This sterling silver cuff bracelet features a chain of dual-swirls (which forms a sort of figure 8), with a rope design bordering either side. The actual purity of the bracelet is .970 silver, but it is stamped as .935, which is the maximum allowed in Greece. The metal is very soft, which makes the bracelet adjustable.

The swirl motif is inspired by the Ancient Greek mythological Labyrinth, which was an elaborate structure designed and built by the legendary artificer Daedalus for King Minos of Crete at Knossos. Its function was to hold the Minotaur, a creature that was half man and half bull and was eventually killed by the Athenian hero Theseus. Daedalus had made the Labyrinth so cunningly that he himself could barely escape it after he built it. Theseus was aided by Ariadne, who provided him with a skein of thread, literally the "clew", or "clue", so he could find his way out again.
