Why do People Buy Animal Jewellery?

There are many reasons that people buy animal jewellery.

Firstly, it is a great way to express your love for animals. Whether there is a certain animal on your mind, or simply a type of animal that you love and you want to showcase this, with some themed jewellery you can do just this.

It is also a great way to show off your personal style. If you have a preference for country themed clothing, then combining it with jewellery representing a relevant animal is a great way to round off your outfit.

There are many other reasons, including the fact it is a great method of making a statement on animal rights, or a nice way of connecting with your favourite animal and celebrating their spirit and beauty.

Animal jewellery can create conversation between two people and form friendships based on a mutual love for dogs, for example.

Whether you love all animals, one species, or just one specific animal, themed jewellery showcasing your love always goes down well and can really make an outfit.

How to Pick the Right Animal Jewellery for You

Make it Personal

A great way to choose animal jewellery that is really special to you is to make it personal.

This can be based on many things, such as your favourite animal or even your name (if you’re called robin, it’s a good reason to choose robin jewellery, for example).

You could be buying an item in honour of an animal that has sadly passed away, or something that elicits a memory from the past.

By making it personal, you don’t just get a piece of jewellery, but you get a representation of yourself, and this makes it much more meaningful. Adding an initial charm can create an even more personal touch.

Focus on Symbolism

Different types of animal jewellery carry with them various symbolism, and it is worth having a quick check into your favourite animals and seeing if one matches the feelings you want to showcase before you buy.

If so, the perfect animal to base your jewellery around may be obvious after learning what they really mean.

There are many things that can be symbolised through your animal jewellery, from hope and new beginnings to passion and love.

Take a look through some of our blogs on this topic to find the ideal choice for you.

Match it to Your Outfit

While you do need to think about the animal that you are basing your jewellery on, you also have to focus on how it will look.

Jewellery works best when matched with your complete outfit, so if you know what you are going to wear and are looking for the perfect accompaniment to it, then this can help to point you in the right direction.

Look into colours so they don’t clash, and the style you are going for, so your jewellery doesn’t stand out for the wrong reasons.

Work Out What Jewellery You Want 

There’s not just one type of jewellery and working out what type you would like can help narrow down your search to just the pieces that will really work for you.

Do you want a new necklace or earring?

Maybe something subtle like a dog charm? Or something much more extravagant like a bold pair of horse earrings is what you’re looking for?

Knowing what you need, where you have space in your wardrobe, and what will work best for your style will make sure you’re only looking at items that you will love.

It’s Okay to Go with Your Gut

If you’re looking through the archives of animal jewellery and something jumps out at you, even if it’s not something you first expected, then this could be a big sign that this is the perfect item for you.

Your instincts sometimes provide all of the answers you need when purchasing jewellery, and sometimes the most meaning can be garnered from an animal or item that you least expected.

If something jumps out at you, don’t be afraid to take the leap and buy it.

It could just turn out to be your next favourite piece of jewellery.
