Set with pendant and diadem
This set contains a Zotz pendant and a diadem showing this motif in its center: The high-quality glass crystals of the diadem are available in the combinations of black drops with a red crystal underneath the bat (as shown here) and vice versa (red drops with black crystal) and the diadem is closed with an adjustable chain in the back thus fitting every head. Zotz prefers to be concealed in the shadows of the darkness, thereby seeing everything and according to old belief is able to detect hidden dangers - he is the Vampire God of the Maya and the pieces of jewelry contained in this set show him while he silently glides through the dim nightfall on his search for blood.
The pendant contained in this set is made of pewter embellished with silver and one glass crystal. Pewter is a shiny, soft metal which is very malleable and has a good tarnish resistance. Artists and craftsmen used pewter quite early (dinnerware, sculptures, household articles, pewter figures, jewelry) and hence pewter jewelry has a long tradition. This pendant has been enhanced by adding a silver coating over the pewter core and was embellished with one prominent glass crystal.
The diadem is made of silver-colored tombac embellished with one high quality glass stone and furthermore carries glass beads. 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. It is used as an alternative to silver and gold when manufacturing jewelry and watches. The name probably is derived from the malaysian word "tumbago" meaning copper. This diadem with its remarkable design furthermore was embellished with one high quality glass stone 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.
