A bow is defined as a knot tied with two loops and two loose ends. For most of us, we first learned about the design of a bow when we learned to tie our shoes. As we got older, perhaps it was a bow for our hair. And now, as women, we can still enjoy the beauty of a bow and this time it’s in the form of jewelry. For some time now, the bow motif has been popular in the form of earrings, rings and necklaces.
In case you are wondering why the symbol of a bow has remained in style for some time, perhaps it relates to the historical meaning behind this simple technique. In earlier times, people would tie a string or a bow around their finger to help them to remember something. As jewelry designs emerged, the images of the bow began to surface. For some people, the bow is nothing more than a beautiful symbol, but for others it has a significant meaning.
If you are giving someone the gift of bow jewelry, it may symbolize your desire to be remembered by the wearer. When she looks at the ring, she will recall who gave it to her. Because a bow was historically tied onto the finger in order to help the wearer to remember something, this is the perfect jewelry symbol for those who have a specific sentiment that they do not want forgotten. Perhaps you are giving bow jewelry to someone with the hope that they will always remember how much you love them or that you are thinking of them. If you are a man who is gifting a bow ring to your wife or girlfriend, you can add a humorous touch to the presentation by telling her that, like the bow itself, she has you wrapped around her finger.
With so many variations and styles in jewelry, it can often be difficult to find exactly what you’re looking for in terms of both personal taste and budget. Sterling silver, which is a precious metal, is an affordable alternative to platinum and/or white gold. When designed with sparkling white cubic zirconia, a sterling silver bow design looks both elegant and expensive. In addition, the white metal backdrop provides the perfect compliment to the brilliance of cubic zirconia.
If you’re in the market for a new piece of bow jewelry, consider looking for stud-style earrings, a beautiful necklace or a stunning ring. If you’re shopping for a gift, think about whether the recipient has pierced ears. If you aren’t sure whether or not she wears earrings and you don’t know her ring size, a necklace will be the perfect alternative as it’s sure to be a universal gift that nearly every woman can enjoy. If she does wear earrings or if you do know her ring size, you will be able to choose from a selection of accessories that are sure to compliment one another perfectly. Regardless of the piece of jewelry that you choose, the classic style of the bow is one that she will knot soon forget.
