Many believe natural elements, including metal and gemstones, have healing properties. Gold is thought to have anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and calming effects. Silver is used to promote strength and stamina and fight infection and disease.
Get frequent nosebleeds? Several people who suffer from nosebleeds have cured them in an instant by holding a Rhodonite gemstone to the outside of the nose. Crazy but true! On an emotional level, gemstones have long been thought to have vast and intense power to help the wearer with a myriad of issues. Rose quartz is notoriously thought to open the heart to love and trust. Emeralds will help you be loyal, heart-centered and make choices from a place of love and compassion. Rubies are thought to conjure passion, confidence, adventure, and courage.
Whatever the topic, there is likely a gemstone that will help facilitate the desired outcome. And even if you think the idea of rocks and metal having the power to heal is woo nonsense, having the reminder of your goal is sure to lead to progress.
The heart follows the intentions we set for ourselves so jewelry can be a great regular reminder of what we are striving for in life.
Metals With Meaning
The metals that compose your jewelry hold powerful meanings, too. In many cultures, alchemists believed that every element had a physical representation and a philosophical meaning. Spiritual alchemy was strongly linked to metallurgy or transformed one base metal into another metal. Each metal had its symbol and meaning:
- Lead is governed by Saturn, related to transformation and death. Its toxicity is linked metaphorically to similar human traits and the cleansing and removal of imperfections.
- Tin is governed by Jupiter, related to wisdom, education and maturity. It’s connected to balance and meditation.
- Copper is governed by Venus and is one of the oldest metals, related to youthfulness, charisma, feminine beauty, creativity and caring. Considered a healing metal, it inspires you to live a fulfilling life.
- Silver is governed by the moon and considered a regal metal, related to self-reflection, divination, spirits, femininity, focus and subtle strength.
Jewelry Brings Ancestors To Life
Perhaps you’ve inherited your grandma’s pearls or great aunt’s wedding ring? Each time a piece of jewelry is passed from one generation to the next, it brings the stories and emotions connected to our ancestors and that’s why people rarely sell this type of Jewelry.
Re-envisioning inherited jewelry into new treasures is a fantastic way to honor the past while giving it a modern look more relatable to your style. The necklace may look different, but it still contains grandma’s pearls so every time you wear it, you’ll think of her.
Regardless if it’s redesigned or the original heirloom, the history contained in jewelry is a powerful reminder of where we come from and the people who’ve made us who we are.
