3 British Icons & Their Symbolism

This week the UK is celebrating the Queen's birthday, so we're looking at our favourite Royal charms and the meaning behind them.

 

Shop the Fancy Rosary with Small Orb Charm

The Orb
The Sovereign's Orb, as this part of the Crown Jewels is officially named, is a symbol of Godly power. A cross above a globe, it represents 'Christ's dominion over the world', as the Monarch is God's representative on Earth.

Shop the Royal Crown Large Charm & Royal Crown Mini Charm

The Crown
A crown is the traditional symbolic form of headgear worn by a monarch or by a deity. It traditionally represents power, legitimacy, victory, triumph, honour and glory, as well as immortality, righteousness and resurrection.

Shop the Corgi Charm

The Corgi
In living memory, no world leader has been as widely identified with a particular animal as Elizabeth II with her corgis. Symbols of friendliness, the Queen has owned at least 30 Pembroke Welsh Corgis over the last 80 years.
