Story

Known for her powerful witchcraft, Circe embodies the magic of nature. She grew herbs and shrubs with medicinal properties: mandrake to protect herself, peony to ease pain, snowdrop and yarrow, poppy and rue. You can still find echoes of Circe’s work today: the licorice root in your skincare serum, or in aspirin, made from willow bark.

One of Circe’s most popular myths is found in Homer’s *Odyssey*, wherein Circe transforms Odysseus’s men into pigs. Often, she is reduced to just this one story, where she plays the part of the *femme fatale,* a powerful and beautiful woman that men find intimidating—and, in their fear, try to control. It’s a tale as old as time.

But turning men into pigs was an act of defense, not cruelty. Circe would not suffer the brutality of men who would control her. And though it’s probably not the best way to deal with *all* of your problems, there is a point in every woman’s life where she really could’ve used powers like that.

Multi-faceted and intelligent, Circe was a goddess that had to do it all herself, and thus has become a symbol of knowledge and feminine power. When you wear Circe about your neck, manifest her power, and remember that your destiny is yours to control.

This molten gold medallion honors Circe's independent spirit, her gaze aloft when most women were expected to lower their eyes. Around half the size of our original Circe Medallion, she is cast in 100% solid gold or 18k gold vermeil 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.
