Wearing stone and crystal jewelry is an easy, convenient, and attractive way to carry healing stones with you all the time and everywhere you go. The jewelry can be of any type, style or design. For example, it can be a crystal wrapped in wire and strung on a chain; stone beads strung together as a necklace or bracelet; even faceted gemstone jewelry can be used for crystal healing! Stones that are set in gold or silver work especially well since these metals are good conductors of energy.
The stone does not need to be of any particular size and it does not need to be worn on or near any particular area of the body, regardless of what it is being used for. For example, it is often recommended that stones used to heal conditions of the heart (physical or emotional) be worn over the heart, but this is not necessary because one's physical body is surrounded by an etheric body (an energy field which houses the chakras) that directs the stone's healing energies to the appropriate area. Therefore, any form of jewelry can be used, including: and more.
Jewelry pieces containing multiple kinds of stones generally do not work for healing as their different energies usually cancel each other out, and so most jewelry suitable for healing contain only one kind of stone. Jewelry pieces with multiple stones can be used for healing as long as the stones are all the same kind, for example: a ring with several rubies or a bracelet of amethyst beads.
However, jewelry with two different kinds of stones will work if one of the stones is transparent and colorless, such as clear quartz or diamond. In this instance, the clear stone will serve to amplify the healing effects of the other stone.
Sometimes, jewelry containing multiple varieties of stone (usually only two or three) might work for healing if the stones' energies harmonize well with each other (ie. they have very similar healing properties). Usually, however, different stones are put in the same piece of jewelry because they look good together, not because their energies harmonize.
Several different stones and crystals can be worn for healing at the same time as long as they are in separate jewelry pieces that do not touch each other.
To use your jewelry for healing, you would do the same with it as you would with any other healing stone (ie. cleanse it, charge it, program it, etc.). Smudging is the best method for cleansing the energy of your jewelry as other methods may damage it. You should cleanse and recharge your jewelry after each use, or, if it is worn regularly, it should be done daily.
