owner said this ring came back from an older relative’s trip to Greece. I
have heard that dolphins inhabit all the oceans of the earth, so they figure
in much of the world’s mythology. They were the messengers of the Greek god
Poseidon, who is often seen surrounded by dolphins. He is god of the
sea and of earthquakes, and dolphins were considered good luck and
associated with romance. A lovely ring with a mythological background, as
well as the figure of a wonderful animal.
