What does the dragonfly symbolize in jewelry?

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. With such a long history, dragonflies have inherited rich symbolism and meaning in many cultures.  

In almost every part of the world, the dragonfly symbolizes change and self-realization, the ability to change both physically and mentally, and the ability to accept and embrace change. This idea stems from the dragonfly’s life cycle, as it undergoes a series of nymphal stages and an almost complete metamorphosis before it reaches it’s adult stage. For many, the dragonfly spirit therefore inspires growth and change in our own lives.

The change that is often referred to has its source in mental and emotional maturity and understanding the deeper meaning of life. The Dragonfly’s scurrying flight across water represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life.  

The Dragonfly normally lives most of its life as a nymph or an immature. It flies only for a fraction of its life. This symbolizes and exemplifies the virtue of living in the moment and living life to the fullest. By living in the moment you are aware of who you are, where you are, what you are doing, what you want, what you don’t, and to make informed choices on a moment-to-moment basis.

Therefor, jewelry designers of Romanticwork capture the inspiration of naturalism, integrate the elegant and dynamic form of dragonfly into the jewelry design, and create the "Dragonfly Jewelry" that blends with nature.
