Time passes faster than any of us can expect. As the days go by, it’s easy to lose track of your goals and get lost along the way. So here’s our reminder to you to strengthen your inner spirits, refocus your energies, and brace yourself for what the universe may throw your way.

What better way to do so than by taking inspiration from the Roman god,  Mars – god of war, guardian of plant life, and a fierce warrior in deed and spirit. In other words, the perfect balance of a fighter’s fierce determination and the brutal perseverance of nature against all odds.

Get inspired with Ask & Embla’s alternative jewelry and elevated staples to suit any style.

1. Sharp, Polished Metal with a Textured Touch

The first thing any good warrior needs is their weapon. Embolden your inner fighter with dagger-point edges and hammered metal as if carved and refined by the god of the forge,  Vulcan himself. Shield yourself from the cruel intentions of others with elaborate filigree stud earrings and ear hangers, or shore up your fiercest defenses with hand hammered stretched ear jewelry imbued with a powerful undercurrent of strength.

2. Minimalist Standouts Inspired by the Force of Nature

Just because springtime has finally arrived, doesn’t mean you can’t draw inspiration from the fierce power of the natural world. From icy blizzards to stormy cyclones, Mother Earth never fails to remind us of the brute force that belies her gentle elegance.

Upgrade your minimalist essentials with threadless earring studs resembling snowflakes, and metallic hangers and clickers that conjure up mesmerising images of whirlpools. For those bold enough to try, add a pearlescent sheen to your stretched ear jewelry with plugs and tunnels that whisper of calm seas before a storm.

3. Intricate Details Made for Wild Wearers

Animals have been symbols of strength and power for millennia across every culture, with each culture paying special homage to certain animals of their choice.

If you want to have the warrior spirit of Mars by your side, take your cues from his sacred animals – feathery edges echoing the wings of the courageous woodpecker; ridged and angled hangers like the horns of a mighty ox or ram; and pointed tunnels like the ears of the noble and regal wolf.
