Need a little comfort these days? Some find that wearing enduring spiritual jewelry helps!
By Uma Campbell
There are many types of jewelry carriers. There are those who like old rooms steeped in history, for example. They feel that each piece tells a story. Others want to make a more ostentatious statement and could buy some great Rolex watches from Watchbox to make an impression. Many people buy jewelry because it’s fashionable. And still others prefer to wear enduring spiritual jewelry brands. And there are several reasons for this.
One is comfort. Believers want to wear rosaries, for example, because of their devotion to prayer and spiritual contemplation. Crosses and Stars of David are worn to indicate specific beliefs.
More general beliefs, such as the fact that we are one, are expressed through symbols such as the Flower of Life. Crystals and gemstones are worn to enhance the protection of the person wearing the jewelry. The ruby, for example, would bring protection and energy to the body, while the diamond would purify your mental state. Gold rings are believed to attract and activate divine consciousness within the body, while gold chains attract energy waves.
For centuries (if not more), many people have believed in the benefits to wear spiritual jewelry. These include reduce negative energy in the body, provide protection from negative energy attacks, increase personal power and energy, and general spiritual healing and cleansing.
With ancient history supporting the notion of spiritual jewelry, and with many people swearing by it, it’s no wonder it has remained so popular over time. But if any of the types of jewelry mentioned above aren’t ethically sourced… well, it’s hard to call them “spiritual,” if you ask me!
Here are some of our favorite enduring spiritual jewelry brands to help you choose the pieces that can bring the right kind of energy to your soul.

What makes sense to you? Is this a lucky number? A certain symbol?
Throughout history and across the world, jewelry has been worn for its amuletic properties. A fascination with the power and tradition of jewelry has always been at the heart of Anna’s work and in recognition of this she strives to create a collection that explores these most personal symbols for all of us.
Putting ethical provenance at the heart of what she does, Anna is proud to be one of the first Fairtrade gold licensees in the UK and as such has seen her pieces bespoke and ethically sourced on the Hollywood red carpet, as well as numerous jewelry industry accolades and awards.
By using Sacred Seeds necklaces, individual pieces literally made from sacred seeds such as Lotus, Rudracksha, Bodhi and Tulsi, this brand hopes to challenge people’s perception of what is precious.
Each Sacred Seed necklace is labeled with a recycled silver ‘T’ and comes packaged in a handmade Lotka box in an organic cotton drawstring bag. Enclosed is a story of the seed used in this particular necklace or rosary, and a wildflower seed paper, allowing the recipient to grow their own little meadow as a lasting keepsake.
We especially love the Story Keeper jewelry, which features a silver tube that holds the words that mean something to you: a note from a loved one, a prayer, or a Bible verse, for example.
All Totem seeds come from a locally owned sustainable organic plantation in Bali.
Buddha Mama is a line of handmade jewelry inspired by Buddhism and Eastern traditions. This mother and daughter started brand also employs close friends and family to help run the business in a way that feels more like a family reunion than a job!
In addition to creating highly spiritual themed jewelry, Buddha Mama always donates to Zen Village and Kristi House, a non-profit center that serves the needs of child victims of sexual abuse and human trafficking.
