The trend of lion, tigers, elephants, snakes and other animals in jewelry has definitely stayed consistent for the last couple of seasons, in regards to jewelry. Beautiful animal bracelets, necklaces, and bangles can take a simple + minimal ensemble up ten notches, instantly! Animals tend to have symbolic meanings behind them. Lions for example are thought to exemplify: courage, royalty, power, dignity, authority, dominion, justice, wisdom and ferocity. Thus, it's no wonder jewelry designers have continuously used animals to create wonderful pieces over the years. Here are some animal pieces that have caught my eye. Welcome to the Animal Kingdom.
