THE MAGIC OF COLORED
THE COLORS YOU SURROUND YOURSELF WITH EVERY DAY HAVE A POWERFUL ENERGY THAT GOES BEYOND STYLE AND SELF-EXPRESSION GEMSTONES
ecause gemstones are created by nature, people have always believed they have a special energy and mystical properties. Belief in gem powers has existed for nearly 5,000 years. Depending on the era and the civilization, colored stones have been associated with wealth, power, love, safety, and wellbeing. Some people think gem lore is silly — how could a simple rock have such power? I would argue that wearing a beautiful gemstone has the power to promote
emotional wellbeing and strength just by making you feel beautiful and powerful. Gemstones allow us to illuminate our individual spirits and express our sense of style. Everyone responds to color, and each hue works its own special, secret magic. From amethyst and garnet to the finest rubies and emeralds, jewelry designers are constantly finding new ways of conveying that power. Here are some recent examples and a glimpse into the special magic of gem colors.
YELLOW YELLOW IS THE MOST LUMINOUS OF ALL THE COLORS OF THE SPECTRUM. IT’S THE COLOR OF HAPPINESS, AND OPTIMISM, OF ENLIGHTENMENT AND CREATIVITY, SUNSHINE AND SPRING. YELLOW AS A FAVORITE COLOR IS SAID TO REPRESENT HAPPINESS AND A LOVE OF LEARNING. YOU PROBABLY LOVE TO EXPRESS YOUR INDIVIDUALITY BY CREATING NEW IDEAS AND SHARING YOUR COLLECTED KNOWLEDGE WITH OTHERS, AND MIGHT HAVE A DEEP NEED FOR LOGICAL ORDER IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE.
