Symbol of longevity, protection and stability. Generally, the turtle is seen to represent self-containment, earthiness, patience and a steady approach to life.

It is often thought to be the wisest of souls among the animal kingdom. The ancient Greek word for turtle, 'chelone', was the name given to the famous coin of the Aegean island of Aegina. These were minted in their thousands at the turn of the 6th/5th centuries BC and were the first coins produced in Europe. They were minted in silver from the island of Siphnos.

This jewellery collection comes to us from one of the foremost and most well-established silver jewellery manufacturers in Greece. We are proud to have been working with them for over a decade.

The collection is inspired by ancient Greek silver and gold coins, the art and jewellery of the Minoan civilisation, familiar symbolic motifs and images, and the animals that played a significant part in ancient Greek culture.
