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. The gods associated, Dionysus (Dionysos), Bacchus, Liber Pater, are the gods of fruitfulness, vegetation, best known as the gods of wine and ecstasy.
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 look and feeling of luxury. Truly a subtle beauty.
These can be customized for you; made in any metal and stone combination to perfectly fit your budget and taste. The chain is handmade, may not always be available, and is not made in sterling silver, but we can find lots of fabulous alternatives. Whatever look you want, we will be sure this fits you perfectly.
