The center stone is a precious antiquity tile gem, with at least a few hundred years old. One can see that through the quality of the intaglio craftsmanship that this is in fact the work of an skilled artisan. Sourced from an antique dealer in the grand Bazaar of Turkey. An artifact from the Etruscan period. It is a depiction of the Greek god Hermes. The figure has winged feet and is holding a specter, iconic traits that only Hermes has. Rafael Indiana hand carves his pieces from wax making each piece unique, which we believe is what gives the product its authentic ancient beauty.
Hermes was the ancient Greek god of trade, wealth, luck, fertility, animal husbandry, sleep, language, thieves, and travel. One of the cleverest and most mischievous of the Olympian gods, he was the patron of shepherds, invented the lyre, and was, above all, the herald and messenger of Mt. Olympus.
Every Rafael Indiana piece of jewelry is unique and the symbiosis of the best materials and the highest form of craftsmanship. Every gemstone is sourced ethically and sustainably from exclusive suppliers. Each piece is then carefully crafted by hand, in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul with the uttermost respect to the integrity of the materials: the result is a museum quality artifact made to last.
