Or maybe Diana? (Artemis?)

It could be Artemis, but I don't think it is. She is portrayed as having short hair in century statues, though a helmet that allows you to look up would appeal to an archer. I will have to ask Nick about this one! He would know.

Hey, jkath. Contact my friend Bernard here. He's a certified gemologist, among other things and is a wizard when it comes to evaluating/identifying/appraising jewelery, etc. He won't give you any bull poopie either. If he doesn't know what it is, he'll tell you and/or point you in the direction of someone who will help you. He's been in the jewelry business for over 25 years and has built a great business.

He's also a DC member and an all-around good guy. I'll call him and tell him to be on the lookout for your query. I'll bet he'll be able to identify your beautiful piece of jewelry.

The nose definitely looks like early Roman or Greek art, so Athena sounds right.

I also am thinking greek or roman definitely not even early american. I'm leaning towards greek it will be fun to find out.

Very pretty and intricate.

And yes, Helen brought down Troy, she didn't help defend it.
C'mon, we've all seen the movie haven't we?

This may be of interest, too.

"Art Nouveau styles became popular during the last decade of the 19th century. Asymmetrical lines and elaborate ornamentation were key Art Nouveau elements, and designs often depicted flowers and plants, the female form, and flowing hair. Learn more about Art Nouveau jewelry here."

From: Art Nouveau Jewelry - Facts About Jewelry from the Art Nouveau Period

It looked art nouveau when I saw it and this was the first link I clicked on.

Oh,and that would put it in the right time frame.
