Height: 4cm, Width: 2cm
The ankh is synonymous with life and energy. It is the ancient Egyptian hieroglyph of life. Also known as the breath of life, the key of the Nile and crux ansata ('cross with a handle' in Latin), this ancient symbol remains an icon and talisman.
It has been a privilege to work with the Vaphiadis family since 2007. They are one of the best manufacturers of sterling silver jewellery in Greece.
The collection is inspired by ancient Greek silver and gold coins, the art and jewellery of the Minoan civilisation, familiar symbolic motifs and images, and the animals that played a significant part in ancient Greek culture.
