This delicate natural Zambian emerald necklace features a genuine Ancient Greek Cherronesos Lion coin from 386-338 B.C. set with a solid 14k yellow gold setting.

LIONS - This coin is from the Greek colony of Thracian Cherronesos, and these coins were used to facilitate trade throughout the Black Sea. The earliest coins we have from the Greeks all featured animals, and mostly lions; but this coin type was one of earliest to have a design on the back as well.

EMERALDS are one of the four precious gemstones; and have been documented as being used as far back as approximately 4000 B.C. in Babylon. They were worshipped by the Inca, and used often throughout the Ancient Empires by prominent figures like Alexander the Great, Aristotle, and the moguls of India.
