Jewelry of Semi-Precious
Stones: Stylish Things of Beauty
by: Sam Serio
Want to make or wear impressive costume jewelry, but running on a tight
budget? Using semi-precious stones is one good way to achieve this. These stones
come in a wide variety and are highly accessible to almost everyone.
Semi-precious stones preserve the effect of sophistication. Many pieces of
jewelry made of these stones are pleasant to look at without seeming opulent.
Depending on one's own taste and fashion sense, these gemstones have the
greatest potential to enhance one's personal sense of style.
Some semi-precious stones are also birthstones, which correspond to people's
birth months. Some people believe that wearing stones that correspond with one's
birth month increases one's inner strength. This special trait makes jewelry
made of certain semi-precious birthstones especially useful as gifts. Examples
of such birthstones are garnet (January) and aquamarine (March).
Another popular belief is that certain stones have their own unique "powers."
For example, wearing garnet is said to help ease the pain of a bad breakup, or
cause jealousy between lovers. Amethyst is said to protect its wearer against
the ill effects of alcohol, slow down intoxication and prevent hangovers.
Turquoise is said to give emotional strength. Jade has always had enormous
importance in Asian civilization; it is said to have the mystical power to
protect its wearer against nightmares and other psychic attacks.
Quartz is said to be among the most important of the semi-precious stones,
because it calls upon the power of love -- especially the rare rose quartz.
Wearing rose quartz is said to increase one's chances of finding or maintaining
a good romantic relationship.
Some pieces of bead jewelry are also made of semi-precious stones. The stones
are threaded together with cords, making fine webs and accentuating intricate
designs. Jewelry made of semi-precious stones is always popular, partly because
of the beliefs associated with the stones -- but mostly because they're so
pretty and can go well with anything one wears.
