    • Product Details

          Athena was the goddess of wisdom, reasoning, and intelligence in Greek mythology. She enjoyed a vast popularity among gods and mortals. She had an extraordinary birth : after learning that his wife Metis was pregnant, Zeus swallowed her because of a prophecy that the child Metis was going to bear would try to overthrow him and become the lord of the heavens. But when it was time for Athena to be born, Zeus began to complain of a massive headache. Athena then sprang from his head fully grown and dressed in armor.


          Athena was known for her ferocity in battle but unlike Ares, she never displayed hotheadedness and always believed in fighting for justice and righteousness. She was the divine personification of reasoning, wisdom, and knowledge. The sheer scale of influence she had over the mortal world is evident from the fact that the city of Athens took its name after her.


          This coin is a tribute to women. Women are and will always be my inspiration. A woman's face was hand carved on the top part of the coin.

    • About the Brand
        • ELI-O is a swiss based jewelry brand, inspired by the founder’s greek roots. All of Elisa’s beautiful, unique pieces are sustainably made in her atelier in Geneva, using ecological gold and supporting local designers and manufacturers to minimize her environmental footprint.


          All of her creations are handmade to order in her workshop, and all of the pieces are carved in wax first and then cast in Geneva in recycled Silver 925 or recycled 18k Gold, using the ancient technique of lost wax casting.


          Deeply inspired by her Greek roots, the pieces are imperfect and will remind you of antique pieces. Elisa only uses precious metals because she wants her jewels to last - she doesn't plate any of her jewels and believes buying one of her creations is an investment you will keep for life and maybe pass down to the next generation.


          There are no collections as she wants her pieces to be timeless and worn everyday. Every now and then you will discover new pieces available for purchase.


          All of her Swiss furnishers are qualified members of the Responsible Jewellery Council.
