The Elaia Collection is inspired by the Greek olive tree leaves, part of the most symbolic tree in nature. In Ancient Greece, the Olive tree leaf was a symbol of abundance, glory and peace. As emblems of benediction and purification, olive leaves were also ritually offered to deities and powerful figures. In the Olympic Games, the prize for victory was an olive leaf crown. In the Bible, the olive tree is the first tree mentioned in both testaments and it was an olive leaf that a dove brought back to Noah to demonstrate that the flood was over. In the Quran, prophet Mohamed said: "Take oil of olive and massage with it - it is a blessed tree."
This ring is made of olive leaf replicas, accurate down to the leaf's veins. This exquisite ring is made of .925 silver with 24k gold plating in Greece by local artisans and it makes a powerful statement with its simplicity but historical symbolism. This ring is also available without gold plating (sterling silver only) here.
