The Gallant pendant is modeled on a Sami belt ring found in the Lautiosaari district of Kemi, Finland. The Sami people hung these rings from their belts and attached small, portable utensils to them. Children received their first ring as a christening gift, to ward off evil, and more rings followed as they grew up. Women in particular built up a clicking collection to display their wealth and status. The pendant’s motif is ancient and widespread – a cat biting its own tail. The Kemi belt ring probably travelled north along Eastern trade routes, eventually arriving in the Sami region with Karelian merchants hundreds of years ago.
