Lovespoon Symbols & Meanings - Each Symbol has a different Meaning

Click here to see our Lovespoons

There has been much debate on the significance of the different symbols and motifs used in the carving of lovespoons. Many of the young carvers were shy and unwilling to show their emotions, and this would attempt to convey their true feelings through the use of various symbols. Over the centuries, many more symbols and motifs have been added and as the love spoons became more elaborate and decorative, they have become collectables.

Popular Charm Choices and The Meanings They Carry

One of the best-loved items of jewellery, the charm bracelet, is often worn with many different charms that have different meanings. Whilst you may simply like the appearance of a particular charm, what you might not be so aware of is the deeper, traditional meanings behind each of these tiny pieces of jewellery.

Here are some of the most popular charms – and the meanings they carry.

Shamrock

One of the most instantly recognisable symbols of good luck is the shamrock or four leaf clover. According to Irish legend, St Patrick used the three leaves of the shamrock plant to explain the Holy Trinity, and it has become a favourite Celtic symbol ever since. A Shamrock is considered particularly lucky and is available within our collection of charms.

Three Wise Monkeys

Another popular charm is one which depicts three little monkeys performing different activities; one covers its eyes, one covers its ears and the third monkey covers its mouth. The phrase to explain this Three Wise Monkeys charm is ‘see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.’ The symbol originates from an ancient carving at a Shinto shrine in Japan and is very popular in Eastern philosophy.

Anchor

A charm showing an anchor symbolises stability, hope and peace. An anchor keeps a boat steady and safe against waves, tides and storms, and an anchor charm is intended to do the same for the life of the person wearing it. It is often used to indicate that a person’s partner ‘anchors’ them and gives them stability.

Acorn

The famous saying, ‘from small acorns, mighty oaks grow,’ is the meaning behind the charm we have available in the shape of an acorn. It symbolises growth, hope and new life, and the fact that even the greatest things have small beginnings. It is a symbol of good luck, with most acorn charms also including a small oak leaf to remind us of the huge tree a tiny acorn will turn into. As a symbol of fertility, this charm makes a great gift to celebrate a pregnancy or birth.

Heart

Perhaps the most popular and widely recognised charm is one in the shape of a heart. This is an age-old symbol for love and romance, and heart charms can be found in a huge variety of styles from engraved Victorian lockets to stylish double hearts. A gift of a heart charm is a simple and effective way to show your love for the recipient, and makes a perfect present for weddings or engagements.

All of these symbolic and meaningful charms, and many more, can be found on our website. Whether you want to add luck, love, stability or growth to a charm bracelet, there is a beautiful and stylish charm to suit any budget here at Hockleycharms.
