Through many religions and cultures across the world, symbolic jewelry is used to express faith or to bring protection and good fortune. But you don't have to subscribe to certain beliefs to wear these fascinating icons. Even so, these emblems have a rich history which is worth exploring. Here are some popular choices:
The Evil Eye is a supposed curse that's transmitted through a malicious stare, whether intentional or unintentional. Evil Eye amulets were created to block this curse from happening. Many people wear Evil Eye pendants and bracelets as an emblem of protection or simply as an on-trend fashion statement. Another protective symbol is the hamsa hand. Originating from paganism, the hamsa is a right-hand symbol often presented with an Evil Eye on the palm. Many believe that wearing a hamsa necklace or bracelet will ward off evil and bring protection and happiness to its wearer.
Our symbol jewelry collection also features a variety of inspirational icons. We have Chinese good luck symbols as well as charms that spell out "believe" or "dream". One of our most iconic jewelry emblems is the peace sign. This universal symbol of peace originates with the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. The sign was cleverly inspired by Flag semaphore, which is a communication system that uses flag waving and positioning. The vertical line is the semaphore signal for (nuclear) and the downward V-shape means (disarmament). The peace sign was soon after adopted as the icon for the American counterculture movement during the Vietnam War. Since then, it has taken off in fashion and jewelry.
Another popular motif in this assortment of meaningful jewelry is the infinity symbol. Originally used in mathematics, this sideways figure-eight represents a possible infinity in an equation. Used by modern mystics for spiritual purposes, infinity symbol jewelry can represent the idea of eternity or signify something that is long-lasting. Also numerical and mystical in nature, Jewish chai symbol pendants represent the Hebrew word for "life" and the number 18. This is believed to have profound spiritual significance and bring forth good omens.
Used in religion, philosophy, mathematics and fashion, symbol jewelry offers a beautiful way to express yourself. Choose amulets and charms in gold and sterling silver. Or opt for emblem jewelry with sparkly diamonds or gemstones.
