Butterflies are the embodiment of spiritual growth and transcendence. Many believe that the life of a butterfly symbolizes great change, rebirth, and renewal. The metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly reminds us to let go of old cycles and limitations and embrace a new way of being. In jewelry, the sentiment surrounding the butterfly holds great value. If you’re a fan of continuous growth and learning, then manifesting a butterfly pendant is a meaningful choice. It’s a tangible way to stay connected to the aspirational symbolism of the butterfly – boundless dreams, a colorful palette, and living life to the fullest. Truly, what is life if not filled with dreams and possibilities. The one who can dream it, can achieve it! So, Gabriel & Co. has created an array of butterfly necklaces to help you stay connected to your dreams.
Meaning Behind the Butterfly Design
Considering a butterfly’s life stages can be quite instructive to our own life journeys. Metamorphosis is the growth process during which a butterfly transforms from an egg to its adult form. Interestingly, this Greek word means transforming and embracing changes, something we do all our lives and that eventually leads to greater success. The butterfly’s egg stage is all about survival, as caterpillars eat most of the eggs laid by female butterflies. The second, caterpillar stage, is focused on eating and growth. The third stage, ‘chrysalis,’ occurs when the caterpillar has fed itself enough, and goes into a reclusive state; this is the stage of immense growth. Nothing on the outside is changing, but a lot is happening on the inside. For the caterpillar, this stage begins the creature’s metamorphosis into its adult state, the colorful butterfly we prize. For us, this stage is similar to looking within and embracing one’s self. Profound self-reflection and self-awareness lead to unfathomable growth in life. The life of the butterfly reminds us to be willing to put aside everything previously known and embrace new ways of being.
Most people wear a butterfly necklace to connect to this idea of growth and endless possibility. Isn’t it great when jewelry not only dazzles but also holds a deep meaning or positive affirmation? The gracious butterfly necklace represents new life, letting go of old habits and patterns, and finding inner strength.
