It doesn't seem to be genuine, as far as I know.

Why do you think it is not genuine?

I am the one who is usually suspicious of coins, but I see nothing that makes me suspicious here.  It would, of course, help if we had the weight, but that would require destroying the piece of jewelry.

Best Description would probably be:

Amisos as Peireus, Pontos, AR Persic standard drachm

400-300 BC.
Turreted, draped bust of Hera left, wearing necklace and earring
ΠEIΡA beneath owl with spread wings, standing facing

Weight should be in the neighborhood of 5.5 grams or so

Yours looks like it was cleaned a little harshly to make it shiny for the jewelry piece.

This is an interesting one. When I go to this property in Greece I will show your picture to my really good friend who knows a lot about coins. I will let you know his answer by this weekend.
