Gemstone Symbolism in the Modern Day

Gemstone Symbolism in the Modern Day

During ancient times, gemstones were mainly used for their healing and metaphysical properties. Today, gemstones are used in fashion and as a form of self-expression. The values it holds from the past still positively impact our way of life today. A modern-day woman values self-love and self-care, and to achieve this, the values that gemstones symbolise are essential as they guide a fulfilling and happy life.


1. Honesty

Honesty is being true to yourself and knowing who you are. Blue is the colour that symbolises this virtue. It also embodies other virtues such as peace, wisdom, and loyalty. Two of the gemstones that have this colour and represent these virtues are Blue Lace Agate and Lapis Lazuli.

Blue Lace Agate is a gemstone that symbolises peace, reminding you of the importance of being honest with yourself to find inner peace and have a peaceful life. Lapis Lazuli is a stone of wisdom and truth, inspiring you to embrace the truth you will discover about yourself. So, wearing jewellery with these gemstones, just like our Blue Lace Agate & 14K Gold Grace Beaded Bracelet and Lapis Lazuli & 14K Rose Gold Trinity Beaded Bracelet, will inspire you to be honest with yourself.

Here are the positive affirmations to inspire honesty in your life:

  • I am confident enough to be true to myself.
  • I am strong enough to handle the truth.
  • Life is full of joy when I am honest with myself.
  • I know things will improve if I admit how things are now.
  • There is no good in hiding from the truth.

Being honest with yourself will boost your self-esteem, making you more confident. If you are not honest with yourself, you will not know what you want to achieve and who you want to be. This will result in following what other people tell you instead of following your dreams. Be honest with yourself to live the life you want.


2. Growth

Growth is one of the values that a modern-day woman lives by. It is getting out of your comfort zone to grow personally and professionally. The colour green symbolises this value. Emerald, Burmese Jade, Green Hair Jasper, and Moss Agate are some of the gemstones that have a green colour.

The green colour also represents green pasture, meaning you aim for prosperity or abundance. A piece of jewellery with green gemstones, like our Emerald & 14K Gold Empress Adjustable Beaded Bracelet, will inspire you to invest in your personal growth. You are your best investment, so having a special time with yourself is essential as it will help you grow into a better, wiser, and stronger person.

  • Expanding your network because your network is your net worth.
  • Participate in community programs.
  • Learn something new every day.
  • Developing your knowledge and skills.
  • Knowing yourself better.

Growth starts with the right mindset, and it requires discipline. It is one of the foundations of success that will lead us to a happier and more prosperous life.


3. Self-Empowerment

Self-empowerment is making your own decisions and taking control of your life. Obsidian is a gemstone that symbolises protection. It will encourage you to protect yourself from negativity and toxicity to achieve self-empowerment. Surround yourself with positive people and create an environment that sets you up for success.

Self-love is appreciating, loving, accepting, and respecting oneself. It is embracing who you are and being happy for yourself. Pink is the colour that symbolises self-love. It is also associated with other virtues such as compassion, kindness, warmth, and tenderness. Rose quartz is one of the gemstones with this colour and symbolises unconditional love.

Our Madagascan Rose Quartz & 14K Gold Grace Beaded Bracelet will inspire you to love yourself unconditionally. Having unconditional love for yourself is loving yourself inside and outside. Embrace all your flaws, do the things that make you happy, and have a high regard for your happiness and well-being.

Self-love is not just a trend in this contemporary time; it is a need that must be incorporated into everyday life to have a happier life.


5. Courage

Courage is the ability to manage fear. It is not the absence of fear but being brave enough to face anything that comes your way.
