We often hear about the Roman Emperors, but much less frequently do we hear about the Roman Empresses who were married to them. Livia Drusilla became the 3rd and final wife of Emperor Augustus of the Roman Empire. Despite the patriarchal society she was born into, Livia used her wits, inner-strength and beauty to establish a dynasty. Livia was so revered, that after her death she was named a goddess in her own right: Diva Augusta.
The Livia Necklace in 18k Polished Gold Vermeil is an ode to the will power, strength and beauty of this incredible woman.
