Throughout the modern & ancient world the bee is a symbol of wisdom, birth and rebirth & industry. Bees, like fairies, are often considered guardians of the natural world, eternally linked with love, magic and romance. The wearing of a bee emblem can symbolize a strong network of unconditional love and support. It is also thought to bring good luck, wealth and abundance to the wearer. The bee figures prominently in the mythology of nearly every culture, including those of the Mayans, Hindus, Egyptians, and ancient Greeks. Depictions of bees abound on coins and jewelry from the ancient Greek Ionian city of Ephesus (located in present-day Turkey). Within the Temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the bee was the symbol of the goddess, said to represent fertility and healing through the properties of honey.
