Handcrafted all American made U.S. Jefferson Nickel “Peace Medal“ Cutaway Design Coin Necklaces with Rope Bezel are genuine (2004) U.S. Jefferson Nickel coins in new uncirculated condition. To start the process a small hole is drilled in the coin, then a very fine jewelers saw blade is inserted through the hole and worked around the coins design, cutting away the background. Leaving the coins figure floating inside its outer edge rim. The figure is then selectively layered in Brilliant Gold & Silver, the gold & silver work is completed by hand. Each work of art comes mounted in a beautiful Gold Filled rope edge type bezel and on a good quality 14K gold layered 18 in. rope chain. and in a nice jewelry box.
