Your help for identification of Greek symbol
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 03-21-07 , 12:17 AM


Hi Diamond Ring family!

What about this "G" symbol that I have found on a white gold pendant which was manufactured in Greece? Could somebody give me explanations please? Is this a trademark, a Greek letter or what?

Thank you

Here is my FANTASTIC drawing

I think it is just a part of a pattern.

Could it be part of the pattern? - maybe post a photo of the pendant so we can see the context of the symbol?

Hm....I did a little looking around, and couldn't find any Greek symbols that look like that, so Platinumsmith may very well be correct that it's just a pattern.

Maybe someone who knows more will pipe in with something else.

I think it may be a "greek key" design. I found an explanation here: www.kalopedis.com.

Greek Key jewelry, or simply the Greek Key, is known as Meandros. This symbol relates back to all the ancient Hellenic States of Greece as a symbol for eternity. That is perhaps one of the reasons that Greek style jewelry will always remain fashionable. Gold Greek rings and pendants, as well as earrings and bracelets are timeless designs which any fan of the Greek culture should have in a personal jewelry collection.

Here are some other examples of Greek Key jewelry I got off the site linked above. (Some of them look more like 'S's, than 'G's.)

Do you think this might be it?

Widget, you are exactly correct!

I am not Greek but I am married to a Greek. Anyway, it's very common for Greek wedding bands to have this symbol to symbolize eternity and being together "forever."
