Found throughout Greek art and architecture, the "meander" motif, also called the Greek key, is one of the most important symbols in ancient Greece. The unending pattern first appeared in the Geometric period (900-700 B.C.) and historians believe that it symbolized eternity and unity. Others have interpreted that it symbolizes the antagonistic and forever entwined relationship between mortals and the gods. The pattern has continued through the centuries, and can still be seen in neoclassical architecture around the world.
These sterling silver accents are as timeless as the motif itself. Handcrafted in a family-run studio in Greece based on prototypes passed down through generations of gold- and silversmiths.
