Vivienne Becker says: "Bulgari’s ‘Monete’ is one of their most famous and enduring creations.  Introduced in the 1960s, developed from an idea of Nicola Bulgari, the Monete collection paid homage both to Bulgari’s Greek roots and Roman heritage by incorporating  ancient coins into contemporary jewellery.  For Bulgari, it was a way to give new life to fragments of the past, a concept also explored by 19th century Roman archaeological revival jewellers. These oval, disc-shaped earrings feature two bronze coins from ancient Persia, each depicting a stylised male head.  The reverse of each of the gold frame settings is engraved with the following UMAR-IBN AL-ALA 738 d.C. DRAMMA PERSIA DINASTIA DEI SASSANIDI."
