The Italian firm Dubini specializes in using ancient coins in their jewellery.
Here, a gold ring with an Alexander the Great silver coin. They note, “Depicted on the coin: Obverse-Head of Herakles right wearing lion-skin headdress. History: Herakles was the greatest hero of the Greeks. Born of the Greek god Zeus and made mortal, he attained divine status by accomplishing 12 great tasks on Earth know as the 12 labours of Herakles. The idea of a man becoming a god obviously was an attractive image for Alexander. The headdress that appears on the head of Herakles is the lion skin of the fierce Nemean lion that he killed during his first labour.”
This is priced at £850.
