It’s March! Not only does that mean that spring is almost here (Goodbye cold winter mornings!) but that we get to celebrate one of the most important days of the year: International Women’s Day on March 8th!
Originating from the 20th-century suffragette and women’s labor movements around the world, the first International Women’s Day was celebrated in 1911 with over a million participants in Denmark, Sweden, and Germany. At first, it had no set date and was mostly celebrated in Eastern Europe, but eventually, the United Nations began celebrating International Women’s Day, inviting all participants to join in on March 8th, 1977.
Today, the holiday holds space for all women to celebrate our hard-earned freedoms and to embrace our own beauty, strength, and power as we continue to demand justice and freedom for all women. To celebrate, we’ve collected some of our favorite jewelry that we find empowering, inspiring, and joyous!
Raw Birthstone Necklace
No woman should be expected to “polish themselves up” for anyone else, so why not wear jewelry that displays that raw, unfiltered energy for all to see? Our Raw Birthstone Necklaces feature custom, genuine raw gemstones for every star sign. If you’re not looking for an astrological match, we recommend aquamarine—a stone of courage, love, and peace.
Carpe Diem Bracelet
Why settle for just one meaningful gemstone when you could have four powerful gems all on one bracelet? The Carpe Diem bracelet is all about, well, carpe diem—seizing the day! Bringing together the energy of tiger’s eye, clear quartz, labradorite, and aquamarine, this is one of the most fiercely powerful bracelets we’ve ever had the pleasure of offering.
Slay queen! Crowns represent the power and elegance that exists inside all of us—the right of every person to take action and stand up for justice and goodness. This charm bracelet symbolizes the justice that we all deserve as humans, as well as the strength and authority we possess to achieve that justice!
With over 100 years of history—and an even longer history of women standing up for their rights—International Women’s Day is deeply important to Horsefeathers Jewelry as a women-owned business that is dedicated to positivity, love, and empowerment of our fellow sisters. We hope you will celebrate this wonderful occasion with us!
