Silver animals figurines

The silver ornaments in fact confer a special and unusual touch of class that can surprise and positively impress the observer.


They also allow you to characterize the home or office environment with your favorite animal or totem animal, or the guide animal that spiritually represents our essence and is assigned to us at birth. The essence of the animal, and therefore its personality, will talk about us to observers, telling and describing our character, our strengths and our defects without the need for words. The animal you choose to give or buy for yourself will represent and communicate some virtues and some characteristics, so carefully evaluate the most suitable to choose.

A fun and symbolic gift

Temporarily setting aside the spiritual and serious side, these jewels often become a witty and fun gift as they evoke the nicknames given to people, their surnames, or the proximity with some character characteristics between the animal and the person, such as being "independent as a cat", "stubborn as a mule", "smart as a fox", "proud and free as an eagle", "meek as a lamb". In many cases they are given as a lucky charm or as a symbol of good luck, as in the case of ladybugs, elephants, turtles and spiders.


Furthermore, in the history of art and literature, in popular tradition and in legends, there is a constant use of animal figures, attributing different roles and meanings to them. For example, just to name a few, the owl is a symbol of Athena's ancestral wisdom and knowledge (the Greek goddess was in fact often represented with an owl or an owl beside her); the dog assumes the symbol of fidelity and absolute loyalty to the master and of vigilance, of safety, reliability and attachment (an example is the dog Argus of Ulysses, who patiently awaits the return of the hero for twenty years before let yourself die); the cat was the sacred animal par excellence in ancient Egypt for its social utility (it kept food supplies safe from rats) and for its link with the divine (it was the sacred animal of Bastet, Goddess of the house, of women, fertility and births); the snake symbolizes the ability to transform, initiation, death and rebirth; the swan accompanies meanings of grace, absolute beauty and harmony; the fawn symbolizes delicacy, innocence and kindness; etc.
