Description

Hagia Sophia Pendant with 10th Century Byzantine Gold Coin-Border Metal: Yellow Gold Metal: 14kt Yellow Gold Swivel Mounting Stones: Lapis lazuli Measures: 1 3/4" Tall x 1 1/2" WideWhen we came across this magnificent example of a gold Byzantine histamenon, we knew we had to make a special piece to showcase it. Our jewelry designer Maritza Miranda, an architect by training, drew inspiration from the famous Hagia Sophia temple in Istanbul, Turkey. The Hagia Sophia is considered the pinnacle of Byzantine architecture. The temple's signature dome is reflected in the bail of this unique pendant. The dome and swivel mounting and accented by Lapis lazuli, a stone prized since antiquity for its intense blue color.
