Jewelry conveys an empowering essence to a woman in how it makes her feel, bringing confidence and owning her presence. Accessories and jewelry are worn to express a confident, empowering expression and to enhance one's beauty, styling a well-put-together wardrobe with accents and statements and defining a person and their style. It's a reflection of who she is and where one has been. Studies have shown that wearing jewelry has made the wearer feel attractive, competent, self-assured to feel comfortable in their own skin and motivates them to achieve goals. It also tells a story that holds special meanings or beliefs. These are reasons why jewelry is important to a woman and taps into her emotions and self-identity. For some, jewelry represents wealth and status. These designs connect and are a reminder of returning to her feminine essence with the symbology it represents and embracing that, as well as an art of creative self-expression of who she is, bringing something meaningful and purposeful.

As women are grateful and gracious to receive a gift from a loved one that represents commitment, brings happiness, and symbolizes the connection to that person. A gift connects us to the person giving it and the memories shared with that person. From another’s perspective, choosing one's jewelry represents independence, freedom to choose, and to pick particular styles. This makes an emotional connection even greater when buying for oneself, which connects with ourselves as an act of deep connection of self-care and an empowering act of confidence within. The growing financial freedom and to buy something special for herself is appealing, jewelry being one of them. She can celebrate achievements or treat herself to that valuable item. The connection is not tied to someone but a connection to the memory or experience that can be created from the purchase that is made. It becomes a remembrance keepsake of emotional memories to look fondly back on.
