Grapes: the good life. Grapes and wine have always represented joy, bonding, plenty, freedom, rebirth, altruism, abundance, the literal taste of luxury, and even Jesus. There was a reason Jesus turned water into wine for the people. And we do like our wine!
Even the way grapes grow contributes to the fruit's symbolic meaning: The grapevine, with its far-reaching tendrils that connect various, far away points, along with bunches of grapes, are wonderful metaphors for a loving society, reaching out, and connectivity. Of course, all that unity is also one of the lovely effects of wine.
The Latin phrase ‘sub rosa” (under the rose) represents secrecy and discretion. In ancient Rome as far back as 800 BCE the rose became the symbol of confidentiality. Roses decorated the ceilings of Roman dining rooms to remind guests that what was said there under the influence of wine (sub vino) was also sub rosa, under the rose. In other words - - - shhhhh - - - we can all just relax, talk, and share: life is good with wine!
The Grapes have incredible detail with an abundance of individually set diamonds giving a feeling of luxury and understated elegance. Check the graphics for the entire Grapes Collection of various earrings, necklaces, and a ring.
