Jewel made entirely by hand by the Italian craftsman Gianmarco Fontana. This 925 silver ring depicting Socrates is part of the “Ancients” collection.

Socrates, son of Sofroniscus of the demos of Alopece (in ancient Greek: Σωκράτης, Sōkrátēs; Athens, 470 BC / 469 BC Athens, 399 BC), was an ancient Greek philosopher, one of the most important exponents of the Western philosophical tradition.
The most important contribution he made to the history of philosophical thought consists in his method of investigation: the dialogue that used the critical instrument of the elenchos (ἔλεγχος, élenchos = "refutation") applying it mainly to the common examination (ἐξετάζειν, exetάzein) of fundamental moral concepts. For this Socrates is recognized as the founding father of ethics or moral philosophy.
