Nourishing my body with the fruits of the earth, I am HAPPY HERBIVORE

This beautiful tropical fruit radiates positive sunny vibes and has long been adopted as a symbol of hospitality and welcoming in many cultures. Pineapples are such unique, flamboyant fruits that aren’t afraid to stand out from the crowd and we LOVE them!

Every unique piece in our Identity collection tells its very own story, celebrating our planet’s diversity, ecology & promoting our collective well being. To embody this concept,  each piece of Chickpiece jewellery features our signature diamond cut sterling silver ring that sparkles and shines, reflecting the brilliant light and energy of our planet and the connection between our six Identity values.

Happy Herbivores love…Pineapples!

The pineapple originated in South America, where it has been cultivated for many centuries. The introduction of the pineapple to Europe in the 17th century made it a significant cultural icon of luxury.  Since the 1820s, pineapple has been commercially grown in greenhouses and many tropical plantations. Further, it is the third most important tropical fruit in world production. In the 20th century, Hawaii was a dominant producer of pineapples, especially for the US, however, by 2016, Costa Rica, Brazil, and the Philippines accounted for nearly one-third of the world’s production of pineapples. Pineapples grow as a small shrub; the individual flowers of the un-pollinated plant fuse to form a multiple fruit. The plant is normally propagated from the offset produced at the top of the fruit,or from a side shoot, and typically mature within a year.

In England, the first pineapple was grown at Dorney Court, Dorney in Buckinghamshire, and a huge “pineapple stove” to heat the plants was built at the Chelsea Physic Garden in 1723. Because of the expense of direct import and the enormous cost in equipment and labour required to grow them in a temperate climate, in greenhouses called “pineries”, pineapple became a symbol of wealth. They were initially used mainly for display at dinner parties, rather than being eaten, and were used again and again until they began to rot.

Nutritionally, raw pineapple pulp is 86% water, 13% carbohydrates, 0.5% protein, and contains negligible fat. In a 100-gram reference amount, raw pineapple supplies 209 kilojoules (50 kilo-calories) of food energy, and is a rich source of manganese and vitamin C. Also present in all parts of the pineapple plant is bromelain – a mixture of proteolytic enzymes. Bromelain is under preliminary research for treatment of a variety of clinical disorders, but has not been adequately defined for its effects in the human body.

This iconic tropical fruit has been celebrated throughout history, early explorers to the West Indies & Americas learned that a pineapple placed at the entrance of a village meant all were welcome. This tradition continued back home when sailors would hang the fruit on their home’s door to signal their return from a voyage. These days the pineapple continues it’s welcoming history as a widely recognised symbol of hospitality and gives a sunny feeling to many of us.
