Shield of Four Directions

Pendant

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.
Celtic art made its way from England and Ireland to Europe in the years from 100 B.C. to 900 A.D. 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 of Celtic art therefore 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.
The Welsh Goddess of Horses Rhiannon was especially worshipped by the Celts - her stories can be found in the medieval collection of legends Mabinogion. According to ancient belief the blessings of Rhiannon are said to grant fertility and abundance. Since horses were an important part of the Celtic culture the name of the goddess Rhiannon is derived from Rigantona meaning "The Great High Queen".
This piece of jewelry was inspired by Celtic art and magic and is dedicated to the legends of Rhiannon - it therefore possesses qualities that were admired by the ancient Celts and that they wanted to attract into their lifes by wearing similar charms and talismans. Jewelry of this collection therefore can enrich and transform our life since the Celtic magic of the goddess Rhiannon is potent until today.

About us

AvalonsTreasury.com: Arrow, Mist (Page: Shield of Four Directions) [136 x 22 px]
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.
