PENDANT NAMEJS

56.00 44.80

“According to legend, Namejs was the leader of the Semigallian tribes during the early 13th century invasion of Latvia by German crusaders. He was one of the last warriors fighting against foreign occupation at that time. During the battles, Namejs was forced to retreat to Lithuania. Before leaving, Namejs gave his ring to his son with the hope that his son will recognize him upon return. Germans heard about this exchange and began a search for Namejs’ son; they wanted to capture the boy and force him to profess Christianity. In an effort to protect Namejs and his son, nearly all Semigallian boys and men made and wore similar rings. As a result, Namejs became the most popular Latvian ring. Latvian people and friends recognize each other around the world by wearing this particular design. The four close braids in the design express the solidarity of Latvian nation.”
