This beautiful design came from a coin minted in India during the British Colonial period. The coin was used around the turn of the century. Back in those years Great Britain was using some beautiful, shapes for their Colonial coins and this was no exception. The coin was called a One Anna and was minted in a very unique shape that makes this pendant beautiful when being worn. Its one of my favorite pieces from that era. After being hand cut the pendant is plated in 14 karat gold and rhodium to accent certain areas make them stand out. The pendant comes with a 14 karat gold plated snake chain that makes the piece. The chain is available in four different lengths for you to choose from.
