Calliope (kal·EYE·uh·pee) is the ancient muse of epic poetry and eloquence, historically invoked by illustrious writers like Homer and Dante. Calliope brings comfort to those seeking a steady voice in a crowded room, bestowing eloquence like honey upon the lips of the wearer. She brings divine inspiration, truth, and grace to writers, poets and all those who need a steady hand to guide their pen.

As the muse of the written word, Calliope is most often pictured with her stylus, a paper scroll or a book. This handcrafted pendant depicts Calliope in an original etching from 1832, accompanied by her book and lyre.

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

About Our Metals

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.

14k Solid Gold
Solid gold is an investment that lasts forever and is perfect to be passed down through generations, historically appreciating in value. Each solid gold piece is made to order within 4 - 6 weeks in our NYC studio.

Sterling Silver
Solid 925 sterling silver with a rhodium plate to help prevent tarnishing.
