Handcrafted 14k solid gold setting. c. 450-300 B.C. Silver Stater. Grace and beauty are captured in one mythic image. This remarkable pendant features a silver stater minted in Corinth, Greece. Struck in high relief, it has withstood the test of time, allowing us to fully appreciate the masterful details that are still clearly visible today. Equally beautiful on both sides, one view features the legendary Pegasus with wings aloft, while the other view represents the goddess Athena, whose golden bridle tamed the winged horse. The 14k solid gold setting sets off the silver stater to perfection. Corinth was a wealthy, powerful city in ancient Greece, drawing influence from its control of a crucial strip of land and command of trade in the western Mediterranean. Because of its position, the Pegasus coins, called the "Colts of Corinth," were well-respected far beyond the actual city. This silver stater (circa 400-350 BC) features the graceful Pegasus with wings poised for take-off on one side; the other showcases Athena, goddess of wisdom, wearing a Corinthian helmet. Notice the Greek letter Koppa (Q) below Pegasus, which signifies that the coin was minted in Corinth.
