Not the brand but the ring. I came across Aliki Stroumpouli via instagram a few weeks ago and this contemporary ring instantly got me.
The Hermes ring is a well-chosen name for this design as the designer herself is Greek and you clearly can see the influences in the design. The wings give the design that mythological touch.

But who is Hermes?
As you might guess, Hermes is known in the Greek mythology.
Hermes, son of Zeus and the Pleiad Maia, is the god of transitions and boundaries.
He is quick and cunning, and moves freely between the worlds of the mortal and divine, as emissary and messenger of the gods, intercessor between mortals and the divine, and conductor of souls into the afterlife.
He also is a protector and patron of travelers, herdsmen, thieves, orators and also wit, literature and poets, athletics and sports, invention and trade.
In some myths he is a trickster, and outwits other gods for his own satisfaction or the sake of humankind.
