Ring of Heavens
The pieces of this jewelry collection celebrate our Nordic ancestors that were known for their legendary delight in adventure, poetry and art. The design of this jewelry reflects the special style of these ancient people of Northern Europe: The star in the center of the pendant "Ring of Heavens" has been inspired by old Viking motives. Its eight spikes are symbolizing the eight Winds of the World blowing over the eight outer worlds of Nordic belief: Through this star in the center Muspelheim (the world of fire), Niflheim (the world of ice), Asgard (the heavenly upperworld), Hel (the dark underworld), Alfheim (the world of light), Svartálfaheimr (the world of shadows), Vanaheimr (the world of peace) and Jötunheimr (the world of destruction) are joined together. And straight in this center lies Midgard, the world of mankind, where everything is possible. According to Nordic belief this pendant improves leadership abilities and boosts progress in life.
This pendant is made of pewter embellished with silver and one glass crystal. Artists and craftsmen used pewter quite early (dinnerware, sculptures, household articles, pewter figures, jewelry) and hence pewter jewelry has a long tradition. After all pewter is a shiny, soft metal which is very malleable and has a good tarnish resistance. This piece of jewelry has been enhanced by adding a silver coating over the pewter core and was embellished with one prominent glass crystal.
This jewelry is also available in gold

A main focus of our jewelry collections are magic symbols which are made according to historical artwork. Although a lot of people (like us) appreciate the beauty of the different designs and used materials, only few think about the deeper symbolism of these pieces of jewelry. In our modern world we see so a many different beautiful and decorative items that we usually only enjoy their beauty without considering the deeper meaning or the origin of the used motives and without knowing for what reason these items were formerly used. In our online shop we want to give answers to these questions by offering accurate background knowledge and additional information about every piece of jewelry in our collection.
Since the beginning of mankind jewelry served several different purposes. Already before the invention of money it was for example used as a kind of currency, as a status symbol or as a valuable asset that even could be passed on to future generations. Many pieces of jewelry also had a functional purpose like it is the case with fastenings for clothes, safety pins and belt buckles. However, at a more spiritual level the jewelry also had a symbolic meaning, showed the affiliation to and the status in a social group, and was worn for the protection from evil or simply to show one's own taste.
On account of these many different purposes the meaning of single pieces of jewelry can be very different and depends on the belief and the point of view of the respective manufacturer. In some cultures, e.g., bracelets were used as wedding jewelry, like the wedding rings of today, in other societies necklaces served the same purpose. The symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry often cannot only be found in the piece itself, but also in its decorations or the used materials. In some cultures it is usual to give pieces of jewelry as a gift at certain important times in life which should emphasize the symbolic meaning of these events with the help of their decorations. These pieces were then often worn as amulets or talismans and were believed to protect and support its wearer during this new situation in life.
Besides the various symbols and designs different cultures use for their pieces of jewelry also a variety of materials are deployed in jewelry production. At the beginning of mankind primarily pearls made of wood and bones and shells were crafted to pendants, since these rather soft materials could easily be processed and were readily available. Later on especially precious metals like gold and silver and various gems were used for valuable jewelry. Today the selection of materials available for the production of jewelry is especially large and various.
