This jewellery collection combines simple, yet unique details inspired by the Greek olive tree, Elaia.
Legend has it that Zeus offered a contest between Athena and Poseidon for the possession of Athens. Poseidon raised up his three-pronged trident, smashed it on the hard rock of Acropolis to create a well but the water turned out to be salty and thus unusable for the people of Athens. Athena on the other hand produced an olive tree. The Athenians chose Athena’s gift and the olive tree has since remained a central part of Greek life for all of its profound qualities. The dramatic showdown between the two powerful Olympians was immortalised in stone, depicted on the West pediment sculptures of Parthenon.
Working in gold, silver, olive wood and diamonds, Venyx’ special collaboration with Zeus+Dione offers the same attention to detail and craftsmanship as our main line.
