Golden apples have been woven into Greek, Norse, and Irish mythologies, often connected to immortality and power. In Greek myth, a golden apple of discord sparks the beginning of the Trojan war, Hercules holds up the sky for Atlas in order to win apples for his eleventh task, and Melanion with help from Aphrodite wins a race against Atalanta for her hand in marriage by dropping three golden apples along the course to distract her.
So! Whether you're gaining immortality or luring someone into a carefully laid trap, enjoy wearing your little irresistible golden apple.
