Ileana's fascination with nature and symbolism inspired her to develop her eponymous best-selling Snake Collection, now considered amongst her classics. Working in her signature aesthetic and her unique interpretation of beauty, Ileanaâ€™s most recent addition to the range is the Berus ring. A unique piece from this collection created in organic form, seamlessly combining the natural strength of the beast with Ileanaâ€™s refined and sensual interpretation of it.
In religion, mythology, and literature, serpents and snakes represent fertility or a creative life force. As snakes shed their skin through molting, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. Serpents are represented as potent guardians of temples and other sacred spaces.
