Our Kingfisher Amber and Turquoise Drop Earrings.
It is said that only the righteous can catch a glimpse of the Kingfisher.
Aristotle Claimed that the Kingfisher made it’s nest on the sea in a period of Winter calm. This association with calm weather means the Kingfisher is thought to be able to ward off thunder. Amulets of Kingfishers have been kept for centuries for good fortune.
The Greek name for Kingfisher is ‘Halcyon’ which is where we get the expression ‘Halcyon Days’. In Ancient Greek legend, the Gods created calm weather for the Kingfisher to nest.
It was said that Kingfishers built their nests on a raft of fish bones and, having laid their eggs, they set the nest afloat on the Mediterranean sea and incubated the eggs for seven days before and after the winter solstice.
The Kingfisher represents Freedom , Courage, Adventure and Balance
