Description

Athena, Goddess of Wisdom and Courage

The most sharp-witted and formidable of the Gods, even Athena’s birth was like no other—she sprung from the head of Zeus, fully grown and dressed in battle armor. She would go on to win wars, champion heroes, and invent tools and crafts for the betterment of mankind. As testament to her skill, she was the only one of Zeus’s children trusted to wield his mighty thunderbolt.

Long ago, in the rocky land of ancient Greece, a new city was founded. Athena and Poseidon, the God of the seas, both desired to claim patronage of the beautiful city. They agreed to hold a contest in which they would each bestow a gift upon the city, and the citizens would decide whose gift was better.

Poseidon went first and, smashing his trident into the ground, willed a seawater spring to leap from the earth. All were impressed at might of Poseidon but citizens had no use for saltwater - however abundant.

When Athena's turn came, with a wave of her gracious hand, she planted a sapling that grew into an olive tree. The people rejoiced, thinking of all the uses of olive trees: wood for building, oil for cooking and cleaning and trade, and the olives themselves. They named Athena victorious, and the city was called Athens. Today, the Parthenon still stands in her honor at the spot where she won claim to the glorious city.

In this pendant, Athena wears her Corinthian plumed helm, ready for battle. A natural blue sapphire, symbolizing wisdom, shines from a hand-drawn starburst.

Wear Athena to call upon the fearless goddess as patron whenever you may need her wisdom and courage.

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.

When will my piece ship? 🚚

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.

If not, it will display the estimated ship time so that we can custom make it for you in our NYC studio.

What does Traditional Retail Price mean? 💸

Most brands sell through boutiques and department stores, where the pricing model is usually a 2 - 4x markup from their wholesale price. For example, the jewelry brand sells the piece to the store for $1000, and then the store sells it to you for $2,500.

Because Common Era sells directly from our studio, we can give our customers the same pricing we would be giving to wholesale stores.


FAQ

When will my order ship?

All pieces except for made-to-order solid gold will ship within 24 hours on business days.

Solid gold orders ship from our NYC studio and the time to ship is indicated above the "Add to cart" button on those pieces.

What if my piece is lost in the mail?

This is in incredibly rare, but if it happens we will make it right with a free replacement.

Solid gold pieces are always shipped with signature required to ensure this doesn't happen.

Does your jewelry come in a box or a pouch?

Both! Our packaging is made in Chicago and consists of a peach-colored vegan suede pouch in a branded box, so they’re easy to wrap up as gifts.
