What Your Jewellery Says About You: Meaning Behind the Metal

Have you ever wondered what your choice of jewellery says about you?

Chanel famously said that it was wise to look in the mirror and remove one accessory before leaving the house – but if styled right, your jewellery can accentuate and lift your outfit, while conveying a subtle yet powerful message at the same time.

It’s all about choosing the right style for you – and one style that has proven popular for many years now is the simple feather.

A feather has multiple meanings. It represents love, protection from evil and new beginnings. The feather symbol also stands for truth, peace and light. Some believe that feathers provide a link to the divine, or a connection or reflection of a passed loved one.

For all these reasons, feather jewellery items are always on-trend….. and versatile.

Being relatively small in size, a silver or gold feather pendant can be worn as a minimalist pendant for a smart contemporary look – or mixed with other necklaces of varying metals and styles for a bohemian, casual style.

A feather bangle meanwhile, can be worn loose around the wrist, or, being adjustable, can be worn on the upper arm in a Grecian style.

Feather shapes lend themselves very well to rings: a dual plume style wraps around a finger or thumb with the tips of the two feathers meeting or reaching towards each other, offering a flexible and modern twist on a classic design.

FIYAH creates feather jewellery for customers all over the world, many of whom want to commemorate a loved one. Its collections exude honesty and compassion.

The right kind of necklace can add a touch of glamour to a casual tee, while well-chosen bracelet and ring can bring class to an old cardigan. 

But choosing jewellery with meaning – that adds so much more.
