Greek Pendants

The Greek Key/meander motif took its name from the river Meander in ancient Greece (present day Turkey). The Meander was characterised by a very convoluted path. It became the most important symbol in Ancient Greece, symbolising infinity or the eternal flow of things.

The ‘meandros’ or ‘Greek key’ symbol is seen and commonly used all over the world but it’s meaning is often overlooked. It is a pattern made up of interlocking right-angles spirals said to symbolise infinity and unity. There are the great Greek philosophers that everybody knows by name: Socrates, Plato, Aristotle. The great engineers and scientists like Archimedes, The great writers like Homer.
