How to wear crystal jewellery, from rose quartz to citrine

Crystals have certainly taken their place in the cultural hall of fame in the past few years, with self-care and holistic health trends more popular than ever. They are the go-to healing therapy for A-list celebrities including Adele and Miranda Kerr, and more spas than ever before now offer crystal treatments. So what’s all the fuss about?

‘Whether you need a confidence boost before a presentation or to mend a broken heart, there’s a crystal to support and heal you,’ claims Emma Lucy Knowles, author of The Power of Crystal Healing.

And the good news is that you no longer need to keep your crystals stashed away at home. Crystal jewellery is the hottest accessory right now, and a number of brands are utilising their supposed healing and aesthetic powers to create stunning pieces to adorn your neck, wrist, ears or fingers. Wearing a crystal is said to utilise its power in a particularly effective way.

From super affordable buys on Etsy to pieces by some of our favourite mid-range jewellery brands like Otiumberg and Missoma, there are plenty of options for all budgets and for tastes. Here are a few of our favourite pieces of crystal jewellery to shop now.

For love: Rose quartz

Unsurprisingly, rose quartz is the crystal of love. If you’re struggling with your love life, and are hoping to meet someone or connect deeper than you have been able to, rose quartz is said to be the stone to reach for, promoting compassion, warmth, and tenderness. Wearing a rose quartz necklace near your heart is a great option.
