Avalon's Treasury - Jewelry, Gems & Minerals
In the center of this tiara the crescent moon of the Roman goddess Diana, symbolizing the absolute feminine principle, is shining - according to old legends she is said to have invented the course of time and stars. Like twinkling stars three high-quality glass beads have been placed on the left and right side of the crescent and in the center of the moon three large glass stones are sparkling and five additional beads are dangling below it. Overall this tiara displays a wonderful design, having the secrets of the night and the deeply feminine side of the moon as a motif - perfect if you are looking for an exceptional head jewelry and appreciate an intricate workmanship and an unusual look. This tiara is closed with an adjustable chain in the back thus fitting every head - the glass stones are available in the colors red, hematite-black and blue.
This piece of jewelry is made of silver-colored tombac embellished with high quality glass stones and furthermore carries glass beads. The name tombac probably is derived from the malaysian word "tumbago" meaning copper. It is used as an alternative to silver and gold when manufacturing jewelry and watches. Tombac is an especially precious alloy made of copper and zinc with a percentage of copper of at least 70% - this makes it a very durable and beautiful kind of brass. This piece of jewelry with its remarkable design furthermore was embellished with high quality glass stones and carries sparkling glass beads.

We were always fascinated by pieces of jewelry designed according to historical artwork and magical and other old motifs are a main area of our jewelry collection until today. Nowadays we all are surrounded by designs and motifs from all over the world which we usually choose according to visual aspects without considering the original meaning and symbolism of the various depictions. For sure the beauty of the different designs and materials is a good reason for selecting them but the affinity to a special piece of jewelry or art craft can be enhanced if one knows its deeper meaning and its origin. For this reason we always placed value on the accurate representation and information explaining the various pieces of jewelry in our collection.
Jewelry always had various functions which changed during the course of time: Because of the precious materials that were often used for its design it often was a valuable asset and sometime was even used as a currency. But especially in ancient cultures the spiritual meaning of a piece of jewelry was always important and the different motifs were symbols for the affiliation of its wearer to and his status in a social group. Furthermore jewelry can also serve a practical purpose like this is the case with safety pins, belt buckles and brooches.
Since jewelry is such a diverse cultural asset the meaning of a given piece can depend on the point of view and beliefs of its creator. For example many cultures developed pieces of jewelry showing to others whether its wearer is married or single: In our Western world these are the wedding rings while in African countries e.g. special bracelets or necklaces are worn for this purpose. Whether we are talking about weddings jewelry or talismans and amulets that were used for protection - often the decorations and materials determine the symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry.
Not only the used symbols and decorations differ strongly between the cultures - a huge number of different materials were also used in the course of time. In the beginnings especially shells and pearls of wood and bone were used, because these natural materials were readily available and could easily be processed. Later the precious metals silver and gold became more and more important and also the use of precious stones increased. Nowadays all possible materials are used to underline the meaning of a piece of jewelry even further thereby creating pendants and other jewelry that could not be designed using traditional materials.

Naturally we select fascinating designs from all cultures and epochs, so that everybody can find the piece of jewelry that appeals to him.
