Easter -- a time of rebirth, regeneration, renewal -- is also a time for celebration, and many people find that wearing Easter jewelry is an apt thing to do during the season. You can choose from among a wide selection of designs, from the solemn to the elegant to the carefree. Whatever your personality may be, you can be sure that there's an accessory that's just right for the festivities on Easter Sunday. Easter conjures up images of rabbits and Easter eggs, as well as traditions associated with Easter. Most notable of these traditions is the Easter Monday Egg Roll held annually at the White House, which is supervised by the First Lady.
Celebrities and politicians also turn out to watch the children roll Easter eggs on the south lawn of the White House. Of course, you don't have to have celebrity status or be a person of prestige to look good during Easter or any other holiday. With Easter jewelry, a person could look his or her best and not break the bank by doing so. Earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets or brooches with Easter-themed or religiously inspired designs are common sights during the season. Necklaces with cross pendants or images of saints would be appropriate for Easter worship or mass.
Bracelets and earrings that have dangling crosses are also seen on women, as are brooches and pins with similar designs. Men are also seen wearing accessories with religious motifs: cross cuff links and iconic medallions and bracelets. When it comes to Easter festivities, you can look fun-filled and carefree depending on your attire and choice of accessories. Stretch bracelets with rabbit or egg charms are attractive and eye-catching, and many of them are inexpensive to boot! Similarly, you can get more into the spirit of the season by giving Easter jewelry to friends and family: charm bracelets are great gifts for kids, while adult recipients would perhaps appreciate brooches or pendants. Teenagers and other young people, on the other hand, would probably enjoy Easter-themed belly button rings or toe rings. You don't need to spend a large amount of money to give Easter jewelry gifts.
Many of them are available in specialty stores and costume jewelry stores for just a few dollars, but even with the low price, you can be assured of attractive and whimsical designs and satisfactory workmanship. Of course, if you have a bit of extra money to spend on Easter jewelry, you can always avail of them from fine jewelers. And what's great is that some fine jewelers have a philanthropic streak in them -- they donate part of the price you pay for an item to a charitable cause. One classic and classy piece of Easter jewelry that you can buy for yourself or for others is a Faberge-style Easter egg accessory. Carl Faberge was a famous jeweler in Russia, and the jeweled eggs he created, made with precious gems and metals, were much in demand among the Russian royalty and elite.
Today, there are contemporary Easter egg jewelry pieces that follow the Faberge pattern and style. Whether you are attending mass on Easter Sunday, or participating in an Easter parade, or watching kids have fun at the White House Easter Monday Egg Roll -- or all of the above! -- wearing Easter jewelry is a great way to express and celebrate the meaning of Easter.
