Seriously chic and substantial at 112 grams (almost 1/4 pound!), kudos go out to the designers of this mighty bracelet.
Utilizing four actual antique silver coins, dated 1849, 1869, 1870, and another 185?, they are linked together by sleek open ovals.
Two coins hail from France, and two from Belgium. A power statement no stacking required.
Two are Leopold II Roi, one of 1869 and the other 1870. The front reads, Leopold II Roi, Des Belges and Leop Wiener, the engraver’s name. The reverse shows the mark of 5 F (for 5 Francs) and the royal coat of arms with a lion rampant, a crown and lotus flowers and the motto, “L'union Fait la Force”.
Two are stamped, Rebublique Francais, one from 1849, and one for185?, with the image of Ceres, the goddess, and the mark E.A Oudine F. who was a sculptor and the engraver for this coin. The reverse stamped 5 Francs, “Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite” and a garland.
