This pendant is a replica cast directly from a genuine museum display coin. Athena is the goddess of wisdom and warfare, as well as the patron goddess of Athens (features the owl of wisdom on the back).

This was a heavy coin, struck as a commemorative issue in a Athens in about 400 BC.
DIAMONDS: known as the "stone of invincibility" (due to its hardness as a stone), diamonds are symbols of victory and the superior strength (physical, emotional, mental) of the wearer. Diamonds have also been referred to as the "king of gems", being the hardest known natural substance as well as its superior light reflective abilities.
