Hippocamp Amulet Charm
This double-sided coin can be flipped within its circular frame and worn on either side. The amulet symbolizes protection and is hand carved out of lustrous 18k yellow gold featuring turquoise hoplite shields and a hand-carved lapis Hippocamp tail.
The front side of the Hippocamp Amulet features motifs drawn from an Ancient Phoenician coin depicting three Greek hoplite soldiers holding shields and sailing in a war ship with a lion’s head at the prow, and a Hippocamp swimming below above a murex shell. A Hippocamp is a sea creature of Greek mythology with a horse’s body and a fish’s tail, thought to be the adult version of a seahorse.
