NAMEJS has become the legendary Latvian ring. Latvians and friends recognize each other in the world by this one particular piece of jewelry.
According to legend, Namejs was the leader of the Semigallian tribes during the early 13th century invasion of Latvia by German crusaders. He was one of the last warriors fighting against foreign occupation at that time. During the battles, Namejs was forced to retreat to Lithuania. Before leaving, Namejs gave his ring to his son with the hope that he will recognize his son upon return. Germans heard about this exchange and began to search Namejs' son; they wanted to capture the son and force the Christianity upon them. In an effort to protect Namejs and his son, nearly all Semigallian men and boys made and wore similar rings. As a result, Namejs became the most popular Latvian ring.
