The Aegis Ring is crafted from six golden Gorgoneion medallions arranged in a wreath around the finger.


Both Athena and Zeus are said to have carried an aegis on their person. Athena’s aegis is often depicted as a shield with the face of the monstrous gorgon upon it, with Homer writing in the Iliad that it “produced a sound as from a myriad roaring dragons”. Virgil writes that in the blacksmith Hephaestus’ workshop the aegis is repaired and shined, “a fearsome thing with a surface of gold like scaly snake-skin, and the linked serpents and the Gorgon herself upon the goddess's breast”. The Aegis provides protection and power to Athena, and the Gorgoneion is worn today as part of that same tradition.

Handcrafted and individually cast. Each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty. Nickel and lead free. Dimensions: Faces: 1cm wide x 0.8cm long.

Your unique piece of jewellery by Cleopatra's Bling has been handmade using traditional jewellery techniques and exceptional materials.

As we hand craft each piece, slight variations are to be expected and are what make our designs one-of-a-kind.

Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery.

Gold has a tendency to scratch, so extra care should be taken when wearing and cleaning to maintain quality and appearance.

Sterling silver that is worn regularly requires less care, so we encourage you to wear your silver treasures daily.

I hope my creations bring you luck.
