Kings of Persis Shield Ring
Authentic Persepolis coins minted circa 1st century B.C. set in 18K yellow gold with ruby cabochons.
Handmade in Rome.
Home to the Persians, the principality of Persis emerged in the 8th century B.C. as a satrapy of Elam. It was located in southeastern Iran fronting on the Persian Gulf. The kings of Persis retained a degree of autonomy under the Parthians, due primarily to their role as the guardians of Zoroastrianism. The last king of Persis, Ardeshir V, fomented a successful revolt against the Parthians and became the first Sasanian king.
Coins of Persis were made for local use only, and were struck in small numbers. They have always been scarce and rare, and still are.

Each ancient coin and artefact we place into jewellery has been restored and professionally stabilised to preserve it for lifetimes of enjoyment. Patina, the natural toning and oxidation that occurs on silver, bronze and copper coins, is not dirt – it is a layer of what becomes protection for the coin formed over hundreds of years and is a valuable part of the coin’s unique history. Conservation efforts stabilise and preserve these precious patinas whenever possible. Please don’t try to “improve” your ancient coin, it has already been perfected by numismatic specialists.
Silver naturally tones over time to a soft to deepening grey, with brighter highlights on the raised surfaces of the design. This toning is highly coveted as it adds a touch of age and beauty to the coin’s details that only time can. DO NOT, under any circumstances, attempt to strip this patina. You may clean your coin bezel (the metal frame around your coin) only with a soft, non-abrasive polishing cloth. To remove skin oils and smudges from your silver treasure coin jewellery, use warm water mixed with non-citrus, plain dish soap and a soft-bristle tooth brush. Rinse it in clean water and use a soft, cotton towel to gently and completely dry.
