Dragonfly symbolism is particularly prevalent in Japan where there is great respect for and admiration of the insect. The dragonfly is a symbol of summer and autumn, and is also symbolic of the warrior class, and the courage and strength associated with that class. It is also a symbol of happiness, a symbol shared by the Chinese, who also consider the dragonfly a symbol of good luck, harmony and prosperity. This lovely silver bracelet is crowned by a gold dragonfly textured to indicate some of its markings. The bracelet itself also has an all-over pattern of squares that appear like little bricks or metal fence. Although it is marked “925”, I believe it is silver plated. It measures 6” inside circumference with a 1-1/2” gap. It is 1-1/8” wide. This would be a good gift for someone who loves dragonflies.

The purpose of wearing all this silver is of course primarily aesthetic, but they are also worn as amulets to ward off evil, and as symbols of wealth. While usually worn by women, the Miao ethnic minority's silverware is made by men.
