The Story Behind Gemstones: Exploring The Meaning and Properties
As you may know, every gemstone carries different metaphysical properties, all of which aim to heal and protect your body, mind, and soul. Knowing and understanding the meanings of each gemstone will guide you to the most beneficial gem for you or a loved one. At Britt Bolton, we incorporate a variety of gemstones in our jewelry including, blue sapphire, green tourmaline, red garnet, peridot, diamond, and smoky quartz/topaz. In this post we will add links to Britt's favorite handmade rings with said gemstones.
Blue sapphire: The blue sapphire is a gem that represents spiritual insight, good judgment, and strength. The stone can bring good fortune in ways such as protection and enhancing self-expression. Blue sapphire specifically connects to the throat chakra, meaning that it will uplift your ability to voice and empower your true self. https://brittbolton.com/collections/rings-handpieces/products/sapphire-cluster-oval-signet
Green tourmaline: Green tourmaline’s main purpose is to circulate healing energy throughout the body. One way it does that is by relaxing your nervous system. Some wear green tourmaline to lessen anxiety or to promote healthy sleep patterns. This gem also represents the heart chakra, the part of you that is responsible for balancing emotions, creating a deeper self-awareness, and building strong relationships. https://brittbolton.com/collections/rings-handpieces/products/slick-gemstone-signet-light-green-tourmaline
Red garnet: The red garnet symbolizes love, as its purpose is to encourage warmth, loyalty, and honesty in relationships. It can also control anger in oneself, which allows forgiveness and communication. In other words, this crystal relaxes the nervous system which calms your emotions and allows you to view your relationships from a place of peace rather than rage. This gem is connected to the sacral chakra which represents creativity and sexuality.https://brittbolton.com/collections/rings-handpieces/products/snake-signet-garnet-1
Peridot: Peridot’s purpose is to bring peace and compassion to yourself and to your relationships. Having balance and peace will cause good health and restful sleep which in turn benefits all aspects of your life. This gem aligns to the heart and solar plexus chakras which governs our deeper sense of self and confidence. https://brittbolton.com/collections/rings-handpieces/products/floating-gemstone-signet
Diamond: Diamonds are most commonly associated with love, however, the gem also purifies the body and brain, and enhances stamina and strength. This gemstone connects to the crown chakra, which can uplift and inspire you. https://brittbolton.com/collections/rings-handpieces/products/14k-crucifix-oval-signet
Smoky quartz/topaz: Smoky quartz, also known as smoky topaz, can provide grounding and protective energy which aligns with the root chakra. It can also bring courage and calmness to light. https://brittbolton.com/collections/rings-handpieces/products/slick-gemstone-signet-smokey-topaz
Although each gemstone carries healing properties, it does not immediately fix said problems, rather it encourages inner healing. It is also important to remember that charging and wearing your gems frequently can allow its properties to become more powerful.
