Collection: Jewellery Culture

Jewellery is more than just a form of adornment. It is a reflection of culture, history, identity, and creativity. Different jewellery cultures around the world have their own unique styles, materials, meanings, and traditions. Here are some of the most fascinating jewellery cultures and how they express themselves through their jewellery.

  • Gothic jewellery: Gothic jewellery is mainly embodied in a sense of rebellion, such as iron locks or nails, neckties or collars, and velvet ropes tied around the neck. Gothic jewellery also has many common elements, such as bats, demons, roses, skeletons, crosses, and so on. Gothic jewellery is influenced by the dark and mysterious aspects of Gothic literature, art, and music. It is worn by both men and women to show their individuality, attitude, and aesthetic preference.
  • Bohemian jewellery: Bohemian jewellery is inspired by the free-spirited and unconventional lifestyle of the bohemians. It is made from natural materials such as wood, leather, feathers, shells, stones, and beads. It often features colourful and eclectic designs that mix and match different styles and cultures. Bohemian jewellery is worn by both men and women to express their creativity, personality, and wanderlust.
  • Pride and LGBT+ jewellery: Pride and LGBT+ jewellery is a way of celebrating and supporting the diversity and equality of the LGBT+ community. It is made from various materials such as metal, silicone, enamel, resin, and crystal. It often features rainbow colours or symbols of different sexual orientations and gender identities, such as flags, hearts, triangles, letters, and animals. Pride and LGBT+ jewellery is worn by both men and women to show their pride, identity, solidarity, and love.
  • Chakra and meditation jewellery: Chakra and meditation jewellery is designed to help balance, heal, and activate the seven energy centres or chakras in the body. It is made from gemstones or crystals that correspond to each chakra’s colour and vibration. It often features motifs such as lotus flowers, om signs, mandalas, or Buddha heads. Chakra and meditation jewellery is worn by both men and women to enhance their spiritual practice, well-being, and awareness.
  • Tarot and astrology jewellery: Tarot and astrology jewellery is inspired by the ancient arts of divination and magic. It is made from materials such as silver (which is associated with the moon), gold (which is associated with the sun), copper (which is associated with Venus), tin (which is associated with Jupiter), and colourful stones such as turquoise (which is linked to communication), coral (which is linked to protection), opal (which is linked to intuition), and amber (which is linked to healing). Tarot and astrology jewellery often depicts symbols or images from tarot cards or astrological signs that represent different aspects of life such as personality, destiny, love, or fortune. Tarot and astrology jewellery is worn by both men and women to express their curiosity, wisdom, or faith.
