Hounds of Cúchulainn

Set with pendant and ear hooks

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.

About us

AvalonsTreasury.com: Arrow, Mist (Page: Hounds of Cúchulainn) [136 x 22 px]
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.
 
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.
 
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.
