The Symbolism of Red Jewellery
With this week being the celebration of Valentines we are taking a look at the symbolism of red jewellery.
From the deep hues of red, certain colours give you spiritual enlightenment, others bring happiness and romance to your life. The symbolic meaning of colours in jewellery inspires and illuminates positive energy.
Red is linked with passion, power, courage, confidence and warmth. For example yellow is for happiness, hope and spontaneity, Green for nature, growth, and harmony, and Blue for calmness and wisdom.
