Mother Nature has been kind to us, and has given us an opportunity to live with so many beautiful creations! Right from the majestic mountain ranges to the endlessly flowing water bodies and from the beautiful birds to the lovely animals; we cannot imagine our world without these natural elements in it. And that’s the reason why ‘nature-inspired’ designs are in vogue.
You can find coral reef earrings, seashore inspired pendants, tree jewellery, cute animal earrings, and so on. But, the one inspiration that has caught every craftsman’s attention at BlueStone is the butterflies! The beauty of these small flying insects has mesmerised everyone since ages – one of the reasons behind those innumerable butterfly parks around the world.
Irony of Earrings
Earrings have a rich history, literally! In ancient times, Egyptians and Assyrians were known to wear earrings, so as to signify their riches. Similarly, Greek and Roman women used to wear earrings to show off their royalty. In Greece, earrings were considered to be ornaments of prostitutes, while in Rome, slaves used to wear earrings. That’s the ironical history of earrings. In one part of the world, earrings depict royalty while in the other part, they depict slavery!
In the 13th century, Catholic Church raised a ban on wearing earrings, as they believed that piercing would change the original form of human being, as created by the Almighty. During those times, only thieves and pirates used to wear earrings. In another part of the world, single mothers, whose husband were killed, used to make sure their sons would wear earrings in their left ear. Similarly, the only son of such single mothers used to wear earrings in their right ear.
Thank God for Nature
Phew! Our most favourite piece of jewellery has travelled through riches, slavery, prohibition, misery, and has finally reached us, hale and hearty! Thankfully, our craftsmen drew inspiration from all facets of life and redesigned these jewellery pieces. Today, earrings are a mandatory piece of jewellery that enhances the beauty of the wearer.
Our celebrities have also been in the forefront in showing their love for nature-inspired earrings. Amber Valletta, the House of Style actor, showcased Spring jewellery collection, by wearing a tree branch inspired earring. Heidi Klum, the German-American model, posed with beautiful butterfly earring designs at an award function.
