PINKY SWEAR:// To pinky swear, or make a promise, is the entwining of the little fingers (“pinkies”) of two people to signify that a promise has been made.
PINKY SWEAR has long been in the making and is the culmination of feminine lines, intricate design and attention to every minute detail. With inspiration from new beginnings and fresh starts, to age-old traditions and promises (or perhaps to just keeping a good thing going), PINKY SWEAR is a gift to oneself or to a friend or partner, as a symbol of a new stage of growth in life.
So what is a pinky promise? A concept said to have originated from Japan, the pinky swear is built on the idea that soulmates are connected by a red string of fate attached to each of their pinkies. A connection not easily broken. A pinky swear band is both symbolic of a promise made between two people, and of the invisible bonds that hold them together even when apart.
STARS AND MOONS – I promise to love you to the moon and back. Reach for the moon and even if we don’t make it, we will land amongst the stars. Lost in the cosmos, a lonely world where you always have each other and your promise. Impossibilities don’t count, or matter. Our PINKY SWEAR stars and moons come in a pair of mismatched studs, a necklace and bracelet. The stars and moon pendants hang from a delicate rose gold chain.
BULLETS – I would take a bullet for you. A promise from the heart with true meaning and intention – the intention behind the symbol of a bullet. Wear a bullet close to your heart to remind one of the intentions of their pinky swear. The PINKY SWEAR bullets come in the form of pendants which hang from our rose gold ear sleepers and also in droplets along a chain necklace.
HAMSA – The promise of protection as you embark upon fulfilling your promise. The Hamsa hand is a strong and powerful symbol which is cherished in more than one religion, and can also be seen as a reminder of ones true self. The eye of consciousness one can never truly hide from – to be true to the promise you make to yourself. The PINKY SWEAR Hamsa comes in the form of a pendant which hangs from a rose gold sleeper, a chained bracelet and necklace.
MOUNTAIN/TRI RINGS – To reach your highest peak; to conquer all your wildest dreams. Sometimes a pinky swear can be all to yourself. The most intimate form of promise. We all have aspirations and a piece of PINKY SWEAR is a daily reminder of this. The mountain and tri ring comes in a styled rose gold band set with diamonds.
Every piece of PINKY SWEAR has been designed with ethereal femininity in mind and we have chosen diamonds and rose gold to bring out the delicate beauty of the unique bands, necklaces, pendants and earrings. The collection has been created to stack or layer, which means you can wear them with your other jewels. After every promise, add to your PINKY SWEAR pieces in the future; to perhaps build on a pinky swear already made.
