Knot of Four Seasons
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.
Knot of Four Seasons: This charm is said to protect its wearer against harm and to sustain health. Its knot symbolizes the change of the four seasons which was experienced by the Celts as a kind of journey which kept repeating till eternity: After all every aspect of the old Celtic world was dominated by spring, summer, autumn and winter ranging from agriculture to hunt.

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.

It is often said that the power of gemstones and crystals only exists in the mind of people and hence, only the imagination of the wearer causes the positive effects of the precious stones. Although there really is no scientific evidence for the effectiveness of gems, the energetic effects of minerals and crystals are in fact proven like e.g. that some crystals deliver energy if pressure is applied to them - therefore, the energy-storing properties of gemstones can be seen as scientifically established. For this and other reasons many people are convinced of the positive effects of precious stones and crystals and by offering a broad range of gem jewelry and tumbled stones we try to provide our customers the opportunity to test and to get to know the different vibrational qualities of the various gems.
