"She accessorized her plunging top with a vintage Van Cleef and Arpels Virgo Zodiac pendant from the Seventies, featuring a a woman standing next to a unicorn, and a wide-brimmed straw hat."
I'd never heard of Betty Draper (or January Jones) before - this group is such an education
P.S. She appears to like that pendant, it's in several photos
At least an ancient coin wasn't holed to make it!
Agree, unicorn facing left on tbe jeweler's page.
Isn't it always?
One day they will figure a way to make coins that pass through the TPG's.
Why bother when they can just fake the slabs as well?
I've done further research. The Van Cleef & Arpels zodiac pendant series is amusing to a collector of ancient coins. Their gold version of an Aspendos stater represents Gemini (all these years, I thought those guys were wrestlers!). These zodiac pendants are also very expensive: $6,000-15,000 depending on the subject (and maybe the vintage). It might be cheaper to buy a genuine, holed or mounted gold stater!
I've got a Carthaginian stater with a horse that could tooled into a nice unicorn for the right price
or a piece of jewelry, and have trouble imagining that I ever would!
I don't believe that for a second.......pretty girl, nice figure, and you're looking at a medal or a coin? Are you human? A full figure of a damsel most extrainaire, and you're spying a piece of metal.......no wonder the population figures are down........
