The Story Behind This Piece

The lovely dragonfly appears in much of our jewelry, spreading its wings and drawing attention to its elegant and beautiful form. These exquisite insects have been around for all of our history, as fossils of large dragonflies have been found dating back 325 million years. Throughout history, dragonflies have been used as motifs in poetry, pottery, and jewelry, symbolizing change, positivity, and strength. Read more about the Dragonfly’s symbolism on our blog. 

In Gypsy Handmade jewelry, the dragonfly is often embellished with turquoise, pearls, and cubic Zirconia, mimicking the dazzling colors of the insects themselves. Drawing inspiration and meaning from its long history, we have reintroduced the dragonfly into modern jewelry fashion, and these pieces bringing life to every wearer’s style. As the focal point of these pieces of jewelry, the dragonfly continues to embody the image of strength and confidence, making it the perfect motif for jewelry that makes a statement.
