Many centuries ago, under the influence of nature, social views, religious and cultural ideas, people began to interpret the features of precious stones and jewelry to give them symbolic meaning.
Historically, the triangle has become a symbol of thought. For example, the triangle on the ring signified wisdom and, at the same time, the heavenly eye of a benevolent fate, designed to observe the owner of the ring and warn him against reckless actions. That is why a ring with a triangle imprinted into it was a mandatory accessory of a diplomat, ruler, or statesman. This was not enough for the Jews: they believed that it was necessary to have two triangles that together would form a stylized star - the star of David, only then this sign could give strength and success: on a green background in a career, on a blue background in learning, on black - in spiritual perfection, on white - in love.
The square, defined by two horizontal and two vertical intersecting lines, symbolizes matter, gravity, and strict limitation. In Egypt, the court served as the word "field." And it is understandable why we feel a muscular tension if we want to force the straight sides and right angles of a square to express movement.
A circle is a geometric shape that occurs when any segment moves at a constant distance from a certain point, in contrast to the heavy, tense feeling that the square causes; movement creates a sense of naturalness, relaxation, relieves tension. The circle is a symbol of spirituality in constant motion.
The astrological symbol of the sun is a circle with a dot in the center. All smoothly curved shapes, such as ellipse, oval, wavelike shapes, parabolas, and derivatives, are close to the circle.
In general, we can say that a square is a symbol of immobile matter, a triangle radiating itself in all directions is a symbol of thought, and a circle is a symbol of the eternal movement of the spirit.
Religious and cosmic symbols, natural elements - all this is used today by jewelers, creating jewelry such as amulets. The most common is a star - a celestial body, a decision-maker, and the sun - a source of life and energy.
Plant motifs are also popular. Jewelers often turn to the quatrefoil, a perfect form of a talisman.
Recently, gold pendants in the form of a key have been trendy in the West. The legend has long symbolized love and the household's prosperity.
It is believed that the symbolic design of products has a beneficial magical effect on the spiritual and physical strength of those who wear them. So, the heart is the patron saint of love relationships. The brooch in the form of ruby lips was made by the Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali to symbolize the sensual sphere, and his muse Gala inspired him to do this. He dedicated his paintings to her and ordered jewelry for her according to his sketches.
