Colorful & Charming Dragonfly Gifts

Dragonflies are amazing and colorful little creatures that hover and dart before our eyes. They are elegant masters of flight, and can move their four wings independently of each other. They don't just flap, they can also rotate their wings back and forth. They can put on incredible aerial shows, flying forwards, backwards, up and down, hovering and make quick turns at high speed. Filming of dragonflies has shown them take flight, catch prey, and return to a perch in about a second.

They really are quite spectacular insects - dramatic and colorful many artists and designers to produce jewelry and gifts that will enchant young women and teenage girls.

The Symbolism of Dragonflies

Around the world, wherever dragonflies are found, they have strong symbolic meanings. Here are just a few of the more interesting ones.

Change:
The dragonfly is a very appropriate token for young women as it symbolizes change and the dawning of self realization. These life changes are associated with mental and emotional maturity. As teenagers, we begin to question and develop our understanding of the deeper meanings of life.

Elegance and Power:
The dragonfly is one of the most agile and impressive flyers. It can hover in place, move up or down, left or right, or fly at high speeds, some say as much as 45 mph. It has a natural grace and elegance to which we can aspire.

Victory and the Seasons:
The Samurai considered the dragonfly as a symbol of Victory, perhaps because of its power and agility. Generally, inJapan, the dragonfly is seen as a symbol of summer and autumn.

Prosperity and Good Luck:
In China, dragonflies are also seen in a positive light as they are associated with harmony, prosperity and good luck.
