Pagan Jewelry is the New Fad

Pagan Jewelry is the New Fad

The new fade in a woman life is pagan jewelry. This new set of fashionable ornaments even though it has word new in it is not new. The word pagan itself is as old as the hills. In fact its introduction into this world is as simultaneous as religion.
Pagan or non confinement with religious beliefs was the term given to those who rebelled against the established faiths of time especially with those faiths that had a singular god. These established beliefs had symbols that they adorned in ornaments to show whose side they were on.
As is the nature in any given moment of man journey on this earth, there are none conformists to ways of life. To show that they are different, they used they maverick ways. This they did by using those symbols entirely differently to what the conformist did.
To understand this, we need not go very far into history as in the twentieth century, the Nazi party made a mockery of the symbol of Christianity by bending the cross to show, they opposite faith to the religion itself. This they got from a truly pagan religion; Hinduism.
All occults have certain symbols that they adorn either concealed or in the open, all depending on the circumstances of the time. If the times were not favorable to them, then they did so clandestinely. This very phenomenon can also be said about the early Christians during the Roman times because they were the pagans among the pagans then.
Coming to our modern era, things have changed significantly. People have got the freedom to liberty and this entitles them to their different beliefs which include what we were as long as it does not trample on another person’s liberty.
In the by-gone eras the jewelry a person wore could have got him into trouble to the extent of having to languish in prison or being sent to the gallows all because the believers thought him as an apostate. This oppression may be a thing that we hear of in history books. This is if you happen to live in one of the liberal countries. Yet, there are some countries still on the planet earth where you are looked up with suspicion and force the majority sect to get you into trouble for the pettiest of things.
As can be understood, paganism, whichever side of the aisle you may be on still flourishes in some pockets of the world even with the sanctions of major religious bigots.
In the contemporary world, it is cute to be different. Especially with the movies that come to that bring the supernatural feeling into people. It infuses a sense of freedom. It gives one the renaissance to investigate one inner self and make choices that lets him stand out among the crowd. Jewelry that does not conform to hand down traditions but have they own identity due to it not being in popular line immemorial since the long journey of historical beliefs is something that takes glimpses toward one.
Finally, to make long matters short. Prince Henry wearing a swastika and a Nazi suit to a party tells one the longer picture in a terse version. Even high profile figures like to show paganism in the jewels they wear as they are not different from one but only the same. The only difference is status.
