The practice of setting coins as jewels, known as ‘Gemme Numari’ - coin gems or nummary gems - traces back to Ancient Rome. As people journeyed the world, the coins acquired from their travels made for wonderful souvenirs that could then be engraved and set to be worn as necklaces and rings. This ancient tradition of coin jewelry that has an interesting look, showcases cultural heritage and makes for great pieces of conversation appealed to global taste thousands of years later. Coin jewelry is said to bring luck and good fortune to the wearer.
