Custom Jewelry Made Easy Pt. 3: Gemstones with Intention

This is the third part of the Custom Jewelry Made Easy series. In part 1 you got to experiment with colors and in part 2 you learned how to design with elements


This time, we’re getting personal. It requires you to look within yourself and ask, “what really matters to me? What do I want to focus on now?”


We spend our days giving. Our time to work, our heart to loved ones and our seat on a bus to an elderly man, after an 8 hour shift standing. 


But we also need to give something to ourselves. A chance to be creative. Some time to be alone. A moment to grow. A second to figure out what we want in our lives. 


Sometimes you need a little nudge. A reminder to keep yourself focused on what it is you want from life. That’s where Shop by Intentions comes in. Jewelry turned into physical manifestations of the hopes and dreams you’ve been nurturing. 

Whether you believe in the healing powers of gemstones or not, they can be helpful for you to take a little time for yourself and breathe. Can crystals and stones really help your anxiety? It's likely the placebo effect, but as a visual reminder of the intentions you’ve set it works.


Head over to our Intentions page to find the perfect jewelry to find your intentions.

CHARGE YOUR GEMSTONES AND SUPPORT YOUR INTENTIONS 


1. Set your intention 

Choose the one thing you want or need for yourself right now. Maybe it’s an area of your life you want to improve, maybe it’s a dream you want to achieve. 


2. Find the gems that match your intentions

When you’ve set your intention, connect with its corresponding gemstone, and with the specific energy your new-found bestie garners. 


3. Cleanse your gemstones

Cleansing your stone is a meditative act that helps set the mood. It helps kickstart the moment in your heart and in your mind. It also helps to make sure the gemstone is at its finest to give and receive the energy. 


The simplest way to do so (without damaging the jewelry you’ve chosen) is by doing breathwork. Hold the stone in your dominant hand, close your eyes and focus on your intention. 


Taking the time to clean your jewelry can be a relaxing ritual, why not make a day out of it?

Inhale deeply and bring the gemstone closer to your face, and exhale. Your conscious breath to the stone gives the strongest vibration.


Don't forget to clean your jewelry too. Make sure you don’t use harsh chemicals to clean it. You only need warm water, mild soap, and a soft brush. 


(Psst, we’ve put together a luxury eco friendly jewelry cleaning kit for you!)

When you care for your gemstones, you also care for yourself. Your intentions and the stone’s energy will flow harmoniously.

4. Create your own ritual

Use rituals to be reminded of your intentions. It’ll help you actively acknowledge your intention and give you a reminder to pursue it in other areas of your life too. You can make a ritual you feel is most effective and meaningful for you. 


Meditation helps you clear your mind, and incorporating a gemstone ritual while you’re meditating can be extra calming. You can hold your stone or jewelry in your hands while you meditate or just put them near you. Allow the gemstone to move deeper into your meditative state and connect you to your intention.


If you’re not into meditation, you can do other things too. Try holding your jewelry in your hands, clear yourself of any unwanted thoughts, and speak your intentions out loud. For instance, if you wish to find love, take a ruby or a piece of ruby jewelry, hold it close to your heart, and focus on your desires around relationships. 


Doing rituals regularly helps remind you of what you want from life.

5. Revisit and Reset


Keep your jewelry close to you and wear them whenever you can. Revisit and reset your intentions once in a while, because your intentions may change over time. The jewelry you wear can be a constant reminder of your journey. Stay conscious of your goals! 


Remember that life is a meandering walk with plenty of sights to enjoy, not a sprint where everything becomes a blur.
