Antique Ferdin VII 8 Reale Coin on Sterling Chain
Assembled with vintage materials gathered from the flea markets and private sources of South America, this distinctive necklace was created under the supervision of master jeweler, Joseph Holland. Mr. Holland has been making jewelry for over 40 years, and many pieces are owned by museums, collectors, and celebrities alike.

Although Mr. Holland has retired to Peru, he still has the need to create, which is why we have introduced his "Lima Collection". These pieces are exclusively for sale at Lush Life Antiques with other pieces available for viewing at www.pinterest.com/josephholland.

This interesting sterling coin necklace will surely get a lot of attention when worn. It has a heavy 17" silver chain with toggle style closure, and a 1 1/2" diameter 1816 Fernando VII Spanish coin hangs at front. These eight "reale" coins were minted in Peru for the Spanish government and are often the "booty" in excavated shipwrecks. The indigenous people of Peru often pierced these coins and wore them, explaining how these were sourced in Peru by Mr Holland.It is hallmarked "925" on the clasp and it weighs 48 grams. It has a great patina and will definitely attract attention when worn.
