Hades, the king of the Underworld, was struck dumb by Persephone's beauty as she picked flowers in a meadow. Infatuated and overcome with desire, he abducted her and took her back to the Underworld with him. Demeter, her mother, searched the world for her daughter. In her grief, she withered crops and turned soil infertile.
Persephone yearned for the sweetness of the life she left above. In her sorrow, she cracked open a pomegranate, and crushed a seed between her teeth. That single, tiny seed that passed her lips forever tied Persephone to the underworld. She would be allowed to return to her mother and the world of the living, but she was compelled to spend one third of the year as Queen of the Underworld.
Thus, as the springtime goddess retreated under the earth, leaves turned and fell, crops died, humans and animals huddled together as the land froze over. When the season passed, Persephone would emerge again, and the world would bloom.
This molten gold mini medallion honors Persephone with a crown of roses, melding her royalty and her power to make the world blossom. Around half the size of the original Persephone 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...
