Midsummer is one of our oldest celebrations, and is also a popular day for getting married. Since ancient times, people have honoured the summer solstice - the longest day and shortest night of the year - with ritual fires and flowers as a sign of rebirth and new life. In the Norse mythology, Freya is the goddess of love and fertility, and also the patroness of marriage.
This year’s theme “From celebration to celebration” is really exciting. I wanted to create an engraved diamond ring that reflects both ancient traditions as well as modern time summer parties. The myths about the goddess of love and fertility have given me great inspiration to the golden Freya-ring. Its diamonds and decorative flower-engravings symbolize both old and new celebrations and traditions of Midsummer.
In the rules of the competition was mentioned that the jury will look at both the story as well as the aesthetics and usability of the ring; Freya is hand-made to shine and last through all kinds of celebrations.
Our Freya-collection is one of the finalists in the competition Vuoden koru 2021 (Jewellery of the Year 2021)!
All the finalists will be exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art Emma in November, when also the voting will begin.
