In the middle ages in Scandinavia, keys were worn by women as talismans of their own power and autonomy. Staking their claim in the world, this practice created the image of a woman who is the gatekeeper of her own domain, controlling access to both her home, her property, and her heart. We cast this piece from an antique charm to act as a symbol of a self-reliant and independent woman, one who revels in her worth and knows that she alone will be the one to unlock her freedom.

  • 14k recycled yellow gold

The avata key necklace was given its name from the Finnish word for “unlock.” The inspiration for this gold necklace for women came from a tradition in Scandinavia in the Middle Ages where a woman would wear a key from her belt as a symbol of her power and propriety. The key was worn proudly by women and not as a mere accessory, but as a signifier of a woman’s ability to control her life and happiness, and more figuratively her ability to “unlock” her independence. The avata key necklace is a gold necklace for women who embrace their own self-worth and want to celebrate the wisdom that comes with knowing your own potential. This gold necklace is also made from the cast of an antique charm, meaning that we took a shape rich with history and heritage and used it to make these perfect dainty necklaces. 

As a symbol in the Scandinavian Middle Ages, the key is also associated with the goddess Freyja who wore keys as a representation of her domain. This ties the centuries-long legacy of keys being connected to themes of female leadership and the role of matriarch. As the matriarch of the family would often be the one to hold the keys, we chose this charm for this gold key necklace as a perfect gift for all the mamas in our lives who keep and watch over us even when we’re far from home. The avata key necklace makes a perfect mother’s day present or maternity gift, and also can be given to those celebrating a liberating milestone such as a graduation gift.
