Gorgoneion Amulet Pendant

£89.00

In Ancient Greece, the Gorgoneion (AKA Medusa, one of the Gorgon sisters) was a special apotropaic amulet showing the Gorgon head, used most famously by the Olympian deities Athena and Zeus: both are said to have worn the gorgoneion as a protective pendant.

As is well known in mythological stories, just staring into Medusa's eyes turned you to stone. 

Each piece is hand carved by Olivia Cummings. She creates jewellery with emotional and historical relevance, dipping into the collective memory, all while respecting ancient jewellery-making traditions.

C A R E :  Just like you, our beautiful jewellery does need to be looked after. Skin and hair products can react, causing any plated jewels to tarnish and erode. Remove the piece before washing up, showers and bed to keep the gold plate bright. Apply perfumes, lotions and creams before you put your jewellery on.
