Fairly made, fairly priced

Terpsichore (terp·SIK·uh·ree) is the ancient muse of dance; her very name means “delighting in dance" from the Greek words terpsis τέρπω  "to delight" and choros χoρός "dance".

Terpsichore is the muse of those who are light of foot and light of heart; those who find joy and redemption in movement. She inspires dancers to push themselves to greatness, break down barriers, and express a spectrum of emotion without speaking a single word.

This handcrafted pendant depicts Terpsichore in an original etching from 1832, floating above the ground as if mid-leap.

The trademark Common Era raised molten rim frames the pendant, which is suspended from a finely-woven Italian-made spiga chain.

About 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? 🚚

Gold Vermeil pieces ship same day or next business day.

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.

About Gold Vermeil

Gold Vermeil, pronounced ver-may, is a french term for a style of gold plating that is regulated by the federal government. Unlike "gold plated" jewelry, vermeil must always be on a solid 925 sterling silver base - rather than brass - with at least 2.5 microns thickness of gold. This is 3 times thicker than normal gold plating.

This makes vermeil a longer lasting product than gold plated jewelry, as well as more valuable because it's composed entirely of precious metals.

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.
