All About the Grape Vine
The alchemist and author of ‘The Meaning of Masonry’ W.L. Wilmshurst explains that the unborn soul of humanity is trapped in the material world.
The challenge is to find our path back to divinity:‘The exact science of the regeneration of the human soul from its present sense-immersed state
into the perfection and nobility of that divine condition in which it was originally created.’ wise men of yore used nature to fashion their symbolism.
Literally speaking, the grapevine is a plant which grows in abundance and the fruit harvested to make wine in which we see the reflection of birth
and rebirth. (https://mastermindcontent.co.uk/the-esoteric-meaning-of-grapes/)
The Greek God of wine, Dionysus
Dionysus is one of the most interesting Gods of ancient myth. He is a paradox and the legends about him can appear confusing. The god of wine
is sometimes included in the 12 Olympian Gods, but is interchanged with Hestia. The earliest cult images of Dionysus show him holding a fennel
staff tipped with a pine cone. In symbolism, the pine cone represents the pineal gland which is believed to secrete melatonin. Grapes also contain
melatonin, an antidote to fight stress. Dionysus’ association with wine represents the intoxicating influence of somebody in a state of illumination.
Enlightenment is a state of pure bliss, joy and love. Wine is said to liberate the mind of self-conscious fears whereby revelers become carefree.
But given wine is also associated with partying and thus “ritual madness” we also see the dualistic nature of Dionysus.

How to Style This Piece
"In my opinion, being such an interesting and elegant piece, this pendant should be the center of attention. But you'll still need to pair with another piece
to make it pop a little more. You don't want to dress up with jewels too much so it doesn't get lost. Instead try pairing it with something clean, sleek and
not too bulky. I think our Solid Gold Huggie Earrings would be a perfect match. It's not too eccentric so the grape vine pendant won't loose it's spotlight,
but it also adds more elegance to your look without overpowering. "
