➔ Looking for lucky charms for 2023? Check out the lucky charms for the year of the water rabbit here. 

Those celebrating know how much Chinese New Year’s Eve dinners are layered with symbolism for making the right beginnings. And I’m not just talking about the lucky food - but the power of wearing the right gemstone to keep attracting goodness into your life. 

The lucky colors for 2022 are based on the four elements of Feng Shui. Cerulean blue (water, element of 2022), fiery red (fire), mint green (wood, the primary element of the tiger) and imperial yellow (earth) are balanced by silver (metal). 

Red is always favored for ushering in the Chinese New Year. It’s said that the yang chi of the color red gets activated, attracting good fortune!

Welcoming Water Tiger into the night sky, Chinese New Year 2022 is all about creativity and innovation. The intuitive Water Tiger welcomes visions in their dreams, bearing ideas that demand flexibility and fluid thinking. Breaking away from the constraints of the Metal Ox (which excels at data and building a strong foundation), this year is an opportunity to try something outrageously out of the box and ‘so not you’. In short: go out and surprise yourself. 

Depending on where you’re at in life, different gemstones can amplify your luck factor. We’ve listed the 2022 lucky gemstones below. Which one do you vibe with most?
