How Cross Came to Make the Goddess Bracelet

Working with private collectors of antiquities over a 10-year period, we sought to acquire some of the most beautiful goddess coins of ancient Greece. We focused on a 150-year time frame from 400BC – 250BC within the classical period of Greece. This century and a half was the time in history in which the most beautiful coins ever minted came into circulation. Once our collection was assembled we used the originals as masters, re-oriented front with back to allow coins to hang properly with erect images. The coins were also reduced slightly to eliminate unnecessary weight and to allow for a pleasing visual progression. Only the most beautiful depictions of the goddesses were chosen. Special consideration was given to centering the coin’s imagery and selecting coins free from wear. Also important in our selection was to find coins with a reverse of rich imagery and symbolic importance to each goddess. All reproductions in this collection are clearly stamped “copy”.
