At Annika Rutlin we love to be inspired by, and investigate, the bountiful spectrum of different shapes within our world of jewellery!
Look for Circles Day, always celebrated on November the 2nd, honours the shape of the circle; a form with no beginning or end. Why not use this occasion as the opportunity to give an 'out of the blue' yet extremely meaningful jewellery gift.
This universal symbol represents the infinite nature of energy, wholeness and unity, perhaps just some of the reasons why the Egyptians began using the ring as a symbol of eternal love and devotion...the basis for the wedding ring!
A circle can be viewed as a shield for those standing within; a symbol of protection and in the words of Irish poet, author and priest John O'Donohue "A blessing is a circle of light drawn around a person to protect, heal and strengthen."
When drawn with a dot in it's centre it becomes the astrological symbol representing the sun; one of the themes behind Annika's Solstice Collection.
The Chinese translate the circle as a symbol of heaven, with the square representing the earth. Heaven on Earth is just the way we like to describe Annika Rutlin's Cirque du Carre jewellery Collection where circles and squares interplay to create effortless beauty.
Choose between a silky satin or a glossy polished finish to suit your look and skin tone.
All designers love to play with shapes and which jeweller wouldn't be drawn to the goals of the Alchemists who sought to change base metals into fine gold through the use of the philosophers stone?
The symbol for this stone again involves the interplay of circles and squares; the Cosmos, Material and Spiritual Worlds.
