1. Necklaces

Raw crystal necklace

Some of the most sought-after pieces of healing gemstone jewelry are, without a doubt, necklaces. Healers and crystal lovers alike adore necklaces designed with their favorite gemstone to wear even on a daily basis. Many people choose to hang their preferred stone from a thin, silver chain, whereas others enjoy necklaces made entirely out of beads.

From a healing point of view, the properties and effects of the gemstone depend on the length of the necklace. If your piece rests at the base of your collar bone, it enhances your throat chakra and focuses upon developing the skills connected to it. That means that you are promoting open communication, imagination and creativity. It is also a great point for the energy from your gemstone to communicate with the rest of your chakras and your entire body.

If your chain is slightly longer and hangs in the area of your heart chakra, it means that it will help you develop beautiful values such as love, care, nurturing, calmness, confidence and open-heartedness. In addition to this, it helps you gain self-awareness and to take control of your requirements, needs and desires.

“Will you marry me?” These are the four words that any girl waits a lifetime to hear. Most engagement or wedding rings are made from diamonds, which are actually one of the most powerful crystals that exist on our planet (both from a physical point of view and a spiritual viewpoint). When it comes to crystal healing, diamonds represent prosperity, wealth and evolution.

If you are feeling particularly anxious or are very afraid of something, a diamond might help you feel better. Although diamonds, in particular, are known to enhance all of the chakras, it has an extra special effect on the crown chakra.

5. Earrings

According to Reiki and energy work teacher Peggy L. Jentoft, “earrings can help balance throat, neck and head energies”. Healing gemstone jewelry in the form of earrings can be worn in several different ways: as small studs with your favorite semi-precious or precious stones, long earrings with gemstones at the bottom, earrings with pendants attached, or hoop earrings with tiny gemstones all around the circles.

Like in the case of all healing crystals, you should choose your gemstones for earrings according to your needs and general purpose. Make sure that you always purchase your earrings from a reliable source for healing crystals.  If you want to enjoy a special boost of healing energy, you can choose to buy a set of earrings and a matching necklace with the same gemstone.

6. Anklets

Like in the case of bracelets, anklets as pieces of healing gemstone jewelry also have a positive effect on the body, mind and soul. You can opt for an ankle charm bracelet or one made out of beads, depending on your preferences. Ankle bracelets with healing gemstones are great for wearing during the summer, as you also enjoy energy from the sun during the day or from the moon during the night as you walk

Editors Note: If someone else touches your crystal jewelry, even if it’s just for taking a quick look, you need to cleanse your crystals (especially if you suspect those people to have less than positive vibes towards you). For cleansing crystals, you need to at least wash your crystals under clean water (ie, ocean, natural stream, faucet water) for 3-5 minutes, dry them under the sunlight, or you should keep them in a saline solution for at least 3 days before gradually starting to wear them again.
