Story 📜

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.

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 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.

We keep a small inventory of solid gold pieces - please check about the 'Add to Cart' button to see if your piece is in stock.
