14K TWO-TONE GOLD GREEK KEY HUGGIE EARRINGS

In the ancient world and, above all, among the Greeks, human nature was held in high esteem. ~ Elie Metchnikoff

The Greeks had some profound ideas about relationships between men and women. Take Psyche and Cupid, for instance. Psyche’s perseverance overcame all the obstacles that Cupid’s mother, Persephone, challenged her with, and eventually Psyche and Cupid were allowed to wed. Love does, indeed, conquer all! They were also masters of beauty in literature and in art. The design of the Greek key proceeds from the shape of the River Meander in Ancient Greece (now Modern Turkey), a motif that is repeated many times. It symbolizes the bonds of friendship, love and devotion, and most importantly, infinity.

Our beautiful, two-tone gold huggie earrings measure just ½” in diameter, but they are strong enough to last a lifetime at 5.5mm thick. The motif “meanders” around the earrings, crossing from 14k yellow gold in the front to 14k white gold in the back. A secure, hinged closure keeps them safely in your ears through whatever your day and evening bring you. Best of all, they’re made in the U.S.A. and come with a 45-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee!

14K GOLD CUT-OUT GREEK KEY BAND RING FOR WOMEN

If you go back to the Greeks and Romans, they talk about all three – wine, food, and art – as a way of enhancing life. ~ Robert Mondavi

Although the Greeks claim to have the keys to intensifying the good things in life, most early post-classical illustrations of ancient Greek themes feature gods, demi-gods, and mortals wrapped in flowingly draped robes without even much color. However, ancient literature tells a different story, one of decorative embellishments found in ancient Greek dress. And the most common motif was a rectilinear meander along with other abstract forms of wave patterns and geometric repeats. The Greek Key pattern appears most often in designs meant to call to mind the antique.

With the rich, central theme of the ancient Meander’s convoluted path in mind, we have created an elegant, 14k gold, cut-out Greek Key band ring perfect for women who love their adornments to have history behind them. If you’re looking for a significant gift that she’ll truly cherish, couple this golden ring and its copious detailing with our 14K Gold Cut-Out Greek Key Huggie Hoop Earrings and she’ll believe you are a man among the gods! And just in time for the holidays! See more of our ambrosial offerings in our collection of Greek Key Rings.

18K ROSE GOLD GREEK KEY WEDDING BAND RING

Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. ~ Robert Kennedy

The classical past has been awakened by the use of patterns and designs from the repository of ancient ornament, especially those referencing the attributes of the Olympian deities. Though styles continue to change, the ones that become classics do so because they evoke an enduring and persistent image of beauty through the vibrant imagery of classical motifs.

Aphrodite was said to have been the goddess of love and beauty in ancient Greece mythology, yet even she in all her glorious splendor didn’t have a ring to equal this one. A blaze of 14k rose gold fashions the Greek Key imagery that encircles the ring, bordered by two braids of white gold, and set in a band of solid 14k white gold—a perfect foil for the contrasting rosy hues. Perhaps now is the ideal time to get down on bended knee and appeal to your own goddess of eros to become your forever love. This unique ring is also available in Greek Key Wedding Band, 14K Two-Tone Gold and Platinum and 18K Gold Greek Key Wedding Band, all part of our timeless collection of Greek Key Jewelry.
