αρχαίος • (archaíos) ancient, antiquated, antique
As namesake to the collection, the Archaíos Coin Necklace is our interpretation of an ancient Greek coin. The earliest known coins are currently dated to the last quarter of the 7th century BC and often boasted gods and figures from Greek mythology as well as local plants and flowers. Each coin was hand-crafted by local artisans, making these artifacts especially interesting and unique.
Ours is a simple version intended for everyday wear. And hey, you may even be able to buy something at the market with it, although we doubt you'll want to...
