Cross of Skane
With their unique longboats and superior weapons the Vikings in former times earned their fearless reputation for conquest and even today our weekdays are named after Nordic gods and goddesses.The civilization of the Vikings reached its height in Northern Europe from 700 to 1000 A.D. where the rough Scandinavian homelands of the Vikings very often generated ferocious people, who wanted to discover and conquer the world.
Although courage and loyalty were the most respected character attributes of a Viking, our Nordic ancestors also worshiped humor and the romantic complications of a great love. Most of our knowledge about the Vikings comes from Icelandic poetry. These so-called Eddas were written by gifted and highly honored poets - the Skalds - and told mythic tales which contained words of advice, prophecies and detailed family trees. Many stories are about the mighty one-eyed god Odin, living in Asgard in his big Hall Vallhalla, where dead heroes received their rewards in form of endless feasts and banquets.
The males of the Vikings wore bangles and pendants and their wives - who had a high position in their society and could even get a divorce from their husbands, if they didn't satisfy them - favored brooches, pendants and decorative fibulas. Viking artists and craftsmen worked with gold, copper, silver and brass and created a very special design were metal strands were intertwined and interweaved with animal-like figures.
Because of the big amounts of archaeological findings in treasure troves of the Viking age we today know a lot about the motifs of these people, which have also inspired this pendant: The Vikings buried vast amounts of jewelry and silver objects with their dead, because they believed that these things were very useful in the life after death in Valhalla.
Cross of Skane: Many Vikings converted to Christianity when they had to see that Christian missionaries were able to destroy their pagan sanctuaries without being prosecuted by the old gods. Thereupon the Vikings began to visit Christian outposts and so Nordic craftsmen became acquainted with the symbol of the cross and combined it with their Nordic concept of art. This cross of Skane is one example for such a piece of craft originating from the south of Sweden and symbolizes love and harmony.

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.
Already 1000 years ago gems and crystal were appreciated in Asia and especially in China because of their various powers. The Chinese art of healing primarily used jade and according to old legends pearls made of this gemstone have inspired the Chinese writing. The value of jade was judged that high that sometimes Chinese emperors were buried in an armor made of jade and green gems in general were thought to bestow luck upon their wearer. The gemstones were used alone (as tumbled stones or raw minerals) or were set into pieces of jewelry, sometimes also decorative items made of these precious stones were put up in the room.
The use of gemstones set in pieces of jewelry not only is attractive, but also especially helpful, since the crystals are worn close to the body this way. Thus the unique atomic structure of the respective gem and its special vibrational energy can directly influence the energy centers of the body and compensate its energetic imbalance. Emotional blocks can be eliminated and parts of the body with a low energy level can be stimulated. The vibrations of the precious stone are said to influence and harmonize the energy of body, mind and spirit in a positive way.
Especially the gemstones amber, amethyst, rose quartz, jade and lapis are often set in pieces of jewelry: As a sunny yellow tree resin amber is said to bring stability and cheerfulness to life. Amethyst is worn as an especially spiritual crystal in order to strengthen the inner balance. As the gem of love rose quartz is said to open the heart, and jade is deemed to be an especially valuable stone in Asia, because it is said to bring rest and peace to life. Finally lapis stands for strength and symbolizes deeper insight into difficulties and problems.

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.
