Memorial Day may be more than a month away and the Fourth of July even further off, but any day is a good day to be patriotic! Showing your support for your country is always in good taste, and American flag jewelry is an excellent way to do just that.
The flag of the United States instantly communicates our heritage as a nation and reminds us to be thankful for the sacrifices of all those who’ve fought for our freedom. President Woodrow Wilson aptly described all that the American flag represents:
“This flag, which we honor and under which we serve, is the emblem of our unity, our power, our thought and purpose as a nation. It has no other character than that which we give it from generation to generation. The choices are ours. It floats in majestic silence above the hosts that execute those choices, whether in peace or in war. And yet, though silent, it speaks to us—speaks to us of the past, or the men and women who went before us, and of the records they wrote upon it.”
Patriotic jewelry that features the American flag is a lovely way to celebrate your heritage as an American, and pieces such as the American Flag Pendant in 14K White Gold allow you to do just that in vibrant color. This solid 14K white gold pendant is accented with red and blue enamel, creating the look of the stars and stripes in eye-catching fashion. This meaningful piece hangs from a gleaming 14K white gold bale, ready to serve as a bold symbol of your patriotism.
The American Flag Ribbon Pendant in Sterling Silver also portrays a patriotic sprit in vibrant color, but instead of displaying an unfurled flag, it places the stars and stripes on a commemorative ribbon of sterling silver. Contrasting its red, white and blue front, the back of this pendant is formed of simple shining silver, into which the words “remember always” are inscribed. This piece provides both a contemporary twist on patriotic jewelry and a powerful reminder of those who’ve gone before. And, since it’s crafted from .925 sterling silver, this piece is not only good-looking—it’s also remarkably affordable.
Gold pendants that feature American flags can be equally striking without touches of color, as demonstrated by the American Flag Heart Pendant in 14K Gold. This warmly gleaming pendant combines the American flag with the timeless symbol of love—the heart—to send a clear message. By framing Old Glory in a heart-shaped border, this pendant makes it clear that you love your country. At just over 3/4 inches tall, including the shining hoop from which it dangles, this piece is the perfect way to show your support and love for your country on any day.
Whether you choose a piece with vibrant color or a solid 14K yellow gold flag pendant, American flag jewelry is a stylish and meaningful way to show your support for your country. The pieces are instant reminders of the things that make our nation great.
