A solid 14K yellow Gold Rectangular Medallion of a Cross in relief granulation design. It depicts the Byzantine two letter acronyms in Greek of the word ΙησουC (Jesus)(upper left corner) and ΧριστοC (Christ)(upper right corner) and the Greek word NIKA (Victorious) in the lower half. The back view is an embossed depiction of Saint Constantine alongside his mother Saint Helen (who discovered The Holy Cross in Jerusalem).
This is called: Konstantinato because it's design was inspired by a 24K gold coin first issued by Emperor Constantine, the first Christian Roman Emperor. For more than a 1000 years that coin was the "dollar of Europe", accepted everywhere as currency.
