How Does Jewelry Make YOU Feel?
We have seen some great quotes from different people on how jewelry makes them feel. Here are some feelings from our customers: “Every piece of jewelry I have carries a piece of my story”, “Jewelry makes me feel beautiful,” and “I feel like this ring is so right for me,” These come straight from the women who inspire us daily at Beksan Designs.
People have been decorating themselves through the ages. We have seen animal teeth, bones, feathers, shells and reeds adorned on the bodies of our ancestors in different parts of the world. The royal and aristocratic jewels in museums today are beautiful artifacts. It was the jewels at Topkapi palace in Istanbul that stimulated our interest in jewelry design and our desire to start our journey with Beksan Designs! Tree of Life anyone?
Why do we decorate ourselves, you might ask? “In the 40’s, American psychologist Abraham Maslow came up with the ‘Hierarchy of Needs’ – a pyramid with a base of physiological factors followed by safety, love/belonging, esteem, and self-actualization at its very tip.
For example, to satisfy the need of ‘love and belonging’, jewelry has been used to attract mates or wooing by giving gifts (Valentine’s Day, n’est-ce pas?). Modern-day equivalents include engagement rings, or even ‘best friend’ bracelets or necklaces. Don’t we always remember a jewelry piece we are given by family or friends?
Clearly, jewelry is a form of self-expression and beauty. Whether it is a delicate chain or a choker, or a statement necklace, what we choose to wear reflects who we are and sends a message to others.
How can the pieces we wear change the way we see ourselves or the way we feel? Wearing certain rings makes some people feel empowered. Other jewelry, like our evil eye silver bracelet and our sapphire pendants for example, have special meanings, e.g. keeping negative or jealous thoughts away.
