Jelling Band with raised rims
From the ancient celtic traditions and myths, we get the belief that the serpent is a symbol of good luck. In Denmark, called the "Jelling" Band, this design was used on the finger ring to call upon this power of good fortune, to invoke the serpent's power bringing wisdom, power, and the strength of the ancients to bless a union such as a marriage. Denmark, indeed has no reptiles of this sort, and to some this may be seen as good luck, but look deeper into this legend and an ancient archetype emerges that is revered throughout the world, especially by ancient earth religions as a symbol of a creature that has deep roots with mother earth, seen by the Hopi as a messenger between Humankind and that of the Spirit World.
