From personal experience, I know it’s really easy to feel overwhelmed and confused by all the different options. No worries, I’m here to convince you, you simply can’t go wrong or make a mistake. (Your burden has been lifted!) Semi-precious gemstone bracelets are such a beautiful & meaningful way to express yourself. Seriously, I can’t even…so darn cute!

There are 5 different ways to Pick Your Perfect Gemstone Bracelet.

  1. Colour
  2. Meaning or Intention
  3. Zodiac
  4. Birthstone
  5. Throw caution to the wind and pick something random

Let’s talk about these options in a little more depth right now. Based on my experience with all of my customers, these are the leading categories you have to think about when shopping for a new semi-precious gemstone bracelet.

1. Colour

When it comes to picking the perfect semi-precious gemstone bracelet by its colour, there are a few factors to consider. First, think about the outfits you would like to wear the bracelet with. Do you have a lot of neutral colours in your wardrobe? If so, a bold and bright bracelet could be the perfect answer for adding colour to your outfit. On the other hand, if your wardrobe is already full of bright colors, a more neutral or muted gemstone bracelet might be a better choice.

While taking all of this into consideration, maybe you just like the colour green. Just a Heads-Up…There are quite a few green gemstones out there and it’s super easy to fall in love with all of them. 11 such stones pop into my mind, without scratching my head to think about it!

Ok, if I’ve convinced you to choose your favourite colour as the leading factor in how you’ll pick your perfect gemstone bracelet, stick around until the end because I’m going to share a fascinating mind-blowing statistic.

2. Meaning or Intention

Semi-precious gemstone bracelets have been used for centuries as a way of harnessing the healing properties of gemstones. Each gemstone has its own unique meaning and intention, making it a popular choice for those looking to add a little extra meaning to their accessories.

By choosing a bracelet based on its meaning or intention, you can bring a sense of purpose and intention to your everyday life.

One reason you might want to choose a semi-precious gemstone bracelet based on its meaning or intention is to promote healing and balance in your life. Many people believe that semi-precious gemstones have healing properties, such as Amethyst for stress relief or Rose Quartz for emotional healing.

By wearing a bracelet made from these gemstones, you can surround yourself with their healing energy and promote balance within your body and mind.

Another reason to choose a semi-precious gemstone bracelet based on its meaning or intention is to inspire and motivate you towards a specific goal.

For example, Citrine is believed to promote abundance and success, while Black Onyx is thought to provide strength and protection.

By wearing a bracelet made from these gemstones, you can tap into their energy and use it to help you achieve your goals and aspirations.

Choosing a semi-precious gemstone bracelet based on its meaning or intention can add an extra layer of purpose and intention to your everyday life.

Whether you are seeking healing and balance or looking to achieve specific goals, gemstones have been used for centuries to harness their unique properties and energies. By wearing a gemstone bracelet, you can tap into this ancient wisdom and bring a sense of meaning and intention to your daily routine.

You have two options…

1) Before you go to buy your bracelet, do your research on the web. You must include Pinterest in your research because it is primarily a visual search engine and you can see what the stones look like and you can match your intention to the right semi-precious gemstone. 

A great way to start your research would be to key in “What semi-precious gemstone helps with_____” OR” The best semi-precious gemstone for _____(insert the identified problem) For example,

If I had an anger issue, I’d start my search with “The Best Semi-Precious Gemstone for Anger”. The results will pop up pretty fast, so don’t feel intimidated by searching for something you deem embarrassing.

I can GUARANTEE you; thousands of people have asked for this information before you and thousands of people will seek the same answer after you. The way I see it, at least you’re making the effort to help yourself through whatever issue you have.

2) Trust the salesperson and their advice. Hopefully, they’ll know which way to steer you.

3. Zodiac

Many people believe that the alignment and position of celestial bodies at the time of their birth can influence their personalities and life paths.

Astrology is the study of this connection, and each zodiac sign is connected to particular traits and characteristics. (For a really deep dive into this philosophy, check out these blogs about all the different zodiac signs right here.)

Semi-precious gemstones are also thought to have unique properties and energies that can enhance or balance certain aspects of a person’s life. Therefore, it’s not uncommon for individuals to choose a gemstone based on their zodiac sign to amplify the positive traits and minimize the negative ones.

For example, Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, is associated with courage, passion, and leadership. Their recommended gemstone is bloodstone, a dark green stone said to enhance physical strength and vitality while promoting emotional balance and calmness. Taurus, on the other hand, is known for their practicality, stability, and love of luxury. Their gemstone is Lapis Lazuli, a blue stone associated with wisdom, truth & self-confidence.

By choosing a gemstone that aligns with their zodiac sign, individuals can tap into the power of the universe and harness their own strengths to lead a more fulfilling life.

4. Birthstone

Many people believe that wearing a gemstone that corresponds to their birth month can bring them good luck and positive energy. This is why someone might choose a semi-precious gemstone bracelet based on their birthstone.

For instance, if you were born in January, you might choose a Garnet bracelet. Garnet is thought to bring good luck and success to those born in this month. It is also believed to protect against negative energies and promote feelings of happiness and warmth.

Similarly, someone born in February might choose an Amethyst bracelet. Amethyst is treasured for its soothing and calming properties, making it a valuable choice for those who seek peace and tranquillity.

Choosing a semi-precious gemstone bracelet based on your birthstone can be a meaningful and personal way to add some sparkle to your life. Whether you believe in the healing powers of gemstones or simply appreciate their beauty, a birthstone bracelet is an elegant and ageless accessory that you can cherish for years to come. 

Imagine the brownie points you’d score if you bought your loved one or a hard-to-shop-for co-worker a semi-precious gemstone bracelet based on their birthstone. #bestpartnerever #bestcoworkerever #treasuredkeepsake

5. Throw Caution to the Wind and Pick Something Random

Well, if we are being honest, it’s not really throwing caution to the wind, is it? I think it is actually you using your intuition, and that is a really cool thing. You gotta trust it!

Choosing a semi-precious gemstone bracelet based on intuition can be a unique and personal experience.

Often, people choose gemstones based on their individual beliefs and experiences. Intuition is a powerful tool that is often used to guide us towards things that are beneficial for us. When it comes to gemstones, many people believe that certain stones can provide a variety of benefits.

For example, Kiwi Jasper can support you during stressful times and delivers tranquillity, wholeness & healing while Ocean Jasper has the power to remind you that whatever you need from the Universe, you should send out into it first, with loving intention.

Another reason why someone might pick a semi-precious gemstone bracelet based on intuition is because of the visual appeal of the stone.

Gemstones come in a variety of colors and patterns, and some people are naturally drawn to certain types of stones. Wearing a bracelet that features a gemstone that resonates with you on a personal level can be a way to express your individuality and unique style.

Furthermore, some people believe that the energy of a stone can be amplified when it is worn in a piece of jewelry, making it an even more powerful tool.

A lot of people choose to pick a semi-precious gemstone bracelet based on intuition simply because it feels right to them. Trusting your intuition can lead to positive outcomes and a sense of personal empowerment. By wearing a gemstone bracelet that you feel drawn to, it can also serve as a visual reminder to trust your intuition and follow your heart.

Whether you believe in the metaphysical properties of gemstones or not, choosing a piece of jewelry based on intuition can be a meaningful and personal experience.

So many of my clients come to my home-based business with no idea of what they want. And that’s okay! I get really excited because I get an opportunity to help boost their confidence by telling them to trust their instincts & intuition. You’d probably be pretty surprised by how many people give out a huge sigh of relief.

It’s very common for me to leave the room so they can explore the jewelry without feeling like they have to hurry. (That’s important!) 

If you’re just looking for something pretty, that’s great too. BUT hold onto your socks because this is where sh*t gets really interesting!

Follow along with me here…If a bracelet really catches your eye, and you keep going back to it, try it on. If you can’t take your eyes off it and nothing else compares to it, buy it! 

I’ve had many clients pick a bracelet this way, only to discover the meaning of the gemstone really resonates with them in that moment in time. I keep a reference guidebook close by for this reason. 

Kellie’s mum had had her eye on one of my bracelets that was for sale and couldn’t take her eyes off of it. She hummmed and hahhhhhed over it for a hot minute and decided to buy it. After buying it, the meaning of all of the gemstones was revealed and it really hit home and it turned out to be exactly what she needed to help her through a situation at that time.

(Just a quick sidebar here: you must have confidence in what your salesperson is telling you because if you don’t, I think you might feel a bit ‘Sold’ to. Trust me when I say when you get home, you might not love the bracelet quite as much as you did when you first tried it on and there’s nothing worse than that! Which will eventually, probably sooner rather than later mean you won’t want to wear the bracelet as much as you thought you would. Does that make sense? I hope so.)

Q: How do I know what size bracelet to buy?

A: To determine your bracelet size, measure your wrist with a dressmaker’s flexible measuring tape or a piece of string. Carefully place the tape or string around your wrist.
