Paris Jewellers, a Canadian-Vietnamese, women-owned and operated company, will be releasing a limited-edition Arrowhead necklace, co-designed by Shayla Stonechild to amplify the stories of Indigenous women. The necklace, which will be available for pre-order on March 8th at 9:00 am MST features a double chain, three diamonds and an arrowhead pendant made in sterling silver plated with 10k yellow gold. The necklace will retail for $149 plus applicable taxes.

Anyone who takes part in the pre-order will receive a free gift, the Paris Jewellers Sparkle & Shine Stick valued at $15. This cleaning stick restores the brilliance of gemstones, Silver, Gold and Platinum jewelry.

The arrowhead pendant holds significance to Shayla as her grandfather, Ray Oulette found an arrowhead in the backyard of her childhood home. The arrowhead signifies ties to her lineage, a form of protection and moving onward. Three delicate diamonds on the arrowhead symbolize our past, present and future. The lower four beads on the double chain represent the 4 directions, the 4 seasons, the 4 cycles within life and the 4 aspects to our wellbeing: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual; which are the foundations within the medicine wheel. The Medicine Wheel, which has been incorporated into the Matriarch Movement logo, represents the interconnectivity of everyone and everything.

“Vision is important, but it’s the people that support you and help create something meaningful, that makes an impact,” says Shayla Stonechild, Founder of the non-profit organization, the Matriarch Movement, “I am thankful to cross paths with Chau and make the vision of this golden arrowhead necklace come to life. It interweaves teachings that mean a lot to me, my identity as an Indigenous woman and the Matriarch Movement.”

For each necklace sold, 100% of the net proceeds will be donated to the Matriarch Movement. Their mission is to rewrite the mainstream narrative around Indigenous women. This donation will be used to provide accessible wellness workshops and resources focused on Indigenous peoples’ healing. There will be an intertwining of Indigenous knowledge with yogic philosophy; each workshop will focus on balance and harmony through meditation, movement and medicine to assist in reclaiming an Indigenous worldview.

This special piece will be sold exclusively online at parisjewellers.ca so we invite you to set a reminder in your calendar now to get your hands on one of these limited-edition necklaces on March 8th at 9 am MST!
