Galatea - meaning milky white in ancient Greek - is the name given to the statue, carved from ivory by Pygmalion of Cyprus. The myth tells that the sculptor found the statue he created so beautiful, that he begged the Gods to bring her to life. Aphrodite, taking pity on him, breathed warmth into Galatea and united the pair of lovers in marriage. The Galatea Studs are set with solid Australian opal. The Galatea Ring is set with solid, white, Australian opal, which will - as it is a natural gem - differ slightly from ring to ring. It is handmade to order in our Italian studios.
