Northern Star


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.
Most of our knowledge about the Vikings comes from Icelandic poetry. 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. 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. 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.
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.
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. Because of the big amounts of archaeological findings in these treasure troves today we know a lot about the motifs of the Viking era, which have also inspired this pendant.

About us Arrow, Mist (Page: Northern Star) [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.
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.
Also the piece of jewelry on this page http://www.aval
shows a unique combination of material and symbolism. This is the information about our website and this page if you want to point to it:
  • Website: Our short information is "Webshop for Jewelry"
  • Page: The ornament of this pendant symbolizes the Northern Star granting goal-directedne
    ss and permanence.
We feel committed to the historical development of jewelry and are especially interested in the meaning of old symbols and pieces of jewelry - therefore we try to constantly extend our range of jewelry with pieces that are unique in their beauty and meaning. Naturally we select fascinating designs from all cultures and epochs, so that everybody can find the piece of jewelry that appeals to him.
