Game On: Olive Wreath Charm
Game On: Limited edition for the year of the games!
Olive wreath also known as Kotinos was the prize for the winner at the ancient Olympic Games.
It was a branch of the wild olive tree that grew at Olympia intertwined to form a circle or a horse-shoe. The branches of the sacred wild-olive tree near the temple of Zeus were cut by a “pais amfithalis” (a boy whose parents were both alive) with a pair of golden scissors. Then he took them to the temple of Hera and placed them on a gold-ivory table. From there, the Hellanodikai (the judges of the Olympic Games) would take them, make the wreaths and crown the winners of the Games.
May this olive wreath charm bring you success and victory in all your pursuits. Wear it as a good luck charm! Recommended to be worn with our bangle bracelets or chains.
