The stars have fascinated us ever since ancient times. When the ancient Greeks and Romans first looked to the skies, they saw the constellations glittering brightly and wrote down the very first zodiac.
Chupi has been in love with star signs ever since she was little, when she was given a 2000 year old ancient greek coin with a depiction of her star sign, Aquarius, on it by her godfather. This collection is inspired by those ancient coins.
Cast in 14k solid white gold from ancient coins from the Greeks and Romans, the coins are over 2000 years old and as beautiful today as they were when they were first made in Athens and Rome. Each coin has a unique history, a heritage that carries through to today.
Constellations are a mixture of science and mythology, wear your star sign as the perfect talisman.
Each star sign necklace is cast from an original Greek or Roman coin, read the story of your star sign below.
Cast from an ancient Greek Coin in our darling Dublin using the time honoured method of lost wax casting to capture and preserve the tiniest details. These coins were in circulation for hundreds of years, they show beautiful wear and fading. The craftsmanship the coins were made with shines through now nearly two thousand years from when they were first minted.
The front shows a crab for Cancer with a crown above, with three pellets showing the value of the coin above. On the reverse is an eagle with its wings spread, holding a hare in its talons. Struck circa 425-410 B.C. in the Greek city of Akragas in Sicily.
