ALPHA - OMEGA RING
Design by NiTride
This Ring holds multiple aspects of greek culture including
Alpha - Omega
- Alpha and Omega (letters of greek alphabet)
- Boeotian shield (a spartan shield)
- Meander art (greek border art)
Alpha is the first letter of the greek alphabet. Symbolically it represents the beginning of something and represents a dominant figure. Omega is the last letter of the greek alphabet. Symbolically it represents the end of something. In Christianity, these two symbols are used together to create a title for God. As God is the beginning and the end of all things.
The shield that the symbol is placed on in this ring design is a boeotian shield, also known as a dipylon shield. It was used by spartan warriors in ancient greece.
The intricate pattern around the ring is meander art, which is a decorative pattern that was used within greek culture.
This ring also includes a curved inside surface for a comfortable fit.
