Story 📜

Our bestselling Magic SATOR Square necklace is a statement piece that that customers have asked us to make in a mini version for years, and it's FINALLY here! Roughly half the size of the original, this piece is available in solid gold, handcrafted in New York City from 100% recycled gold.

The Magic SATOR Square was first discovered in the ruins of Pompeii, dating back to at least 79 BCE. In 1938, British classical historian Donald Atkinson said the square occupied the "mysterious region where religion, superstition, and magic meet, where words, numbers, and letters are believed, if properly combined, to exert power over the processes of nature”

The SATOR Square was often found carved on the walls of ancient houses all over Roman territories as a symbol of protection and a spell to ward off evil spirits, fevers and hexes. 

The word square contains five latin five-letter words that can all be read backwards and forwards, up and down. The words are: Sator Arepo Tenet Opera Rotas.

The words themselves have perplexed scholars for centuries, especially Arepo, which is not a Latin word, but believed to be a name. Thee most common translation of the square is ‘the farmer/gardener (SATOR) AREPO holds (TENET) and works (OPERA) wheels (ROTAS). (The Gardener Arepo holds and works the wheels/plough). Obviously, this makes little sense, which is why it is believed to have a hidden Roman meaning that has been lost to time. 

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 some pieces - please check above 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? 💵

Excellent question! The majority of brands sell through stores like Neiman Marcus, Net-a-Porter and local boutiques - this is called wholesaling.

The standard formula is that retailers can purchase jewelry at 50% off the RRP. They then double that price and sell it on to you. There is also an agreement that the brand cannot undercut the retailers and offer lower prices on their own website, so no matter where you shop, it's always the same price.

We do not wholesale our solid gold pieces - we make them in NYC to order.

This means we can offer an amazing price without the retail markup. It's that simple :)
