Mothers. Daughters. Sisters. Wives. Friends. Partners.
Despite the important roles women play in our lives, historically, women have struggled to find the same opportunity, respect and acclaim their male counterparts get in the workplace and in society. This struggle against gender-based discrimination is at the forefront of the women’s movement and is the core theme for this year’s International Women’s Day (#IWD2019), to be celebrated around the globe on March 8th, 2019.
This year, the theme for #IWD2019 is Balance for Better (#BalanceforBetter).
#BalanceforBetter is a campaign that strives to build a gender-balanced world. This campaign promotes gender-equality and women empowerment because gender balance is essential for economies and communities around the globe to thrive.
At FOURSEVEN, we fully support the #IWD2019 #BalanceforBetter message and we try do to our part in helping to give equal opportunities to our employees and partners, regardless of gender, socio-economic status, race or religion.
FOURSEVEN and International Women’s Day: SHE SHAKTI
Our beautiful silver jewellery collections are imagined, designed and created to offer women, men and children unique and meaningful pieces that celebrate the beauty and positivity in our world. In fact, our She Shakti collection is aligned with the key messages of #IWD2019 and #BalanceforBetter.
The fourseven SHE SHAKTI Collection is all about honoring and celebrating women, because we believe in these famous words: “There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.” – Michele Obama
We designed the fourseven She Shakti collection around three primary women-focused themes
“The question isn’t who’s going to let me. It’s who’s going to stop me.” – Ayn Rand
Whether it’s the freedom to choose your own right path in life; the opportunity to rise up to achieve the highest levels of success and leadership in business, politics, sports or other areas; or,the right to equal compensation, women empowerment is critical.
The fourseven She Shakti collection offers meaningful pieces that have been designed with Women Empowerment in mind. For example, our Breakthrough earrings are designed to signify women breaking through the proverbial ‘glass ceiling’ in a male-dominated corporate world. These pure 92.5 silver earrings utilise European glass enamel in beautiful colours to symbolize feminine beauty and grace juxtaposed with the power of success and leadership.
The fourseven 92.5 silver Gear Up Women pendant (Rs 800) and adjustable bracelet are also a strong symbol of Women Empowerment. The traditional symbol for the Female gender has been shaped into a Gear – a typical symbol of male productivity – to showcase the productivity and success of women who are given a chance to prove themselves. One side of the pendant has a beautiful engraved leaf pattern as a symbol of life and the natural beauty of all women. It can be worn on either side depending on your preference.
The fourseven Invincible Queen palm cuff, earrings and necklace are inspired by Rani Lakshmi Bai, a woman of power who forged her own path and eternal place in history. These pieces are trendy for modern women who feel, like we do, that we can celebrate those from the past even in contemporary form factors. In addition, our new officially licensed Disney Captain Marvel pieces are synonymous with Women Empowerment too, as Captain Marvel herself is an icon for women of power, leadership and success.
“Making a living is not the same thing as making a life.” – Maya Angelou
Striking the right balance in life makes all the difference. Women in particular have to learn how to balance many moving parts of life and multi-tasking proficiency becomes as important a skill as any other. The utopian Work-Life Balance often seems like a distant dream that is always just out of reach.
But this Women’s Day, we give a humble request to all women to schedule in some “me time” in their packed calendars. Don’t use a pencil. Use a pen! Then find a way to make it happen. It’s as important as eating, sleeping and breathing to your overall good health and longevity. You will find that you will be more productive and efficient if you take care of yourself too – so your multi-tasking will get easier as your energy increases and your mood brightens!
The fourseven She Shakti collection includes several pieces that are a reminder of the importance of finding the right Balance in life. A few examples are below:
|Stop and smell the roses||Blooming Rose Stud Earrings||https://www.fourseven.com/blooming-rose-stud-earrings.html|
|Spend time with your children||Mother and Child Charm||https://www.fourseven.com/mother-and-child-pendant.html|
|Go with the flow||AnugachchhatuPravaaham Bangle||https://www.fourseven.com/anugachchhatu-pravaaham-bangle.html|
|Find harmony in all aspects of life||Harmony of Opposites Pendant||https://www.fourseven.com/harmony-of-opposites-pendant.html|
|Find time to exercise, breathe and ground yourself||Yoga Serenity Charm Bracelet||https://www.fourseven.com/yoga-serenity-charm-bracelet.html|
If there is a woman in your life who could use a reminder to focus on the balance and find a little ‘me time’, choose a beautiful gift from our She Shakti Balance collection that lets her know you understand, you support her goals and you care about her health and happiness.
“A woman with a voice is, by definition, a strong woman.” – Melinda Gates
We live in an era of self-expression. Writers and speaker whose ideas are literally heard (or read) everyday have a clear path for expression. But many women express themselves in different ways – through music, dance or art, cooking, teaching, how they dress, their actions and the way they treat others with respect and grace. The list is endless!
The fourseven She Shakti Expression collection helps women express themselves through jewellery. When you wear a piece of fourseven jewellery, you share a little bit about who you are and what you care about. For example, fourseven message rings are a great way to share your own message:
- Create: leave your personal hand-print on everything you create in life
- Explore: really see the world, whether it’s just outside your home or thousands of miles away
- Young-Wild-Free: be yourself and let life take you wherever it leads
If these messages are nice but not quite what you want, no worries – create your own personalized message ring. Choose your own words and we will engrave them for you!
Our fourseven Charms collection includes charms that celebrate expression through music, art, dance, writing, hobbies, symbols and professions. Every charm, in a way, is an expression of something you love. What you choose to put on your charm bracelet or necklace is a way to share a bit about who you are with others.
This International Women’s Day (#IWD2019) is a great time to life up your voice and express yourself!
