Celtic Birth Charms: 02 - Imbolc
The Celts settled in Europe from 800 B.C. to 900 A.D. and their civilization has been based on the belief in a magically animated earth and its relation to the own clan or tribe. In regard to this they were early conservationists, because they strongly believed that every part of the scenery holds its own life and should be considered as holy.
Birthdays had a very important meaning because many Celtic legends referred to the birth of deities and heroes and the Celts were convinced that they shared the supernatural powers of these mythological beings if they had the luck to be born on their birthday. The cycle of agriculture was vital for their culture too and the festivals which were celebrated during the year were especially important to those who were born shortly before a certain festive day because they took a leading role in this particular festival. In their magic system the darkness of night brought the Celts closer to the mysterious Otherworld, where gods, goddesses, fairies and the dead exist. The natural attributes being inherent in a certain season, were respected by the Celts just as much as they observed which plants, animals and weather conditions were connected with a certain period because in that way they defined the special abilities of newborn children and predicted the future.
Magic birth pendants were worn by the Celts to influence destiny and to emphasize personal traits, just as astrological jewelry is used by a lot of people today. And that's why the Celtic birth charms of this collection can either be worn to stress your own Celtic birthday, or if another pendant is chosen, to manifest its spirit within you.
Imbolc: People whose birthday falls between the 23rd of January and the 13th of February are born under the Celtic sign of the fire goddess Brigid. Brigid was the most beloved goddess of the Celts and was renamed during christianization to St. Brigid of Ireland. Imbolc was the festival of Brigid and on this day the Celts also celebrated the return of the sunlight after the long cold winter. This festival was christianized too and is called Candlemas today. Brigid was the patron saint of the fine arts and goddess of inspiration. People born under the sign of Imbolc also possess a very distinct inner beauty, blossoming in the white of winter just like a little snowdrop, the holy plant of Brigid.

A main focus of our jewelry collections are pieces of jewelry made according to old historical and magical artwork where you can chose the gemstone most suited to your own, personal wants and needs. In doing so you can benefit from the positive effects of the different precious stones in order to harmonize body, mind and spirit and to eliminate emotional blocks. A piece of jewelry personalized this way furthermore can focus and enhance balancing energy.
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.
