The Kore Ring features a raised hexagonal face, in which a round freshwater pearl is embedded.
Kore, Demeter's daughter, was trapped in the Underworld after picking a narcissus - the small hole beneath the flower opened up into a gaping chasm and swallowed the beautiful goddess whole. She soon fell in love with Hades, but upon seeing her mother’s sadness, he returned her to her family on the condition that she spend four months with him each year. To ensure her return he placed food of the underworld - a pomegranate seed - in her mouth.
The Kore Ring's pearlescent seeds symbolise the pomegranate, reminding us of our balance of duties.
