The olive branch symbol originated all the way back in ancient Greek mythology with the goddess Athena, and continued with the ancient Greek tradition of brides and Olympic winners wearing 'crowns' of olive branches.
Not long afterward, Christians established the combined symbol of an olive branch and a dove as a symbol of peace.
To this day the olive branch is still used as a symbol of peace and is offered as a peaceful gesture to foes to forgive and forget and “let bygones be bygones”.
The simplicity of this ring reflects the sincerity of a wish for peace, and at the same time it also retains the classical beauty of an olympic winner's award.
