There's a reason why they're called Rarities...
Antique buttons are becoming more, and more, difficult to find.

Most of the items below are antique buttons that have been bezel set in sterling silver.
There's an Austrian enamel, too.
But I'm happy to say that I am also featuring 3 real ancient Roman coins year!
(I bought a significant collection of antique coins in a parking lot years ago - but that's another story!)

Don't hesitate to ask questions!

Descriptions, and pricing for each, are below.

Each pendant drop will include a Sterling Silver Dot Necklace - value of the necklace is $75 alone.
Pricing includes pendant and necklace.
Pendants not sold individually.
Image sizes are relative.

 Caesar Ancient Roman Coin
