Will It Go Round in Circles?
Headbands and necklaces made of circular links were meant to heal heartbreak as well as to create wholeness in both men and women during ancient times.
Some cultures saw the circle as a symbol of democracy, a council or partnership of equals ? as a marriage was intended to be. The circle also represented mobility, as expressed through the wheel and worn in charms or amulets to protect travelers.
The traditional symbols transformed over the centuries into tokens of love and admiration, friendship or passion, depending on what gemstones and designs were used. Diamonds and pearls especially came to represent the enduring love of motherhood as much as romantic love. Rubies represented passion and romance, while emeralds arranged in a circle were supposed to bring never-ending abundance to the recipient, especially if worn on a necklace near the heart.
