Shield of Four Directions
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.
Shield of Four Directions: Each twisted arm of this pendant stands for one of the four directions of the compass (North, South, East and West), one of the four mystic attributes (Life, Light, Love and Justice) and one of the four elements (Earth, Fire, Water and Air). This shield combines all of these qualities in perfect harmony and is therefore said to bring love and luck into the life of its wearer.

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.
The power of precious stones and crystals was already known to the old Egyptians and many cultures used the vibrational energy of gemstones to influence body, mind and spirit in a positive way. For this purpose the gems can be used as tumbled stones or set in pieces of jewelry, larger mineral specimens are often also put up in order to harmonize a room or to be used as a mediation stone for finding the own inner center. All of these forms of using minerals and precious stones are known since the beginning of mankind and are practiced since thousands of years by many cultures.
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.
Amongst others the precious stones citrine, rock crystal, black tourmaline, carnelian and onyx are used often and are also popular as stones to be set in pendants and necklaces. Citrine symbolizes individuality, self-assurance and optimism, while rock crystal stands for clarity of feelings and during problems in daily life. Black tourmaline symbolizes the defence against feelings like mistrust, envy and jealousy and carnelian stands for shared activities and for helpfulness, while black onyx symbolizes energy, self-assurance and strength.

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.
