Precious gems and metals are not just accessories we wear to enhance our outfits. They are also a way to celebrate the connection between body and spirit and a method of attracting various energies our way.
Therefore, when selecting a piece of jewellery (for yourself or for another person), it’s important to pay attention to a wide range of aspects such as the stone, the metal, or the shape. These factors matter for a spiritual person and can have various meanings, which is why it’s crucial you take your time when making the choice.
To give you a bit of insight into the world of spiritual and new age jewellery, here are a few guiding tips.
Choosing The Right Stone
The origins, colour, and shape of the stone are important for a spiritual person because each type of gem can attract a special kind of energy.
For instance, a pair of emerald earring studs make an amazing gift for someone who’s birthday is in May (emerald is the birthstone of this month) or someone who is starting a new chapter in their life (emerald symbolizes love and re-birth).
Another great example is the pearl – or the gem of the seas. The pearl symbolizes wisdom, integrity, and purity and it is believed it offers protection and peace to the wearer. Therefore, it should be offered to a person you love and respect.
Choosing The Shape
Nowadays, you can find necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and other jewellery items in all sorts of shapes and designs. This allows everyone to select the exact type of designs they want to wear, which inadvertently created a market for spiritual people as well.
Now, depending on a person’s beliefs, you can choose crystal pendants, as a protective amulet. Or you can choose sun-shaped earrings for someone who is always bright and cheerful. Of course, the options are endless from Yin and Yang designs to the Star of David and more.
Choosing The Metal
Ever since ancient times, metals have a special spiritual significance. Of course, the unforgiving flow of time has changed some of these spiritual attributes, but it also enriched the tales and deepened our knowledge.
Therefore, we now know that gold is the metal that represents the Sun. Moreover, this ancient metal was highly valued by many of the old civilisations so it carries a strong spiritual charge. Usually offered to the gods and mostly present around royalty and great leaders, this precious metal still holds special significance in our hearts.
On the other hand, silver is a mysterious metal associated with the power of the feminine and the Moon. It’s also one of the three base metals in Alchemy and signifies inner wisdom and self-reflection.
In our view, each piece of jewellery has a spiritual aspect to it. Whether you buy it for yourself or as a gift for Valentine’s (or any other occasions) you give it a certain emotional charge that turns into positive energy. Therefore, it’s important to put all your good thoughts and wishes when choosing such an item!
