The 10 Drachmai Greek Coin Pendant displays a combination of strength and beauty in its stainless steel composition and side wing portrait of Pegasus. Pegasus is a child of the Olympian god Poseidon. He is a mythical winged stallion in Greek Mythology. Symbolic of wisdom and fame, Pegasus is on the reverse of the 10 Drachma Greek coin minted in 1973 by engraver Nikos Perantinos. The 10 Drachmai coin gracefully hangs from a 24 inch silver-tone rope chain with a lobster claw clasp.

Stainless Steel
Stainless steel, also called corrosion resistant steel, is a steel alloy with added iron and chromium. The metal is low maintenance, rust-resistant, durable, highly lustrous and extremely hygienic, making it ideal for items such as cookware, knives, surgical instruments, jewelry and watches.

The nearly-indestructible and masculine nature of stainless steel is appealing for many jewelry styles. It has a similar appearance to platinum and polishes to a glistening sheen. Any scratches that may occur from day to day wear can be easily buffed away without endangering the piece. Unlike traditional gold, silver or platinum jewelry, stainless steel jewelry is not poured into molds, but is usually hand-cut from a solid piece of steel, leaving no seams or weak spots. With stainless steel, your jewelry will last a lifetime.

Stainless steel was first recognized in France in 1821 by metallurgist Pierre Berthier. He realized the iron-chromium alloys maintained resistance from acids and recommended their use in cutlery. After several corrosion-resistance related discoveries and patents in Europe and the United States, Harry Brearley in England discovered a modern blend of stainless steel alloy. When it was announced by The New York Times in January of 1915, he was officially credited with the invention of this impressive modern metal.
