This ring comes from a jewelry shop off Monastariki in Athens, Greece. I passed by this shop twice before entering. There was a collar necklace in the window that I couldn’t shake from my mental wantlist. The third time past, the owner, like a fairytale’s witch, coaxed me in from the doorway. This ring simply seemed right. Three brass olive leaves on an adjustable silver band, flowing from the crease of my fingers up and over my knuckls as if caught in a breeze. The olive tree and all its parts hold deep meaning for Greeks and as we drove up to Delphi, all of my classmates snapping photos of rippling silver olive groves (things I took for granted in La Mirada), I realized the olive tree was a deep part of my culture as well. You know me - I love symbolism, religious references, a good conversation starter - and it all seemed to perfectly coalesce in this piece.
