. 400 silver Greek coin from the island of Aegina. On the front it features a land-tortoise with letters A and I and on the reverse the letters N and I and a dolphin in a 5 part split square. The “turtles” (chelones) of Aegina, along with the “owls” (glaukes) of Athens and the “asses” (poloi) of Corinth, were the international currencies of the antiquity.
The coin is made from solid 925 sterling silver and is engulfed by solid 14K yellow gold. On its back it carries the metal fineness stamps.
It will be sent to you with a natural leather string in a presentation box for you to keep or present as a gift.
Established in 1920, A. Leondarakis is a family run business with a long history committed in the production of quality, unconventional gold and silver jewelry with a recognizable identity.
The A. Leondarakis name ensures that this artifact was made with quality in mind and will be a possession to enjoy.
