Jewelry for lesbians: Fashion with identity

Lesbos, a Greek island located in the Aegean Sea, was the home of the Greek poet Sappho. As history reveals, this woman was in charge of the instruction of a group of young people whom she described as beautiful. The central axis of Sappho’s poetry is the love he felt for the women who were under his ward. Although at first lesbian (or) was the adjective used to describe what came from the Island, today it is a term that identifies the couple love that can arise between women.


History shows us that lesbianism has been a sexual orientation that has been criticized from a socio-political-religious perspective. Although at present, thanks to projects of institutions in favor of the LGBT movement ( lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals ) and to different States that in their laws give protection to diverse rights, such as marriage and adoption, lesbianism is rejected to a lesser extent, but there is no full acceptance or tolerance.

Promoting respect for these people is a challenge, and fashion has taken certain measures. To contribute to the identity of lesbian culture the latest trends in jewelry offers us a range of unique accessories, which should only be worn by those who wish to, with a captivating style, solidify the respect that each person, by the mere fact of being born, deserves and that is their own by right, regardless of their sexual orientation.

Lesbian jewelry, jewelry symbols

The lesbian jewels of this season are very varied. Designs that in addition to providing elegance and a touch of charisma, have symbols that are steeped in history.

In jewelry, it is very worn as a pendant or pendant, either in gold or silver chains , or in an alternative and unconventional pendant.

The symbol for the letter lambda. This symbol also identifies gays, but due to its graceful shape, many lesbian women like to have accessories with this peculiar symbol. They are also used as rings or earrings.
