The lightning bolt symbol has been a symbol of power since ancient times. In many religions and myths it was associated with sky gods, weather gods and other powerful deities who controlled the cosmic order of the universe.
From there it was often picked up by military organizations and comic book superheroes to imply superhuman powers. And new uses are being found all the time for the lightning bolt, such as high voltage warning signs and emoji - it's even been incorporated into Unicode.
Whatever meaning suits you, it's a striking and expressive visual design that seems to have timeless appeal, which also makes it a worthy subject for a pair of eye-catching earrings. These are polished for a smooth and shiny finish to catch the light, creating quick and tiny flashes.
