A patron of heroes, bright-eyed Athena is known for her wisdom, her crafts, and her strategic prowess. The great Greek city Athens named themselves after the goddess with the sparkling eyes, and in her honor, dedicated themselves to the pursuit of wisdom.

No bloodthirsty war goddess, Athena is a seasoned general, practiced and cunning, a stark contrast to Ares who revels in the blood and destruction of war. These Olympian deities and half-siblings championed opposite sides of the Trojan war and Athena, who gave her counsel and wisdom to Odysseus, led the Greeks to victory.

Always thinking several steps ahead, sharp-witted Athena bends situations to her favor. The pragmatic and composed war goddess will best the brutish war god every time. He is a house built on sand. Remember this when men speak over you in meetings.

This molten gold medallion depicts Athena wearing the Corinthian Helm for which she is famous, staring down the horizon and with head held high. Around half the size of the original Athena Medallion, she is cast in 100% solid gold and can be purchased with or without a chain.

Why Solid Gold 💫

Solid gold is the best option if you:

1. Want to wear your piece forever or pass it down as an heirloom. Solid gold will last for centuries without degrading.

2. Want to swim, shower, wash your hands, go to the gym in your jewelry. Solid gold is not affected by moisture like plated or sterling silver jewelry.

3. Care about investing in jewelry as an asset rather than an accessory. Gold traditionally appreciates in value and can always be melted down and made into a new piece.

Our gold is 100% certified recycled and each piece is handcrafted here in New York.

When will my piece ship?

Each solid gold piece is made to order in our NYC studio. Please allow two weeks for your custom made piece to ship :)

How do I decide between this piece and the original goddess medallion?

The originals are always selling out for a good reason - they are incredibly high quality gold vermeil pieces, set with sparkling gemstones. If you're looking for a statement piece that packs a punch, and you're happy to take your jewelry off whenever it might be anywhere near moisture, an original goddess is a fantastic choice.

This solid gold molten mini is the best choice for those of us that prefer to keep our jewelry on all the time and never worry about it getting wet. If this is a piece you see yourself wearing forever, the cost per wear is insanely low compared to gold vermeil, because solid gold lasts forever.

Either piece is a wonderful choice - it's really about which you love more and what suits your budget and lifestyle better!
