St Dwynwen - Patron Saint of Lovers Necklace - Gold
Here's one for the Lovers...
Meet St Dwynwen, the patron saint of lovers (or the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine!) St Dwynwen lived during the 5th century, she fell in love with a prince but her father had already arranged for her to marry someone else. (Oh No!)
Dwynwen was so upset that she could not marry her chosen man she begged to forget about him altogether. Later she fell asleep and was visited by an angel with a potion designed to erase all memory of her prince.
After this, she was granted 3 wishes. One of wish was to be rid of all men for life and that she was granted. After being passionately in love, St Dwynwen never married.
She later founded a convent in Wales where a well named after her became a place of pilgrimage. Visitors to the well believed that the sacred fish & eels that lived in the well could foretell whether or not their relationship would be a happy one!
Remains of Dwynwen's church can still be seen today.
And so today we wear the Saint Dwynwen Pendant as an ode to undying Love & Happy Relationships, something we wish upon each & every human walking this magical planet.
