Dolphin Charm Earrings – hand-made with Tibetan silver charms

The Dolphin Charm Earrings symbolise one of our most-loved sea creatures.  For centuries many ancient cultures gave dolphins a special place in their legends, myth, and folklore. Indeed, early cultures believed dolphins to be a type of fish, so it was common for dolphins to be portrayed in early Christian symbolism.

Sailors of many nations consider a dolphin to be lucky, or a good omen. Often, this was for practical reasons, as pods of dolphins frequent shipping lanes and coastal areas where humans dwell. For the earliest seafarers, a dolphin would have been a welcome sight and sign that dry land wasn’t far away. Old sea dogs knew that dolphins following a ship was a good omen, as their boat was sure to reach harbor safely.

This kind-hearted nature can be traced back to at least one of many Greek myths. To Ancient Greeks, dolphins were hugely revered, showing up in countless ways as messengers, rescuers and more.

But in modern times, the dolphin has many different meanings attached to it, including:

  • Peace and harmony
  • Protection
  • Playfulness and joy
  • Resurrection
  • Inner Strength
  • Cooperation

They are socially skilled, intelligent, agile, joyful, and playful creatures that share many emotional similarities with humans. There is an impressive range of different species of dolphin and they all have their own unique identities and characteristics!
