What does the bee symbolise?

Bees have long been a symbol of hard work and diligence, and their industriousness is immortalised in jewellery form with the honey bee motif. Often seen in sterling silver, the honey bee symbolises strength, determination and a never-give-up attitude - qualities that we can all aspire to. At Latelita, we love the poppy appeal of the honey bee jewellery and feel that it makes a beautiful addition to any jewellery collection. Whether you choose a pair of stud earrings or a delicate necklace, the honey bee is sure to bring a touch of sweetness to your look.

The history of the Bee in jewellery

Bees have long been associated with royalty and luxury, and bee-themed jewellery has been worn by many different cultures throughout history. The ancient Egyptians revered bees and often used them as symbols of power and wealth. Bee earrings were especially popular among the Pharaohs and their families, and bee pendants were often buried with them in their tombs.

2. Don't use pesticides or herbicides that could kill bees

Pesticides and herbicides can be harmful to bees, so it’s best to avoid using them if possible. If you do need to use them, make sure that you follow the instructions carefully and only use them when necessary.

3. Provide a water source for the bees, like a bird bath or fountain

Bees need water to drink and cool down, so providing a water source for them is a great way to help them out. A bird bath or fountain is perfect for this, and you can even add some rocks or pebbles to help the bees climb in and out.

4. Build a bee hive or provide a home for wild bees

If you’re feeling extra bee-friendly, you could even build a bee hive or provide a home for wild bees. This is a great way to help them out and make sure that they have a safe place to live.

5. Educate others about the importance of bees and how they can help to save them

Finally, one of the best things you can do is educate others about the importance of bees and how they can help to save them. By spreading the word, you can help to make a difference and ensure that bees are around for generations to come.
