I believe in sacred adornment – in the process of choosing your jewelry with care and intention. Which gems you select and why, on which day, these things matter. Because when we wear jewelry, we invoke the elements and energies of the stones with which we adorn ourselves, especially since they are in contact with our skin all day. I often wear my gemstone jewelry until it literally falls off. In my tradition, that’s how we know the ‘medicine’ of the gems has worked.
