Religious Jewelry For Faith & Fashion
Ceremonies that have a religious undertone are a great reason to purchase religious jewelry. Christenings, confirmations, & baptisms are all times when religious jewelry is appropriate as a gift. Many personalized or special pieces of jewelry are given to babies & children by Godparents & relatives at these special times. Christmas is also a special time to give religious jewelry as a gift.
Fashion jewelry increasingly contains religious symbols. When people see celebrities wearing an interesting piece of jewelry like a sideways cross necklace or love knot earrings, many times they want the same item for themselves.
Some people wear religious jewelry because they have a deep commitment to their faith & some people wear it just because they think that shiny cross necklace looks good on them. Either way, someone will surely compliment you on your jewelry & may want to know where you got it!
History of Religious Jewelry
As far back as ancient Egypt, people have loved religious jewelry. Jewelry was made of precious metals such as gold & encrusted with precious stones. Egyptian jewelry was very ornate & often contained images of scarab beetles, believed to bring good luck. Necklaces with pendants, wide bracelets, & rings have been discovered that have the scarab beetle image on them which also was a reincarnation or rebirth symbol in Egypt. Christianity had not been introduced back then, so the symbols that we know today as religious were not the ones portrayed on Egyptian jewelry.
In old times, different religions often faced persecution from those in power at any given time. Wearing religious jewelry bearing certain symbols was often a good way to identify yourself to those of the same faith. This way, you could easily identify others with the same commitment as you.
When Christianity was introduced, many of the religious symbols associated with the faith began to appear on jewelry. Items such as the fish & the cross became more & more popular as the years passed. They can now be purchased on many types of jewelry including necklaces, bracelets, earrings, & rings.
