"Namej’s ring.

Namejs, The Chief of Zemgaļi (Zemgale – one of Latvian province) tribe, was one of the last one who resisted German crusaders (back in 13th century). After long and heavy battles he still had to retreat to Lithuania.

The Legend says, that before he left, he gave his son a ring to recognize him after return. The Crusaders found it out and started to search for Namej’s son to capture him and force Namejs to turn to Christianity. At that moment many of tribe’s men started to wear the same looking ring - to protect their Chief and his son.

Since then The Ring has become one of the most common Latvian jewelry. The Ring’s twine is the symbol of how united Latvians are. It also serves as recognition sign for Latvians all over the world.”
