Gorgoneion Lion Hoops
Combine the protective properties of the Gorgoneion and the power of the Lion with these mix-and-match hoops from Cleopatra's Bling. In Ancient Greece, the Gorgoneion 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. The lion coin replica charm is assumed to be from the ancient kingdom of Lydia western Asia Minor (present-day Turkey).
✦ 3 Microns Thick 18K Gold Plated

Handcrafted and individually cast. Each piece is unique, which we believe gives it its beauty. Nickel and lead-free. Cleopatra's Bling works with a small studio in Bali that is part of the RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council). They use recycled and refined materials wherever possible, and have no lead or nickel in any of the alloy metals.
