Melpomene (mel·POM·en·ee) is known as the ancient muse of tragedy, though her name actually stems from the ancient Greek melpô or melpomai meaning "to celebrate with dance and song." This is because she was originally the muse of the chorus, though later came to be associated with tragedy, the staged dramas that were the cornerstone of ancient Greek performance arts.

 

Melpomene is the muse of those who belong on the stage or screen, who see the beauty in broken things, who can draw silver linings on any cloud. She will help you find truth in sorrow and wrest meaning from tragedy.
 

This handcrafted pendant depicts Melpomene in an original etching from 1832, holding her ancient symbols, the dagger and club.

 

The trademark Common Era raised molten rim frames the pendant, which is suspended from a finely-woven Italian-made spiga chain.
 

18k Gold Vermeil

Solid 925 sterling silver plated with a 3 micron thick layer of 18 karat gold. Five times thicker than industry standard gold plating and composed entirely of precious metals. Gold Vermeil is a French technique that is a significant step up from regular gold-plated jewelry, which is most often made from cheap brass with a thin flash-plating of gold.
