I love a classic!One of the most recognized Owls in the world, the Athenian owl is from coin in ancient Greece. It was the heaviest and most standardized coin of it's time from 500bc-500ad. (On the original ancient coin , the owl was on the back side and a portrait of Athena, the goddess of wisdom and warfare is on the front.)I did a modern take on it using thick sterling silver in a die press, similar to minting a coin.There are ten Sapphires gemstones in a variety of colors set in to the front. The sapphires range in 1.25mm-2mm in size. The back side is hand stamped with a celestial eye and stars.The pendant has a nice weight to it and is 1-3/8" across (35mm).The sterling chain is 24" long and is also of a nice and heavy weight.This is also available without and gemstones, see other listing.
