Rose Symbolism in our Jewellery

The rose is used to symbolize many things, including love, sacrifice and even death.

Sailors often used a rose to honor a wife, girlfriend or mother to bring them peace while they were out at sea.

The rose has also been linked to Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Legend has it that a rose bush grew from a pool of her lover Adonis’ blood and that the white blooms were turned red when she pricked her finger on their thorns. In this instance the rose symbolized a love that can withstand time and death.

The number of petals on each flower is said to have a strong tie to numerology (the belief that numbers are tied to events). Examples of this are the belief in art that 8 petals meant alchemy linking a rose with 7 petals to be a symbol of inclusion and order.

We have incorporated the rose into many of our designs including the Rose Ring, Roses Bracelet, Rose Studs, Rose Band and Skull and Roses Bracelet.
