IRIΔA DROPS | Metallon

A necklaces collection made with carefully chosen colourful gemstones in multiple cuts to enhance the reflection of light.

Iris ("ΙΡΙΔΑ"-Irida in modern Greek) was the goddess of the rainbow and the messenger of the Olympian gods. Iris was a goddess of sea and sky--her father Thaumas "the wondrous" was a marine-god, and her mother Elektra "the amber" a cloud-nymph.
For the coastal-dwelling Greeks, the rainbow's arc was most often seen spanning the distance beteween cloud and sea, and so the goddess was believed to replenish the rain-clouds with water from the sea. In myth she appears only as an errand-running messenger and was usually described as a virgin goddess. She was often described as the handmaiden and personal messenger of Hera. Her name contains a double meaning, being connected with both the Greek word iris "the rainbow" and eiris "messenger."
