Clown jewelry symbolism and meaning
Every thing we wear carries on a certain symbol. This is especially true for jewelry. And in particular, brooches. Here is a little about CLOWN as a symbol.
The clown is a symbol of the mind. The clown scoffs at everything serious in the world, he is cynical and uses humor to show people that they are too serious. He reminds us that to be a man is to make mistakes, to laugh and fool around.
However, the clown is a dual symbol. On the one hand, he reminds that you need to laugh and not take all things very seriously, on the other – the clown is an ominous character.
Like the jester, the clown is the mystical sign of the transformed king — the inversion of the possessor of higher authority. Thus, the clown is a substitute victim (with a close astrobiological and primitive idea of ​​the ritual murder of the ruler). The clown is the last, while the king is the first, but in the mystical order of things the last becomes the second closest to the first.

The son of the faithful London Catholics and a pupil of the Jesuit College of St. Ignatius, Hitchcock, apparently from early childhood, learned the values of painstaking work, control of the results of which the Lord God himself exercises.

The characters are embodied in his films by the most stellar and stylish ladies and gentlemen of the past cinematic age. Marlene Dietrich and Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly and Tippi Hedren, James Stewart and Gregory Peck, Carrie Grant and Sean Connery … Ladies who are able to easily wear breathtaking diamond necklaces and pearl necklaces with natural ease.
