Handmade solid yellow bronze reproduction of a Greek coin from 390 BC representing Persephone.
In Greek mythology, Persephone is the goddess of the underworld. She is the daughter of Zeus & Demeter, goddess of the harvest. She was abducted by Hades and Hermes was sent by Zeus to make Hades release her. He did, but not before he gave her a pomegranate ( or pomegranate seeds). When she ate them it bound her to the underworld forever. She had to stay in the underworld 4 months out of every year.
The original coin was Created by the master Euainetos. It is very similar to a coin made by the great engraver Kimon. His coin had the head of Arethusa on the reverse and was made around 408 B.C.
It is one sided.
The coin is 1 1/8" wide.
I make my own molds and do not use the technique of casting so each piece is individually made.
Different 14k gold filled chain length and thickness options are available.
The thin chain is 1.4mm.
The med chain is 2.3mm.
Gold filled has 100 times more gold than plated thus does not rub or peel off.
