International Women's Day 2024

Introduction to International Women’s Day 

International Women's Day, celebrated annually on March 8th, is a global recognition of the achievements, resilience, and contributions of women throughout history. This day serves as a reminder of the progress made in the fight for gender equality while highlighting the ongoing challenges that women face worldwide.  

International Women's Day has its roots in the labor and women's rights movement. The first National Women's Day was organized by the Socialist movement in the United States on February 28, 1909. The idea gained international traction, and in 1910, the International Women's Conference in Copenhagen proposed establishing a National Women's Day across the world. 

The first International Women's Day was celebrated on March 19, 1911, in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland. However, the date was later standardized to March 8th, and it has been observed globally ever since. Over the years, International Women's Day has evolved into a platform for advocating women's rights, promoting gender equality, and celebrating the achievements of women in various fields. 


Celebrating Women’s Day 

Celebrate yourself (if you’re a woman) or celebrate for someone else (who is a woman). 

Do some voluntary work, donate to charity, get together with friends, host a party. Give yourself a treat, get yourself/others a gift! Below are some jewellery ideas for you. 


Milestone Jewellery - Commemorate significant milestones or achievements of yourself or the important women in your life. For example, a key pendant for turning 21, or a key/lock charm for buying a first house, a car charm for getting your first car, and so on.  

Birthstone Jewellery – Celebrate the birth of a superwomen in your life by gifting her a piece of jewellery with her birthstone. Read one of our previous blogs for the 12 months of birthstones.

Symbolic Jewellery – This can be symbols from pendants or charms that represent something symbolic, important, or powerful. For example, an anchor for someone you think is very brave in life, or a crown for the most important women (Queen) in your life. Of course, not forgetting the most classic heart shape jewellery that everybody knows symbolises love.  

Blessing Jewellery – This is a new type of gold, not so much jewellery, that is affordable and trending in recent months. A mini gold bar with different Chinese characters on it that represents different blessings, this is commonly kept in wallets, bags, or even displayed on tables and more. Choose from good blessings such as 幸福 (happiness), 平安 (protection), and  财富 (wealth), and gift these blessings to a loved one today!
