    The Bezel 14kt Rope Type 3 $1 Gold is an exquisite piece of jewelry that merges the rich history and artistry of the Type 3 $1 Gold coin with the elegance and sophistication of a 14kt gold rope-style bezel. This stunning combination serves both as a beautiful adornment and a valuable numismatic piece, making it a highly desirable item for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

    The Type 3 $1 Gold coin, introduced in 1856, represents the third and final design iteration of the gold dollar series minted by the United States. This design was created by Chief Engraver James B. Longacre and was intended to address the issues of the previous two designs, which were criticized for their weak strikes and susceptibility to wear. The Type 3 design remained in production until the gold dollar's discontinuation in 1889, making it a significant part of American numismatic history.

    The obverse of the Type 3 $1 Gold coin features a left-facing portrait of Liberty wearing a Native American-style headdress inscribed with the word "LIBERTY." This design, often referred to as the "Indian Princess" motif, was a departure from the classical Liberty designs of earlier coins. Surrounding Liberty are 13 stars, representing the original 13 colonies, along with the year of issue. This combination of elements symbolizes the nation's heritage and unity, reflecting Longacre's artistic vision.

    The reverse of the coin showcases an open wreath of cotton, corn, wheat, and tobacco, symbolizing America's agricultural abundance. Within the wreath is the denomination "1 DOLLAR" and the year of issue. The simplicity and balance of the reverse design complement the detailed obverse, creating a harmonious and visually appealing coin. The intricate engravings and fine details of the Type 3 design demonstrate Longacre's skill in creating a coin that is both functional and beautiful.

    The 14kt gold rope-style bezel that houses this historic coin adds a layer of luxury and sophistication to the already valuable coin. The intricate rope design of the bezel enhances the visual appeal of the piece by providing a textured, elegant frame that complements the coin's historical beauty. The rope bezel is meticulously crafted to securely hold the Type 3 $1 Gold coin, ensuring it can be worn as a pendant on a chain with confidence.

    The craftsmanship involved in creating the rope bezel ensures that it not only enhances the coin's appearance but also provides a secure setting that protects the coin from damage. The bezel's design allows the coin to be easily viewed from both sides, showcasing its historical artistry and preserving its numismatic value. The combination of the 14kt gold rope bezel and the classic coin results in a piece that is both beautiful and meaningful.

    The Bezel 14kt Rope Type 3 $1 Gold is more than just a piece of jewelry; it is a fusion of historical significance and modern elegance. Whether worn as a statement piece or added to a collection, this unique combination of a classic American gold coin and a beautifully crafted bezel offers both aesthetic and intrinsic value. It celebrates the rich heritage of U.S. coinage while providing a stunning piece of wearable art that is sure to be cherished for generations.
