Aphrodite is the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty. Through her starry eyes, golden Aphrodite sees a world full of unabashed love, and she has many strings to pull.
The enchantress has many faces: puppy love, romantic love, enduring, platonic, and self love, even unrequited love. The latter is most painful, and therefore, the best to write about.
Deeply in love with someone who did not return her feelings, Sappho wrote her famed hymn to Aphrodite, in which she begs the goddess for relief from her anguish.
This molten gold medallion is a representation of Aphrodite rising from the waves in Botticelli's famed work. Around half the size of the original Aphrodite 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.

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!
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...
