This stunning design is based on a Latvian legend dating back to the 13th century. Namejs was the leader of one of the Semigallian tribe, and led his people into battle against German crusaders. Although the legend has different variations, all agree that Namejs had a ring of this design, which was copied and given to his supporters after Namejs had to retreat into Lithuania, so that they could identify themselves. In the present day, Latvians and friends of Latvia wear jewellery of this design to show their solidarity with the Latvian people.
This bangle is handmade from sterling silver, and comes in it’s own linen gift pouch.
