How to wear and care for your jewelry

The left side of your body, which is seen as the feminine side, deals with your internal self. It is also your most sensitive side. It receives energy from outside your body and helps you make positive “shifts” that best benefit you internally. When you wear certain gemstones on your left wrist you can consciously control and modify stresses from your outside environment. Your left side is all about the change you want to make inside. To send healing energies through the body wear the bracelets on the left wrist.


In contrast, your right side, which is also seen as the masculine side of your body, is your “doer” or “action” side. When you wear gems on your right wrist, the gemstones aid in your productivity and control the energy you put into your outside environment. Your right side is more about how you take action in the world outside. To release toxins from the body and align your Chakras wear the bracelets on the right wrist.


To get the best energetic benefit from your gemstone jewelry you simply need to find the correct balance between your left and right sides (similar to the ancient Chinese concept of yin and yang energy – light vs. dark, slow vs. fast, soft vs. hard, internal vs. external, etc.). You can do this by wearing gemstone bracelets on your left and right wrists in specific combinations to help you better achieve what you desire.


Gem necklaces and bracelets provide stone medicine by transmitting specific electromagnetic impulses from the minerals to the parts of the body, emotions, thoughts and dreams that need healing attention. Wear them at crisis moments, during the night while sleeping or at specific periods of the day when symptoms are at their worst to feel relief. Some necklaces are best worn as chokers around the throat while others work better in longer strands. Some minerals will work immediately, others will require longer wearing periods to become fully effective.

To clear your necklaces or bracelets of congestion and debris place them on a bed of salt and they will renew themselves. Do not wash them under water if string was used to make them will as they will eventually break. Remember to program your necklaces and bracelets with your intentions and they will gladly work with you on healing and regeneration.
