You know this already - Pumpkins are our happy place. For us they are a small sign of the Dixi Family and our wonderful community of Autumn lovers!
But it isn't just that. Perhaps the most enduring symbol of the Harvest season, the Pumpkin is a sign of fertility and prosperity. For our US friends, they may also symbolise a feeling of thanks, as they are a popular inclusion in many Thanksgiving dishes and decorations.
A little nut, but don't underestimate. It is the seed of the mighty Oak (Quercus) tree, symbolising potential, stability and strength. From that determined little seed, another mighty Oak shall be born when it is nurtured and cultivated. Let this be a reminder in your own life - you must take time to nurture and care for yourself in order to see your full potential.
The Maple tree is hardy and enduring, easily standing proud against the elements whatever they may be. It is a symbol of balance, love, longevity, and with its many arms of glorious leaves, abundance. The humble Maple leaf also mirrors the changing of the seasons, as it sprouts from lush and bright Green in the Spring and Summer months, to fiery orange and brown in the Autumn and Winter time; reminding us of the ephemeral nature of our lives, and the need for us to be open to growth.
When you think of a 'wreath' you may think of evergreens and circular shapes - both of which make it a sign of eternal life. Combining a wreath with all of the above elements, this ring is here to remind you of your value. None of us are here forever, but through our strength, our kindness, and our love, little parts of you will live on forever.
Autumn Is Calling
The little secret message on the inside of the band once again goes back to our Dixi family of Autumn lovers - a little script that reminds you of the community that you are part of! The Autumn is Calling Ring isn't one that we only wear in the Autumn months - it's a ring that we wear ALL year round, in stack after stack.
Does this ring symbolise something specific for you; has it brought you its own meaning? Let us know. We love hearing your stories, and the connections you have formed with our little treasures!
