Looking for the oh-so-popular arrow necklace? We’ve found it! This trending accessory piece is making waves through fashion blogs and weddings alike… and for good reason. The arrow necklace can symbolize anything you’d like it to. Many believe an arrow is a way to look ahead, leaving the past behind and believing in tomorrow.
In other words, an arrow is a symbol of looking to the future and not being stuck in the past. It is about being present. And isn’t that a beautiful way to live one’s life, in the moment?
Cliché, I know. But stick with me.
In addition to an arrow being a symbol of the present and future, an arrow stands for one’s adventures, whether indoors or in the great outdoors; no matter where you battle, be brave, be fierce, and blaze your own trail. Wow, all that from a tiny little hand-stamped arrow? Powerful stuff.
Since the arrow necklace is also a delightful trend — I mean, just look at how lovely it is — it is really taking notice with brides and bridesmaids alike. An arrow can signify your friendship — your tribe! — and makes a beautiful piece of jewelry as part of your bridesmaid gifts.
And of course, as Cupid would point out, an arrow most often signifies love, making an arrow necklace one of the top Valentine’s Day gifts year after year.
No matter what this symbol means to you, there are two things I know to be true in this very moment, across the board: 1) the arrow necklace is most certainly on trend, and 2) it makes a beautiful gift for everyone in your life. Yes, including yourself!
After seeing many (many!) arrow necklace styles in-person and online, it was time to share our favorite arrow necklaces to inspire you. These necklaces are beautifully handcrafted (made with love) by an independent small business on Etsy. Shop + support small! <3.
An arrow necklace makes a lovely gift for yourself to symbolize this journey ahead of marriage; it also makes a keepsake gift for bridesmaids as a way to show your love and appreciation.
Anyways, enough from me — on to the list already, Emma! — because I know that’s what you’re thinking. So, let’s get to it… and be sure to tell me which one is your favorite (mine is #1 but I really do adore them all!)
