1. GIRLS LOVE PEARLS
Pearls have been mesmerizing people from the time they were discovered (5th Century B.C.) until the present day. They are associated with timelessness, and are the definitive image of intelligence and class. The luminous beauty of the pearl has long been associated with the moon, and its energy has always been profoundly feminine. Esteemed by many for their calming effects, pearls represent peacefulness, while bringing strength to valuable relationships and convey a feeling of safety.
And for the lovers out there- wearing pearls is said to attract the Gemini man, as pearls are the birthstone for June. They are also the gift for the 3rd and 30th wedding anniversaries.
2. CHAIN-LINK LOVE
Since ancient times, the chain has enjoyed a coveted place in jewelry. It represents eternal love and all the other good stuff about human connection: the eternity of the circle linked, without beginning or end, to other circles. The classic chain is used in a multitude of Jewelry styles, but you may have noticed a new trend being sported by all the effortlessly chic fashionistas…
Chunky chains! Whether it’s a necklace, bracelet, or even a ring, chunky chain jewelry has become a staple piece for the fashion forward. Why does it catch our eye? Perhaps it’s because that extra weight of gold sends a statement of luxury, while requiring no effort to mix or match. You can dress it up or down, from evening wear to lounge wear, and maintain that luxury air to your ensemble. Wearing a luxe statement piece like chunky chain necklace or bracelet says “this girl knows her worth and isn’t afraid to flaunt it”. And you don’t have to break the bank to afford it.
