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.
For stress: Amethyst
Amethyst is believed to have a calming energy that many other crystals do not possess, meaning it is perfect for the stressed-out among us. Having a piece of jewellery close to us throughout the day may help you to feel calmer and more centred.
For new beginnings: Moonstone
According to crystal experts, moonstone is great for those at a crossroads in their lives, as it is the crystal of new beginnings. It represents growth and strength, and boosts intuition. Moonstone has become a popular choice in jewellery for engagement rings, as it signifies taking a new step.
For strength: Tiger’s eye
Tiger’s eye is known to be a fairly fierce stone, as its name suggests. It’s said that it promotes inner confidence, self-discipline, and strength, making it perfect for difficult situations such as break-ups. Wear a tiger’s eye bracelet for a kick of confidence whenever you need one.
For wellness: Turquoise
If wellness is one of your top concerns right now, picking up a piece of turquoise jewellery may help to promote healthy habits and self-care. Turquoise energy is believed to be all about healing and renewing.
For protection: Black Tourmaline
If you’re one who feels other people’s emotions and takes on their moods easily, those in the know say that a piece of black tourmaline could help you immeasurably. The crystal apparently helps to protect you from bad energy, and to promote positive vibes instead.
For happiness: Citrine
Having a tough time and just need a boost of happiness? Try a piece of citrine crystal jewellery, which is thought to emit joy and pure happy energy. Believers in crystals say citrine is said to shine a light on even the darkest of times, no matter where you are in your life.
