Known also as the 'Star of Vergina', this 16-rayed star was the symbol of Philip of Macedon, his son Alexander the Great, and of the ancient Macedonian Empire. It appeared on coins, vases, in jewellery and mosaics in all the different regions of the Greek world. Four rays represent the four elements (earth, water, fire, air) and the other twelve represent the 12 gods of Olympus.
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.
