Wash-Thy-Sins Gold Cufflinks
Richly ornate 18K gold cufflinks with a deeply meaningful inscription around their perimeter. "Νιψον ανομηματα, μη μοναν οψιν," the Greek phrase meaning "Wash away thy sins, not only thy faces".
Particularly famous for having been inscribed above a fountain in the courtyard of the famous Church of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople (present day Istanbul in Turkey) during the Byzantine era (395 AD to 1453 AD), this inscription appears in a number of churches and monasteries throughout Europe (usually inscribed in all capitals) which creates the mirror-like effect represented on these unique cufflinks.
A powerful statement, a gentle reminder. The carefully detailed & symmetric central cross completes the face of each cufflink as a seal.
