Υour lucky charm for 2014!

As a lucky charm for the New Year we created a key-ring, inspired by the silver coin of Delphi. We combined the four dolphins depicted in the ancient coin with the number 4 in 2014, symbolizing at the same time the Greek culture and the new year. Dolphins are the symbols of luck, friendship, freedom and joy. They represent the death of the past and the rebirth of a new life and form the link between mankind and the magical world of endless sea.

This lucky charm is crafted by hand and is in brass with 24 carat gold-plating.

Diameter: 2,5cm
