ELEMENTS AND GEMS

Our Universe is made up of multitude of elements – where five of the most known one, representing forces of nature are Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Aether (the 5th ELEMENT). We, Humans, do not simply exist in Universe – the universe exists in us, with ELEMENTS taking a large role in our culture, traditions and personal behavior.

 

 

There is a common belief that elements can harmonize us and our living space to help achieve a desired outcome such as good health, prosperity, love and fortune etc.

Precious metals and gems so belovingly used in jewelry come from deep within the earth, bringing elements of the universe with them, helping us absorb elemental forces and transforming some of our jewelry into the powerful talismans.

There is a cross-cultural belief that elements and gemstones can affect and shape our personality as well as influence an outcome of our actions.  We know which elements influence us the most through widely popular astrological charts and whilst we can wear a multitude of gemstones to suit our style, mood and personality, the gems have the most power when they align with our birth elements, making the jewelry that’s aligned with the elements and gems most powerful in helping one focus on the direction of empowerment and personal “True North”.
