As a Libra I’ve always been attracted to beautiful things, so naturally shiny colourful rocks and minerals that come from mother nature have always appealed to me. I started looking into crystals for healing and magic when I was in my teens, around the same time I began to realise that Christianity really wasn’t for me and I was introduced to Paganism. It didn’t take long for me to recognise that my spiritual and personal beliefs were more aligned to Paganism, and for many years now I have identified as a solitary neo-pagan practitioner. As discussed in the past jewellery is very significant to me and has been with me throughout my life, so naturally I tend to mix a bit of spirituality into my jewellery searching. This means that I love browsing vibrant and unique gemstone jewellery.Jewellery is very significant to me and has been with me throughout my life, so naturally I tend to mix a bit of spirituality into my jewellery searching.

Fiorelli Silver Round Lavender Chalcedony Pave Pendant
Chalcedony is a stone that comes in many colours, and each time it never loses it’s lovely frosted hue. It’s a beautiful pastel stone that has an ethereal look to it as can be seen in this pendant by Fiorelli. Encased by a ring of cubic cironca the otherworldly Lavendar Chalcedony is emphasised by this simple frame. It’s available from The Jewel Hut for £90.00.
9K Rose Gold AAA Marropino Morganite
Morganite is a stone that came to my attention over the holidays when I saw it advertised in so many stores. It has such a unique husky pink hue that is such a sweet colour without being too overpowering. This lovely trinity ring is the perfect way to wear this lovely gemstone and it’s yours for £134.99.
Natural Turkizite Platinum and Gold Overlay 925 Silver Ring
Quite similar to Morganite, Turkizite is another sheer stone that adds just a flush of colour to a piece of jewellery. It’s translucent chocolate brown colour looks great alongside bolder shades of gold or green hued stones like peridot. The design of this gorgeous ring features gold entwined between the stones to create a statement piece. At a wonderful 60% off right now, grab it at £80.00 from The Jewellery Channel!
Labradorite Woven Pearl Necklace
One of my favourite stones of all time Labradorite is one that you need to physically see to really behold its beauty. It glimmers and shines in the light with its multi-faceted surface shining with hundreds of colours. It can appear to be dark blue as it does here, nearer to black or closer to a dark bottle green. Every item made with Labradorite holds many wonders within though so it is the perfect gift for someone loves nature and mysteries of the universe. This lovely necklace with pearls woven onto the labradorite is £86 from Not on the High Street.#A favourite of mine Labradorite is one that you need to physically see to really behold its beauty.

Sterling Silver Triple Moonstone Teardrop Earrings
In a way you could consider Moonstone to be Labradorite’s cousin; it is dark just as moonstone is light. As you would expect from a stone named after the moon it is a delightful stone that shimmers like the moon in the sky. Not to be confused with Opal, Moonstone is more translucent and milky with a blue hue, where as Opal is iridescent. Moonstone is a great stone for women who like delicate jewellery and have a quieter style. These lovely teardrop earrings are available from Not on the Highstreet for £35.Moonstone is a great stone for women who like delicate jewellery and have a quieter style.

Dalmatian Jasper Bar Pendant Necklace
It’s pretty obvious how this one got it’s name isn’t it? 😉 There are many types of Jasper, however, I’ve always thought it simply marvellous that nature has created something that looks like this. It’s definitely not something that most people will have ever heard so if you’re looking for a gift for someone who has everything then this might just be it! It’s also a great idea for animal lovers too. It’s available from Not on the High Street for £32.50.
Aventurine Crescent Moon Gemstone Necklace
Aventurine is a lovely shade of teal that always reminds me of the wind and the sea. It has a calming presence, and this lovely crescent cut necklace would be a great gift for someone with a bohemian sense of style. It’s available in a variety of metals from Not on the High Street for £31.00.
Rose Gold Drop Rose Quartz Pyramid Earrings
What better way to say you care about someone than the gemstone of love itself?
