The Athena Proverb Medallion was created to remind us of the importance of love. The back of the medallion is inscribed with proverb " the heart that loves is always young "
This proverb is very important to us because love is universal. Self-love is at the top of this list. Some say it's much more difficult to love yourself than it is to others. We can turn to loving other people as a form of validation of our own self-love which can be disastrous because when that person exits our life and are gone, so are we. If you can not love yourself, you will be incapable of loving other people and may not be open to accepting love, all forms of it, within friendships, family, significant others, work-life etc. Love and appreciation go hand in hand. In order to love, you must appreciate first. All the good and bad within yourself and other people; all the strengths and all the flaws. We can age physically, but when our hearts are open and filled with love (for ourselves and others) you can have the spirit of being young forever.
Our proverb medallions were created to have wise reminders close to us daily.
Brass with 14kt gold plating
The signature Fredrick Prince chains that everyone has come to know and love are purchased in their raw form – brass. When making our vision come to life during the design process, we work with raw brass – a dark, gritty metal – and then plate it using a local third-party jewelry plater.
Our original designs are primarily plated in oxidized brass or oxidized sterling silver. The plating process is a tedious one, requiring countless hours from platers to manually wipe each chain with a special cloth designed to remove the levels of oxidation to ensure we get that recognizable Fredrick Prince style and achieve distinctive, consistent plating on each piece. We also use 14k gold plating, to add an extra pop of luxuriousness to our pieces.
We chose brass as our primary design element for its significant weight; for its ability to hold plating well, thus achieving that unmistakable Fredrick Prince look.

We achieve our unique aesthetic by fusing a signature mix of genuine semi-precious gemstones and bold chains. The metal and plating we use to create our chain gives Fredrick Prince its edge, while the stunning quality, cuts, and bold, rich colour of our carefully hand-chosen stones make each piece feminine and luxurious.
Our expertly selected semi-precious gemstones are picked from bead strands that are typically pre-cut and drilled, and are removed individually, one by one, ensuring only the best of the best makes the cut into your final piece of jewelry. We take pride and care when picking out our stones -- you’ll never find a plastic bead in any of our designs.
All of our semi-precious stones are globally sourced and selected for their beautiful, unique qualities and characteristics, like their distinct strengthening, energy and healing properties. We will also occasionally feature vintage glass beads for an added special touch. An extended description of gemstone properties corresponding to individual pieces can be found on each product page.
Some gemstones are limited in availability and harder to source, however, that won't stop us from making a small number of pieces that capture the original, one-of-a-kind statements in true Fredrick Prince craftsmanship.
