in all kinds of jewelry from rings, earrings, bracelets, pendants to key rings.!!!
During the time we created other designs around the ancient Greek culture!
In the following years many young creators were influenced by our designs and creations,
they to make some copies or the variations on them.
Delphic Epsilon is an ancient Greek symbol (key) associated with the initiation of man into the light. For this reason it was located in the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, where the worship of the Sun was performed (Apollo was the god of the Sun).
Specifically, it was placed three times (wood, copper, gold) at the top of the pediment of the central east gate of the church, together with "ΓΝΩΘΙ ΣΑΥΤΟΝ" in the lower left corner and "ΜΗΔΕΝ ΑΓΑΝ" in the lower right of the same pediment. The origin of the symbol and the phrases was attributed to the seven wise men.

As a shape: union and trinity (three parallel lines joined).
As a number: the 5 cosmogenic elements Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Ether (quintessence).
The only information about Delphic Epsilon comes from Plutarch, who was a lifelong priest of Apollo. In "On Ei in Delphi", Plutarch gives various explanations in the dialogues, with the best being given by Ammonius (his teacher), as an address of surprise and respect to God, that is, Ei (sai), which translates as only you exist , the only sure thing that exists eternally, in contrast to the "self-knowledge" which is a reminder to the mortal being, with its changeable nature, which is subject to birth and decay.
The "Delphic commands " are a collection of sayings that were engraved on the front wall of the pronaos, on the pillars of the gate of the main temple, on the lintel of the temple and on the columns around the oracle of Delphi. It was the mortgages handed down by the Priests and the Seven Wise Men to the coming generations, benefits people living.
These orders were simple quotes of 2 to 5 words but full of wisdom, and most belonged to the 7 sages of antiquity (Thales the Milesian Pittakos the Mytilenean, Vias the Prieneus, Solos the Athenian, Cleobulus the Rhodian, Periandros the Corinthian Corinth ) and were engraved on the front wall of the Pronaos or on the pillars of the gate of the great temple or on the lintel or on the many columns, which were placed on the sides of the temple around the perimeter.
