Meaningful Symbols

Posted on Jun 03, 2015

We see symbols everywhere – they are part of our everyday lives. For example, they help us physically navigate our way – when we see a stop sign, we know to pause and look both ways before moving ahead – and the “walking man” tells us it’s safe to cross the street. Symbols can evoke emotional connections, as well. Look at all the beautiful symbols you wear every time you put on your Chamilia bracelet. The Birthstone charm you wear to remind you of your child, or the Secret Message Heart from a loved one.

We chose the hummingbird as our brand symbol seeing a kinship in the bird’s vibrant colors and quick heartbeat, and to communicate the beauty and energy found in living a full and purposeful life.

What are the symbols in your life? Sometimes it’s an icon you’ve loved all your life, such as a heart, or a cross. Sometimes it’s a symbol you choose because it reminds you how you want to navigate the life you want to live. These particular symbols make us stop and consider the moment. They help us tell our story.

It was exactly in this spirit that we created Chamilia’s new Fine Jewelry Collection. When our talented designers created this collection, they said, “We thought deeply about a woman’s life experience and how those experiences shape who she is and how she expresses herself through jewelry.”

For example, we are reminded of growth when we see a new leaf. Flowers symbolize an array of sentiments such as affection, beautifully designed in our Zinnia pendants and earrings. Or the stability we see in an anchor, as well as the direction symbolized in our North Star collection.

We hope that you can find a symbol in this new collection that you’ll wear as a talisman to remind you to live with all your heart.


Introducing the Chamilia 2015 Summer Collection Catalog!

Good Night

“I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”
–Vincent van Gogh

 As summer makes its celebrated entrance and we get caught up in the beautiful sunshiny days, it’s easy to forget how glorious the night can be. When most of us think summer, we think sun. But what about the stars? The moon? It’s finally warm enough to stay outside past sundown, and that means gazing up at the night sky.

The night sky is a breathtaking reminder to wonder. When we look at the stars, it’s impossible to count them. There’s no way to know just what’s there. It can make us feel tiny and grand at once. It makes us stop and dream, even if only for a second, and marvel at the enormity of our universe.

This season, make it a point to take time out for the stars. It’s the perfect opportunity to slow down and look up. If you want to learn a bit, download an app or find an interactive map online (there are so many great free resources—just Google “night sky” or “stargazing”). Or, if it suits you, just take a deep breath and let yourself get lost in the wonder. Happy gazing!

Chamilia is proud to introduce its first collection of fine jewelry.

You Are Amazing

Thank you all for participating. Congratulations to contest winner, Vicky Hauprich!


As Mother’s Day approaches, we begin to think about all of the women in our lives who have been like mothers to us. The word mother has as many definitions as there are women in the world. Mother is both a noun and a verb, a person and an act. Biology tells us that each of us has only one mother… but mothering? Well, that’s a different story altogether. Mothering is a way of loving that’s all tied up in womanhood—it’s the way women care for each other, the way we nurture, encourage, soothe, and champion the ones we love. Being a mom is so much more than mere science, and we’ve all been mothered by a whole tribe of amazing women. Aunts, sisters, friends, grandmothers, even colleagues. Think about the amazing women in your life. Like the women shown here at Chamilia —those who inspire, empower – and most of all – bring out the best in each of us. What have they taught you? How have they made you feel?

In celebration of Mother’s Day, Chamilia is proud to offer the 2015 Limited Edition You Are Amazing Gift Set, perfect to honor all of your amazing mothers and mother-ers alike. From April 23 – May 5, 2015, when you post a comment about an amazing woman in your life using the application above you’ll be entered to win the You Are Amazing Gift Set. And, you can refer friends to enter the giveaway and be entered up to 10 additional times! The winner will be announced on May 6th, just in time for Mother’s Day.
