Phaistos Disc Drop Earring
These exquisite earrings handmade in Greece feature two significant Greek motifs. The Greek Key or the ‘Meander', is the most important symbol in Ancient Greece, symbolizing infinity or the eternal flow of things. Hanging from the Greek Key is a pendant representing the Phaistos Disc from the Minoan Palace on the Greek island of Crete. It is dated to the Minoan Bronze Age, around 1700BC and depicts 242 symbols stamped in a spiral pattern. To this day it is one of archeology’s most famous mysteries.
