what’s so special about symbolic jewelry?

symbolic jewelry holds a specific meaning or significance— sometimes, you’ll connect to a piece of jewelry because of its meaning, and others will take on meaning as you wear it. either way, it is a beautiful way to express your love that can be worn close to the heart. these pieces transcend passing trends and become lifelong fixtures in your jewelry collection. 

you probably already have a piece of symbolic jewelry: an engagement ring or wedding ring; heirloom jewelry from a family member; or the jewelry you got to mark a milestone such as a graduation or a birthday. these are the pieces that tell our stories, all our most precious moments immortalized in gold.

symbolic birthstone jewelry

one of the most popular forms of symbolic jewelry is the birthstone. birthstones have a long history and are said to have mystical powers, giving your gift an extra layer of meaning. giving a piece of jewelry with a birthstone that corresponds to the person's birth month is a way to show that you put thought into their gift and also hold a special meaning—- but this is not the only way our birthstone charms can add meaning to a gift. 

add a serendipity charm to mark milestones, memories, and moments: first dates, anniversaries, and favourite memories can all be commemorated with this sweet and understated detail. if you met your partner in september, add a sapphire serendipity charm to commemorate the moment your paths crossed. did you get engaged on valentine’s day? mark the moment with an amethyst serendipity charm

as your love progresses, you can keep marking your moments with new charms— get creative, the possibilities are endless.

symbolic custom jewelry engraving

another popular form of symbolic jewelry is jewelry with an engraved initial or message. engraving a special message, initial, or date on a piece of jewelry makes it unique, personal, and meaningful. it could be a reminder of a special event, a heartfelt quote, or even a simple “i love you”. a piece of engraved jewelry is a perfect gift for occasions such as anniversaries and birthdays because it shows how much thought went into your gift— making your special someone feel extra special.
