Thermopylae Band: Stand with Honor

(thur-MOP-uh-lee)

Times may change, but a warrior’s soul does not. Determination and grit are baked into the marrow of their bones. And while present-day challenges take on completely different forms than the past, the warrior’s mental toughness serves him well in this modern version of the battlefield. Where each day brings new challenges, the Thermopylae Band ring reminds us that every battle is yet another opportunity to stand with honor.


As part of our BattleWorn collection, the Thermopylae Band is about brotherhood, honor, and resolve. It captures a moment in time. A moment where a group of warriors drew a line in the sand, standing their ground for everything they believed in. All of them knowing that the odds were overwhelmingly against them—but also knowing that their brothers had their backs.


Whether you choose the Thermopylae Band or its brother-in-arms, the original Thermopylae Ring, the souls of the ancient Spartans live on. Bold and unafraid, standing tall in the face adversity—they're the ultimate symbol of the warrior’s resolve.


The Thermopylae Band is crafted to tell the tale of one of the most famous battles in history: The Battle of Thermopylae. It depicts the legendary bravery of the 300 Spartan citizen-soldiers who stood against the invading Persian army of Xerxes. Each of the 300 went into battle knowing they were outnumbered, and yet they did not retreat. They chose to stand and fight for their convictions and their way of life, their families, and their homeland.

Look closer. The more you study the Thermopylae Band ring, the more the details of the Battle of Thermopylae are revealed.
