Rainbows Are A Universal Symbol

Rainbows are a universal symbol of hope and it’s probably not so surprising that painted rainbows began appearing on signs hung in people’s windows in Italy at the beginning of the COVID pandemic, the idea of which caught on and quickly appeared all over the world.

In the UK at the beginning of the COVID crisis, the rainbow became a symbol of the wonderful work the NHS was doing for the patients in their care. Even the British Health Secretary at the time, Matt Hancock, wore a rainbow badge on his lapel throughout the pandemic.

A rainbow appears as a beautiful, colourful arc – perfect in its shape and its colours of the spectrum of colours. What always is present when a rainbow appears is both sunlight and rain.

The Colours of a Rainbow

The colours of a rainbow are Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet – and they always appear in this order.

From children through to adults, we all look on in delight when a rainbow appears, as it often does when the sun shines during a rainstorm.

What can be a better analogy for hope for and the promise of better times ahead? 

Precious and semi-precious gemstones come in such an array of colours that they lend themselves very well to being used in “rainbow jewellery” – a piece of jewellery using the colours of the rainbow and, as in the pieces above, the addition of sparkling diamonds for the raindrops!

I’m sure you’ll agree these gorgeous pieces shown here are some of the best rainbow jewellery.

The Irish folktales talked of there being pots of gold waiting at the end of the rainbow, which had been hidden there by leprechauns – little bearded fellows with a hat and coat. This symbolised success and the fulfilment of all of your dreams.

Of course, these pots of gold were ever-elusive and were never quite reached, hence trusting and believing that the better times were there is woven into this symbol.

Dorothy in the film ‘The Wizard of Oz’, sang about the rainbow in “Over the Rainbow”.

“Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue,

And the dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true”…

“If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, why of why, can’t I?”

“Over The Rainbow” lyrics from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ film.
