FIYAH: Cross Culture Jewellery
A hoard of ancient symbols
FIYAH jewellery crosses borders, to heal, support, give hope, and rejoice. But above all we aim to bring people together across cultural divides. Gold, silver, and gemstones have no nationality or geopolitical agenda. They are pure of heart, ancient in spirit, and they beautify everyone, everywhere and everywhen.
We make cross-cultural jewellery to celebrate life in all its diversity, faiths, colours and creeds, so that FIYAH living emotion jewellery can be embraced by all who shares our values.
These are some of our universal designs:
Feather jewellery beckons protective angels to watch over you and provide loving reminders of those no longer with us. Plumes resonate with love, guidance and support and dispel negative energy. Feather jewellery encourages awareness of a spiritual world and represents the freedom to fly and soar above the earthly realm. It’s intimate, personal, and empowering in times of hardship and loss. Feathers offer the subtlest touch of hope and healing in simply beautiful pieces that match any clothes and occasion.
Chinese Lucky Coins
Chinese Lucky Coins feature both the influence of heaven - depicted by its circular shape - and earth - which is represented by the square punched out in the middle and which gives is its distinctive three-dimensions allure. Adorned with Chinese characters with auspicious meaning, they are ancient talismans of prosperity and abundance and considered to be one of the Eight Treasures of Life inscribed on charms and art.
Infinitely varied, the complex shapes of leaves have been transformed into captivating jewellery, blazing green, orange, yellow and russet brown as the seasons change. Falling and budding leaves complete the circle of life, while garlands woven of leaves are the ultimate recognition of achievement and victory. In ancient cultures, people wore leaf-design jewellery to feel closer to nature, to celebrate victory, and for the simple beautify of their form. The laurel leaf wreath, in particular, is an ancient symbol of honour and success.
Crocodiles in art have multicultural meanings: they can symbolise change or a new beginning and warn of unseen danger lurking or bad advice ahead. Some believe crocodiles contain the souls of ancestors and others see the predator as a sign of independence, stealth and efficiency. The Aztecs and Mayans believed the crocodile was a fertility goddess who helped form the earth. This powerful and spirited animal relies on primal instincts and acts as a talisman for you to do the same.
