Today this ancient belief is bolstered by the theories of colour psychology and crystal healing. The theory of crystal healing is that wearing the right gemstone will help focus your mind and allow you to make the best use of any good fortune that crosses your path. Crystal healing is surprisingly popular, especially in the West. It’s also not totally unfamiliar to us here in Singapore, because fengshui practitioners have used crystals for years, and Chinese horoscopes assign lucky colours to each zodiac sign.
However, fengshui beliefs about gemstones and colour psychology theories are slightly different. In fengshui certain gemstones are used to amplify your good fortune and “fill in” weak areas of your zodiac chart. This means you can wear a different gemstone every year, depending on your individual zodiac sign.
With colour psychology, the main takeaway is that colours can evoke certain emotions. For example, cool colours like blue and green can make you feel calm, while warm colours like yellow and red can amplify happiness or anger. So wearing jewellery in those colours helps you maximise your good moods, and minimise your bad moods.
For this article, we’re focusing on jewellery colours that you should be wearing according to your emotions. And we’ll look a little at fengshui theories of gemstones as well, so you can choose your best jewellery for 2022. Hey, it’s always nice to have an excuse to look at gorgeous jewellery, right?
