Hounds of Cúchulainn
The most we know about the Celts comes from their objects of art they left behind - cave paintings, items consisting of metal and in rare cases famous writings like the Book of Kells tell about a big culture. After all the famous Celts that were the legendary ancestors of the Englishmen passed on most of their stories and myths only by oral tradition, so that only pieces of their legends and tales lasted till today.
For the Celts the material and the spiritual world were merging seamlessly, because they saw no difference between natural and supernatural reality and magic was an inherent part of every day life. The most popular motives in Celtic art were animals, spirals, knots, key patterns and intertwined figures, all symbols of Celtic religion and their belief in magic, unity, eternity and the endless cycle of life, death and rebirth. Celtic art finally made its way from England and Ireland to Europe in the years from 100 B.C. to 900 A.D.
The Welsh Goddess of Horses Rhiannon was especially worshipped by the Celts and according to ancient belief Rhiannon is said to grant fertility and abundance. Horses were an important part of the Celtic culture and therefore the name of the goddess Rhiannon is derived from Rigantona meaning "The Great High Queen". Stories about Rhiannon can be found in the medieval collection of legends Mabinogion.
This piece of jewelry was inspired by Celtic art and magic and is dedicated to the legends of Rhiannon - jewelry of this collection therefore can enrich and transform our life since the Celtic magic of the goddess is potent until today. This piece of jewelry possesses qualities that were admired by the ancient Celts and that they wanted to attract into their lifes by wearing similar charms and talismans.
Hounds of Cúchulainn: Cúchulainn's name means Hound of Culann, since the first deed of this Irish hero in his early youth was to kill the invincible hound of the smith Culann. The hounds shown on this ear hooks were the loyal companions of this Irish hero. Cúchulainn was known as the guardian of the Celtic land and according to old belief the depiction of his hounds is said to aid its wearer in achieving his goals.

Here you find many pieces of jewelry that not only were manufactured according to historical and magical artwork but where you can also select the gemstone that is to be set into the piece. Many people are convinced that minerals and precious stones with their vibrational energies exert a positive effect on body, mind and spirit. This way a piece of jewelry where you personally select your gemstone can have a balancing and harmonizing power.
Already 1000 years ago gems and crystal were appreciated in Asia and especially in China because of their various powers. The Chinese art of healing primarily used jade and according to old legends pearls made of this gemstone have inspired the Chinese writing. The value of jade was judged that high that sometimes Chinese emperors were buried in an armor made of jade and green gems in general were thought to bestow luck upon their wearer. The gemstones were used alone (as tumbled stones or raw minerals) or were set into pieces of jewelry, sometimes also decorative items made of these precious stones were put up in the room.
It is often suggested to use minerals and precious stones near to one's body so that their vibrational energies can exert an intense influence on us. Therefore jewelry that is set with gemstones is especially handy: It not only is visually appealing but usually will be worn directly on the skin or at least on the clothes. According to old belief this way an energetic imbalance of the body can be harmonized and body, mind and spirit are balanced - many people also appreciate the balancing and calming effect of "their" own very personal gemstones.
Especially the gemstones amber, amethyst, rose quartz, jade and lapis are often set in pieces of jewelry: As a sunny yellow tree resin amber is said to bring stability and cheerfulness to life. Amethyst is worn as an especially spiritual crystal in order to strengthen the inner balance. As the gem of love rose quartz is said to open the heart, and jade is deemed to be an especially valuable stone in Asia, because it is said to bring rest and peace to life. Finally lapis stands for strength and symbolizes deeper insight into difficulties and problems.

The energetic effect of minerals and gemstones is deemed to be unproven by modern science and therefore it is often said that the positive effects of gem jewelry are only based on the imagination of its wearer. Although it is true that most of the effects that are traditionally passed down for the various gemstones are not scientifically validated there are energetic effects of crystals that are undisputed: For example gemstones exist that can store energy and release it in the dark or if one rubs over their surface. Therefore many remains to be discovered and personally experienced about minerals and gems and therefore we decided to offer a broad range of pieces of jewelry where our customers can choose the gemstone to be set in: This way everybody can find his jewelry with his personal favourite stone and experience what the world of gemstones and minerals has to offer.
