My husband bought me some beautiful earrings and a ring from your website for Christmas. I just love them! And the great thing is that although the Authentic Wedding Ring is actually too big for my ring finger, it fits my middle finger perfectly and looks beautiful. So he doesn’t have to return it to you. Thank you for the beautiful jewellery. Your website is amazing.
With very best wishes,
Thank you, such speedy service and the earrings were beautiful. I am definitely bookmarking your website. Thanks again, you made my mom’s Christmas wonderful.
The bolo tie arrived and it is absolutely gorgeous! You can count on my repeat business! Happy Holidays, Melanie

In the Native American culture, feathers are a symbol of prayers, the source of ideas and when worn, a mark of honor. Eagle feathers particularly represent honor and a connection with the Creator.
It is difficult to pin point one particular meaning of feathers for the Native Americans as hundreds of tribes have evolved in their beliefs and rituals over hundreds of years.
Legend has it from the Hopi Indians that four turkey feathers were used in symbolic placements and rituals. The four turkey represented the wilderness of the earth and the four winds. Together the four feathers were symbolic that the Earth is a wilderness that no man can control.
More commonly, the higher-minded, wiser souls and noblemen of the Sioux Tribe wore 28 feathers in the headdress in crowning rituals. The 28 feathers were sacred in representing the 28 days of the Moon's cycle. The buffalo which is also sacred to the Sioux Tribe also has 28 ribs. Of common knowledge, the eagle is a sacred symbol and 12 eagle feathers were used in ceremonies honoring the 12 months of the year as well as the 12 symbolic rays of the Sun.
Today's modern feather jewelry is a testimony to the sacred meaning of the feathers in the in the American Indian culture.
