Australian Dreamtime Inspired Jewellery

Dreamtime Diamond Jewellery in Sydney

It would be remiss of any Australian jeweller using Australian stones not to give thanks to the traditional owners of the land. The Aboriginal and Torre Strait Islander people were the first on this continent, and their tales of the Dreamtime have inspired many generations.

This poetic inspiration has resulted in the most breathtaking jewellery. The stories of the Dreamtime share a rich heritage with the land as they recount the origin of everything that makes up Australia. That includes the gemstones that are mined from our red earth.

Great examples are the Dreamtime Diamonds, uncovered with great care at the Argyle Diamond Mine in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. These amazing gems vary in colour as much as the Australian landscape, but all of them reflect the warmth of the Australian sun and of its first people.

The elements that helped shape the country have influenced other styles of jewellery too, which are made of materials from the earth for the earth. For example, there are Jijaka beaded necklaces and earrings. A rich orange, red, and pink necklace represents fire while another is of dark and light blues with accents of black standing for the billabongs.

There are fabric pendants too, and wooden bangles, symbolizing many aspects of this wonderful culture, from bush tucker to dancing flowers and the dancing spirit. Wearing some of this meaningful jewellery can make you feel more in touch with the land you live in.

It is always important to give respect to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and buy from certified resellers so that you know that it is authentic.
