Dictionary Terms Explained
Thor was the Norse storm-god who was famous for having a hammer made by a dwarf called Sindri. Viking mythology states that blows with Thor's hammer caused thunder and lightning, and when Thor threw it at enemies to kill them, it always came back.
Although a rather destructive tale, the struggle of good over evil is prevalent. Whilst some regard the symbol as representative of power, others see it as symbolic of life and the underlying elemental forces of nature (thunder and lightning). Emblems of Thor's hammer became popular as religious amulets during the Viking times.
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.
