Dictionary Terms Explained
Star of David
- Balance, knowledge
The Star of David is made up of two triangles, one representing spirit and one representing matter. These two triangles when overlaid make a six-pointed star that is referred to as the Star of David. As a symbol it is good to hold when you want to take divine will (spirit) and integrate it more into your life (matter). It is also a symbol of hope.
In Christianity and Judaism, a triangle is often used as a symbol for God and the holy trinity, and in magic it was seen as representing the element fire (with a downward meaning water). When upright and downward triangles are put together, they form the Star of David and symbolize balance and knowledge.
- Bridge between supernatural and natural worlds, hope, equality
The rainbow, featuring an arc of seven colours (red, orange, yellow, green, battle, indigo and violet), is typically regarded as a bridging symbol - bringing together the supernatural and natural worlds. The arc of the rainbow touching the surface of the earth is seen as representing hope, treasure and fertility, as the familiar phrase, 'a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow' emphasizes.
The symbol has featured widely in different cultures, each adding their own unique meaning. In Greek myths, it was Iris the rainbow goddess who conveyed messages to earth from Zeus and Hera. In Norse legends, a rainbow representing the bridge Byfrost, and a similar notion was used in Japan for the seven-coloured staircase Buddha comes down when returning from heaven. The rainbow features in Christianity, too, notably during the great flood when a rainbow appeared above Noah's ark.
Peter Stone Jewellery
- High quality jewellery manufacturer
The Peter Stone Company purchases raw silver and produces their own true .925 sterling silver alloy in their own factory. All rings are cast to size and craftsmen cut and inlay each stone for a perfect fit. Every piece of jewellery created is hand polished not tumble polished, which leads to a high quality finish that is noticeably different.
Peter Koslowski had been working on merchant ships since 1983 while living in Sri Lanka and was fortunate to be exposed to an abundance of precious stones and he began to purchase and trade them, as well as silver. During this period he also studied gemology and jewellery making in a number of countries. This then lead to the founding of the Peter Stone Company in 1992 in Bangkok, Thailand, where he still resides.
