Having a Moment: Arrows

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Cupid is gracing the covers of cards and romantic gifts, his bow and arrow synonymous with the romantic time of year. Alex and Ani have referenced the arrow in their ‘hooked on you’ collection for Valentine’s Day 2016, but the arrow has a rich history of symbolism, anchored in Native American Indians traditions…

  • Two Arrows pointing away from each other depicts war
  • Arrows crossed over shows friendship
  • More than 3 arrows represents strength,  it’s easy to snap one arrow where as a bunch of arrows is much harder to break, symbolising solidarity
  • A broken arrow represents a feud coming to an end, the end of a disagreement or war

We love the arrow, for us at fabulous it symbolises overcoming difficult times, it represents the path of your life and reminds us that sometimes you have to be pulled backwards in order to be propelled forwards in a new exciting direction.

As January comes to an end, we want to continue to soar on the excitement of the New Year. The arrow reminds us that we still have a whole year of exciting adventures and that we are very much aiming forward. Here are the Arrow items we have our eyes on this payday…
