Enlightened Owl Baltic Amber Ring

CAD $135.00

In Slavic folklore, owls often symbolize wisdom and knowledge. They are seen as guardians of the forest and are respected by all creatures. Some stories even suggest that owls can predict the future or bring good luck. Not all tales about owls are positive. In some stories, owls are seen as omens of bad luck or even death. This is because owls are nocturnal creatures, and the night is often associated with danger and the unknown. But remember, these are just stories, so don’t be scared of our feathered friends!

One popular Slavic tale is about a wise old owl who helps a lost child find his way home. The owl uses its knowledge of the forest and its keen eyesight to guide the child safely back to his family. This story teaches us the importance of wisdom and kindness. Another tale tells of a mischievous owl who loves to play tricks on other animals. One day, the owl’s tricks go too far, and he learns a valuable lesson about respect and responsibility. This story reminds us that it’s important to treat others with kindness and respect.

Warm to the touch and often containing insect fragments it was believed to contain the very essence of life itself – the animating principle. It had associations with time, cycles and longevity. As it once was a living substance, it is related to spirit. Slavic tribes thought amber magical because of its warm feel, its lightness and luster. Some believed amber was the petrified tears of gods.

Amber amulets were worn as protection from diseases and against being killed in a battle. People believed that amber “pulled out” a disease from the body and “attracted” good luck – in the same way as it attracts small objects if you slightly rub it. It was believed that amber adornments averted misfortune, kept its owner safe from black magic, cast out devils, guarded one from the evil eye, brought luck in love, and made it’s owner stronger, cleverer, and extends general protection to the wearer.

As amber is often harvested from the sea it is also associated with fertility, life and catharsis. It is alleged to relieve depression, anxiety, and promotes joy. In Latvia, bands of amber rings were used in wedding ceremonies to ensure an eternal bond. Today, amber represents renewed fidelity in marriage. Some believed that eagles would place pieces of amber in their nests to protect them from snakes. Lumps of amber were blessed in church on the Epiphany and then used as incense. On Midsummer’s Night on the 23/24 of June (which is the shortest night of the year), and thought to have extraordinary activity of evil forces, people incensed their houses and cow-sheds to cast out evil spirits and so that witches would not harm their livestock.

A Lithuanian legend says that all the amber that is found in the Baltic sea was once part of the palace of the Queen of the Sea Juratė who fell in love with a fisherman. Perkūnas destroyed her amber palace to punish her for indiscretion and the bits of rubble wash up on the shore even today. In another version, Perkūnas killed her lover, Kastytis and she mourns him to this day, her teardrops are amber.
