Freyja Sphynx Cat 925 Sterling Silver Stud Earrings
Freya is the most prominent of the Vanir Gods, a goddess associated with domesticity, womanhood, sorcery, magic, and female sexuality as well with war and death. It was said that after a battle, Freya would lead a band of Valkyries to gather one half of the worthy fallen warriors to her hall, Folkvang, while the other half went to Odin, God of wisdom and war.
Freya chooses her warriors while riding her flying chariot, which is pulled by two large gray cats named Bygul and Trjegul, who were given to her by Thor.
It was a tradition in the Viking culture to give a kitten (or more) to the newly wed, symbolizing the blessings of Freya for the couple.
In Norse art or jewelry, the symbol or motif of the cat is meant to denote the blessing of Freya: love and desire, abundance and beauty, valor and the afterlife, music and poetry, magic and wisdom.
The earrings are made of 925 Sterling Silver.
