Greek handmade Minoan Dolphin heart-shaped pendant, crafted in Silver 925 Platinum-plated.

It is maybe in the Minoan civilization that the first representations of dolphins appear, in the famous Knossos palace, showing the importance that Minoans attributed to dolphins. Dolphins have been also depicted in Greek ancient pottery pieces, seals, coins and mosaics. Dolphins also appear in myths and fables, forging close relationships and helping humans. In the Homeric hymn to Dionysus, we see how ancient Greeks explained the jovial and intelligent nature of dolphins, as well as their love for humans. According to this hymn, dolphins were once men, transformed into dolphins by god Dionysus.

All of our Silver jewellery carry the metal (925) and the Greek Workshop's stamps.
