Gemstones with a tree of life
Tree of life necklace pendants
Our pendants consist of a tree of life with a gemstone in it. The Celtic word for 'oak' is 'daur', where the word 'door' comes from. The tree of life was seen as a door to other worlds. In many cultures, the tree of life plays an important role. Often in different forms and meanings, but with similar symbolic alue.
Symbol for connection
The tree of life has roots that reach deep into the soil, so that it is strongly anchored in the Earth. The leaves and branches extend to the sky and the Sun for the energy that is converted into food. The tree of life means that you are not an island, but are deeply connected to the world around you and depend on it for your ability to grow and thrive.
Symbol for family and the course of life
The tree of life symbolises generations. A tree sprouts from a seed, grows branches, sees how far it can go and then creates a new fruit that gives life to the next generation, to start over. When the trees are young, they almost all look the same, but as they get older, they resist storms and are changed by the forces of wind and water. Their branches may break and grow back in a different direction, or the soil underneath will wear away, giving them even stronger roots to hold on to. Over time they become very unique and beautiful in their eccentricity and idiosyncrasies. They have been shaped into fascinating, intriguing individuals who have endured hardships and broad life experiences and have made us who we are.
