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.
About 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 invest 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
Unlike many brands, our gold is never hollow - it is always 100% solid, cast using the lost wax method, meaning there is a lot more gold in each piece.
Our gold is 100% certified recycled and each piece is handcrafted here in New York.
100% recycled solid yellow, white gold, or 18k gold vermeil
15mm x 15mm (excluding bail)
If purchasing solid gold medallion, chain will also be 14k solid gold
If purchasing 18k vermeil medallion, chain will also be 18k vermeil
20 inch cable chain with lobster clasp
When will my piece ship?
We keep a small inventory of some pieces - please check above the 'Add to Cart' button to see if your piece is in stock.
If not, it will display the estimated ship time so that we can custom make it for you in our NYC studio.
What does Traditional Retail Price mean?
Excellent question! The majority of brands sell through stores like Neiman Marcus, Net-a-Porter and local boutiques - this is called wholesaling.
The standard formula is that retailers can purchase jewelry at 50% off the RRP. They then double that price and sell it on to you. There is also an agreement that the brand cannot undercut the retailers and offer lower prices on their own website, so no matter where you shop, it's always the same price.
We do not wholesale our solid gold pieces - we make them in NYC to order.
This means we can offer an amazing price without the retail markup. It's that simple :)

How We Price Our Ethical Jewelry
People are always curious about how jewelry companies price their pieces - how can that tiny little piece be worth $3000? I was one of those skeptical people until I founded...
