What is Symbolic Jewellery?
Symbolism was once the only way that ancient man could understand the world and make sense of complex situations. Before the development of scientific theory, religious and spiritual symbols were crucial for understanding life and creation.
Symbolic spiritual jewellery is very popular across the world due to its significance in people’s lives associated to their faith, religious and spiritual beliefs. Symbolic jewellery is valued for its spiritual, therapeutic and aesthetic qualities as well the meaning behind each unique piece.
In all walks of life, in every corner of the world, it’s our faith in a “ higher power” or our version of “God” that carries us through life’s challenges – protecting and guiding us on the right path.
Regardless of your religion, spiritual, new age or universal beliefs, there is a deep thread of similarity shared by all. That’s why symbolic jewellery is so powerful and meaningful, especially when worn with intention – particularly in a day and age where we are reclaiming ancient knowledge and wisdom and coming back to the love within ourselves.
Read More Traditionally aside from the beautiful aesthetics, jewellery represented wealth and status in society. In some cultures, and religions, symbolic jewellery was bestowed for healing and protection of the wearer. For example, people wear wedding rings and engagement rings as a symbol of their commitment and love. For Catholics rosemary beads and crucifix symbolize divine protection of God by wearing them. Some use malas and mandalas to chant mantras and offer prayers, while others simply wear symbolic spiritual jewellery to stay connected with their God (the universe, higher power, creator – whatever that means to you). Symbolic jewellery helps attune us to restore the balance of energy within the body and to flush out the accumulation of negative energy, aligning the body with the frequencies held within the symbol’s ancient vibration. By letting ourselves become open to the frequencies that the symbolic jewellery invokes, we awaken the energy centres in our bodies – our chakras. The body then responds to the energy and uses it for healing. The process becomes even more powerful when intentions and mantra are incorporated.
