I like to know the meanings of symbols, colors, numbers and even birthstones. It’s entertaining, but more than that, it fascinates me when the mystical and magical resinates with me so well. I must admit, when I find something that I want to have a special meaning for me doesn’t, it does disappoint me. But I don’t let that stop me from believing that the universe is full of magic.
I’ve found many web sites with information about birthstones. This information includes the possible era and origin of the stones, the different colors, which stone is for which month and the meanings of each stone. Some also include the zodiak sign that corresponds with each stone.
Since it’s April, the birthstone for the month is diamond. This alone shows that gemstones aren’t only meant for the month of someone’s birth. There are most likely many who don’t associate them with anything other than their beauty.
Speaking of beauty. I’ve been noticing for awhile that jewelry is being crafted in more creative ways compared to 20 years ago. Either that or I haven’t noticed the stacked rings or bracelets until a couple of years ago. In any case, jewelry has evolved through the creative designers.
Whether it’s for a birthday, an anniversary, a token of appreciation or a gift to say, “I love you”, we can be a part of the creation, in a manner of speaking. We can, for instance, choose the birthstones which reflect the favorite colors of the recipient. That might prove difficult if it’s meant as a surprise and you don’t know what they are, unless you are the recipient.
Will it be silver or gold? Or perhaps like me, they’d prefer two-toned silver and gold. I didn’t find this at Joy Jewelers, but there are still many ways in which to create the perfect piece of jewelry.
Alchemists considered the moon to be a symbol of silver and to have a feminine energy. Gold, on the other hand, has a masculine energy. Both metals, being symbols of wealth, when worn, may give a person the feeling of being rich.
Bring the two metals together and you have a balanced energy. Let silver’s emotional, sensitive, and calming energies and the powerful and optimistsic energies of gold enrich and inspire you. It’s a state of mind.
