It’s February, and that can only mean one thing…Valentine’s Day. And Valentine’s Day really only means one thing…Love. So instead of beating around the bush, let’s just go there. And if you’re talking about love and jewelry, most people jump right to diamonds, but come on, there are so many other stones that are so much more suited to love. Allow me to elaborate.
If you were to do a search for Love Stones (as I did, just for giggles), the most frequent result is Rose Quartz. Not only is the color appropriate for Valentine’s Day and hearts that go along with all that, but it’s known among those that are familiar with energy properties for stones to be the stone of unconditional love.
Add chrysoprace to your rose quartz piece, and watch the jealousy dissipate. Or, try combining rose quartz with chrysocolla to calm a rocky relationship. Not only would these custom jewelry pieces look lovely together, but you’re doing good things for your love life!
(Above you see some “raw” stones…they’ve yet to be chosen to be turned into a unique piece. Any time you see raw stones, think of it as an invitation to have your own custom piece.)
I’ve mentioned moonstone in other contexts before. Here’s one more reason to love the stone…it’s known to help stoke the flames of passion (wink, wink). And if things aren’t exciting enough for you, add some rhodochrosite to add a little extra spice, as it helps promote creativity and spontaneity.
This stone helps with the self-love aspect of love. Rhodonite increases confidence and aids in forgiveness for past hurts, thereby opening up the wearer to love others more fully.
Garnets are worn by those in the know because they are attached to strong, intense feelings, as well as physical attraction. And though it’s often used as a “love stone”, historically speaking, it’s been used in war, too.
While energy workers use it to enhance spirituality, it is also used to encourage fidelity in a marriage.
May the energy of love fill you and yours this month…and beyond.
