Angel jewelry has been worn by men and women since before recorded history and much of it has more significance than simple adornment. The precious stones and metals used to create these pieces often are associated with beneficial effects on the body and mind.
Each of these stones has specific properties that have a calming effect on the wearer and are often used to open the mind and chakras for healing, visions and celestial travel. Many of these stones have been used in their native lands by spiritual leaders and healers to bring peace and comfort to people struggling with emotional burdens.
Aside from the spiritual power inherent in some of the precious stones and gems, jewelry that represents a spiritual figure or concept is also important to the well-being of the person wearing it. There are rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets that represent the cross of Christ, the Star of David, the holy sound Om, Buddha, the Sikh Khanda, and other eastern gods and goddesses, the tasbihand even a variety of wiccan symbols that often bring comfort and provide a tie to the religious practices of the owner.
Some people wear words representative of their beliefs such as ‘faith’ that can refer to many religions. Other, less obvious spiritual jewelry may be basically plain but have an engraving of a word or symbol on the inside.
While there is naturally a spiritual element to all religions, not all people who consider themselves spiritual are adherents to any particular faith. There are many pieces of angel jewelry that represent our connection to nature, the universe and some type of higher power without being associated with an actual religious denomination. This practice seems to be growing and represents the need for individuals to connect with something outside of themselves that directs the actions of the universe and helps us define our place within it.
It may be considered a bit of a paradox that people concerned with their spiritual health condone the use of material representation but unless someone has achieved Nirvana or the faith of a saint, a reminder of our beliefs and hopes seems to be a perfectly natural thing. It does not have to be bold, and in fact, many people wear this type of angel jewelry virtually undetected because it is a personal choice. No matter what the system of belief, the boost spiritual jewelry can provide its wearer can be immeasurable when confronting the struggles of daily life.
