The symbols embodied in our jewels reveal the truth about our identity and the true nature of reality. Behind these sacred symbols is the knowledge that enables us to take complete control over our lives, taking us out of chaos, fear and hatred which affect so many of us."

Why ancient symbols are so important?

Like written language, symbols carry with them meaning that allows us to communicate with each other. But unlike language many ancient symbols also contain something more. A deep meaning that lies in the base of our subconscious. Carl Jung called those symbols Archetypes as archaic images or universal thought-forms that influence the feelings and action of an individual. He proposed that these images, patterns or prototypes for ideas are derived from universal or collective unconscious. According to Jung, collective unconscious is an inherited psyche or reservoir of experience and is common to all members of a specific species.

Archetypes can be described as blueprints of our souls. These are primordial images or patterns of behavior that we are born with. The great Greek philosopher, Plato is credited with originating the concept of Archetypes.

Other important notes about symbols from ancient times is that they often carry more than 1 meaning. For example: a plus sign +, can mean a cross such as in religion or it can mean the 4 cardinal directions, north, south, east and west.
