Finding Gorgeous Jewelry Pieces

A Colorful Gemstone For Your Jewelry Piece May Relieve Stress

by Barry Graves

You have found the perfect jewelry piece, but is your piece complete without the perfect accent stone? Choosing the right stone or stones for your jewelry deals with your own personal likes and dislikes. But you should also keep in mind that the color you choose can have some mood-enhancing properties. Believe it or not, the color of your gemstone can help you calm down in a stressful environment.

Stress-Relieving Stones: The Science Behind Colors

Several studies have shown a strong connection between colors and your emotions. For instance, red can elevate your heart rate and generally make you feel more alert. This color could be helpful for an athlete or someone who needs to stay alert on their job. But red will not help you if you are stressed, as it could elevate your emotions and encourage anger. 

The following are a few colors that you can consider instead for your choice of gemstone. The following colors have been shown to calm you down:

Blue: Blue has been found to be one of the most calming colors, producing the opposite reaction that red does. The color evokes thoughts of blue skies or the ocean. You may reduce stress just by looking at your gemstone. This stone will also be helpful if your job is demanding. You should consider any of the following gems:

  • Sapphire
  • Tanzanite
  • Topaz
  • Zircon
  • Aquamarine

Green: Green is another color to consider. The reason that green works is that it may remind you of the tranquility of trees. The natural color of green may also remind those around you of nature. Green also has a calming effect on you because it is the easiest color on your eyes. 

You can consider the following gems:

  • Emerald
  • Tourmaline
  • Garnet
  • Jade
  • Peridot

Pink: One last color to consider is pink. Pink is a soft and tender color that can help you calm down in intense situations. Pink causes the brain to feel relaxed, and it also relaxes your muscles. 

You can consider any of the following gemstones:

  • Pink sapphire
  • Spinel
  • Rose quartz
  • Kunzite
  • Morganite

Remember, you can mix stones to increase the effect of your jewelry piece. Be sure to consider a nice, visible size for the gemstone you choose. If you chose a ring or bracelet, this will be easy to see. All you have to do is just glance at your ring or bracelet when you feel a little stressed.
