This extraordinary collection of jewelry takes inspiration from an unexpected source - the ancient bread from Pompeii. Each coin in this collection is a testament to the rich cultural heritage that has been preserved through time.  In 79 AD Mount Vesuvius erupted, burying the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in ash and preserving them for centuries. Amid the ruins of these cities, archaeologists uncovered ovens containing carbonized loaves of bread called panis quadratus.  In a delightful collaboration, we have partnered with the renowned YouTuber, Max Miller from Channel @TastingHistory. Max's dedication and expertise in recreating historical recipes led him to successfully recreate the very loaf of bread that inspired these exquisite coins. By using the same techniques and ingredients as those used centuries ago, Max breathed life into a forgotten delicacy.
