Olympia necklace is inspired from the olive tree, which we consider to be holy here in Greece. Wear it and be proud. Read below and you will understand why.
The ancient Greeks considered olives as a symbol of goodness and kindness, while even today, the olive branches symbolize peace. Their fruit has been considered holy since ancient times, a symbol of knowledge, wisdom, abundance, health, strength and beauty.
The symbolic meaning of the olive tree has existed in all areas of Greek life from antiquity to the present day. From 776 BC. at the Olympics, the only prize the Olympian received was a wreath made of olive branch and symbolizing peace and the obligatory truce in antiquity, all over the world, during the Games.
Even today in the agricultural areas of the country, an olive tree is planted when a child is born. The olive and the child will grow at the same time. When the child starts school, at the age of 6, the olive is ready to bear fruit. The olive tree will grow with the family, will survive and will be there many generations later to remind the continuity and evolution of life.
