|A time of change In the early days of the Republic, the Ancient Romans introduced precious metal coins as currency, even though they didn’t really need them. Why? Because the ever-image conscious Romans saw that the Ancient Greeks and Egyptians using currency, and knew that adopting something similar would imbue their civilization with a certain air of culture. We’ve created the Stauer Aurora Collection, named for the Roman goddess of dawn and new beginnings, to capture the spirit of making changes to alter your own destiny. The necklace features an expertly recreated early Roman coin, set in a gold-finished design true to that momentous era, while the bracelet features four coins linked together in a display of power.
