This ring showcases an authentic Greek silver coin from the 4th century AD, featuring a depiction of Medusa, one of the three Gorgons. Medusa, a prominent figure in Greek mythology, held a fearsome reputation, known for her ability to petrify those who gazed upon her with a single glance. This terrifying power led to the widespread use of Gorgon images as protective symbols in ancient Greece, incorporated into various objects and structures.
The Gorgons, including Medusa, played a significant role in the early written records of Greek religious beliefs, such as those found in the works of Homer. Their mythical and formidable gaze was believed to possess the power to turn individuals into stone, making their images a popular choice for warding off harm and evil. By placing representations of the Gorgons on objects and buildings, the ancient Greeks sought protection and invoked a sense of security.Our brand's exquisite jewelry collection pays homage to these ancient traditions, and every piece comes with a certificate of authenticity, attesting to its Greek or Roman origin.
