Jewellery with Meaning

Jewellery with Meaning  

Handmade silver jewellery is sometimes so much more than a silver necklace or earrings – it can have a much deeper meaning both for the giver and for the person wearing the piece.   

Have a look through our guide and choose the perfect piece to give you strength and support or the perfect gift for someone to show how much you care. 


The feather symbolizes trust, truth, honour, strength, wisdom, power, freedom and many more things. It represents the limitless freedom of the birds, spiritualism, and lightness. 

Some people believe that feathers are ‘messages’ from beyond, from our loved ones that passed away. 

Different coloured feathers have different meanings.  

White, (silver) is the most common Angel feather and is thought to be a sign of faith and protection. A white feather can also be your Angel telling you that any loved ones in heaven are safe and well.   

Should you find a yellow (gold) feather, your Angels may be nudging you to smile, have fun and enjoy life!  

A red or pink feather (rose gold) represents courage, strength, stability and good fortune. If you’ve been going through a difficult time of late, your Angels are sending comfort to let you know how strong you are. 

A truly special gift for someone who needs to be strong or to offer comfort to someone that has lost a loved one. 

Angel Wing 

Angel wing jewellery is a thoughtful gift for a friend or loved one to remind them that they have a guardian angel watching over them. It is a symbol of spirituality, protection and love. 


The key is a symbol of freedom and opportunities. It symbolises knowledge, curiosity, new beginnings and opportunity. It reminds us to learn from the past when unlocking doors to a better future so would make the ideal gift for someone moving house or changing jobs. The 'Key to the Door' is also a traditional present for 21’s birthdays and can also be a gift of love – literally giving “the key to my heart”. 

Tree of Life 

Knowledge, wisdom and the interconnection of all life are represented by the tree of life, with its roots deep within the soil and branches reaching up to the sky. It is a symbol of growth and strength and just like a tree, a person grows stronger over time and strives for greater knowledge and new experiences.  Perfect for someone who loves to learn and grow every day.  

Northern Star 

Is said to bring luck, protection, direction and guidance. The Northern Star has been used to find your way since the beginning of time. A great gift for a traveller or someone reaching a significant milestone in their journey of life.


The star signifies good luck, ambition, fame and self-fulfilment and would make a great gift for the star in your life or to congratulate someone on an achievement.   


Many flowers have individual meanings such as the Daisy symbolising innocence or the Lily, beauty.  But generally, the flower represents new beginnings, love and hope, making it a thoughtful gift for friend or loved one.  


A classic symbol of love and passion, the heart is a metaphorical representation of a person’s deepest emotions.  The heart also represents life and power, as well as guidance, intuition and truth, hence ‘listen to your heart’ and ‘follow your heart’. A classic gift for a loved one or an inspired present for someone making a big decision. 


The swallow is recognised for its swiftness in flight and free spirit, making it a meaningful addition to a friend or loved one who’s a free spirit at heart.  

Hamza and Eye 

If you or your loved one feel you need more support, our lucky eye and Hamza jewellery would make the perfect choice. Designed to inspire a feeling of safety and support in the wearer.  


In many cultures, the butterfly is associated with the soul and therefore is a deep and meaningful representation of life. Not only this, but a butterfly is seen as a symbol of transformation and change. Th perfect gift for someone making big changes in their lives. 


The Owl is sacred to the Greek goddess of learning - Athena, and is a symbol of wisdom and intelligence. Would make a lovely gift for someone who is celebrating passing exams or taking on a new challenge.
