This piece is made in tribute to the fierce but nurturing love that is motherhood.
The medallion bears a striking of the Roman goddess of Fertility (Fecunditas) - Augusta Salonina, where she is depicted as a strong, graceful woman, protecting and providing for her family.
She represented both prayers for future children and symbolised the unending love bestowed through maternity. On one side of the medallion, Augusta holds a newborn child in one arm, whilst holding the hand of an older child. This represented the sacred duty of the mother to both raise new children, but also to continually guide their children throughout life.
Through the ancient technique of lost wax casting, the medallion is cast from a genuine coin that is over 1700 years old.
The Augusta Medallion is handcrafted from Sterling Silver or 18ct Gold Plated Sterling Silver.
