The Epikourios Ring

$284.00
This ring was inspired by the Ionic order you can see on the columns of some temples in Greece, such as the Temple of Apollo Epikourios in Bassae, who was known to be the temple to the god of healing and the sun and is among the least known, least accessible, and most intriguing of all Greek temples. It is the only Greek temple to have incorporated all three ancient orders in its design: Doric for the exterior, Ionic for the cella or naos, and a single Corinthian column marking the entrance to the adyton or inner sanctum. The Ionic capital is characterised by the use of volutes - a spiral, scroll-like ornament. It is said that the woman's body inspired the Ionic order, with the capitals' volutes like the woman's hair to the flutes on the column shaft, which reminds of the folds of a woman's dress.  

Tiny diamonds were set to give to the ring a more sophisticated and precious tone.  It is a timeless piece that will remind you of the wonders of Greek Antiquity.
