The Mărţişor feature a large bumblebee. The bumblebee martisor is a metal brooch tied with a red and white entwined cord - a joyful way of celebrating Spring. Available in Yellow Bumblebee or Orange Bumblebee.
On March 1, men offer women martisoare, which, according to the tradition, a symbol of friendship, love, appreciation and respect. You can also offer this red bow martisor to a woman.
Do you have friends, acquaintances or relatives of Romanian, Moldavian, Macedonian, Greek or Bulgarian origin? Do you want to surprise them? Then this is the gift you are looking for. On March 1, give the 'Martisor', 'Martenitsa ", 'мартеница ' or 'μάρτης' to them and they will be surprised and delighted. Do not forget to leave one “Martisor” for yourself.
You can learn more about the history of Martisor on our Magpie Gems blog post.
