How wearing jewellery can boost your confidence

Many items of jewellery are said to help reduce stress – think of worry beads as just one example; or the simple Rosary: Whether Catholic, Islamic, Buddhist, or Hindu, most are based on faith.

And this is the principal behind Confidence Jewellery . . imparting a belief that, with a little bit of faith, one’s wishes can come true – giving strength of purpose to everyday actions to achieve a goal.

Jewellery to give me confidence

The point about Confidence Jewellery is that its sole purpose it to boost self-esteem and give more confidence to the person wearing it . . a Confidence Bracelet for example, Confidence Earrings or Confidence Necklaces .

Of course there is a lot of jewellery based on faith, like the Christian Cross for example, or Angel charms, the Hamsa, the Caravaca Cross, and so on, but in our SHOP you will find Confidence Jewellery based on the Shell symbol: The shell has great significance in the Christian faith: The scallop shell in particular is the badge of Baptism, the symbol of The Way of St. James – and the shell’s close association with this Camino de Santiago has propelled it to be the symbol of pilgrimage too.

Give yourself confidence

A shell is also said to symbolise strength, commitment and determination along the journey of life; in this sense, it has special meaning to millions of people, and is commonly-used in jewellery to help individuals feel more secure and confident about themselves.

The sea shell in particular is known for its so-called protective qualities, stemming from its ability to provide a safe haven in the dangerous environment of the seas. It is this connection that also leads it to being a symbol of a strong will . . defiant and even stubborn – unmoved by the tides, the winds, and by the adverse currents of life.

Confidence and self-esteem jewellery

It is all these associations that has led the humble shell to be linked to the feeling of self-confidence, and this can be a great asset in the world in which we live, making people feel more happy about themselves, content about their resistance to stress, and their ability to overcome their worries. All this can improve someone’s performance, allowing them to be stronger against the adversities of life. Heightened self-confidence can also make people more adventurous – more willing to try out new things.

Most of our Jewellery for Confidence features the shell symbol

Something to give me confidence

An elevated sense of confidence and self-worth comes from having a belief in yourself – and this self-belief and increased self-esteem can be enhanced by wearing Confidence Jewellery, being something to believe in . . and acting as a powerful aide memoir to one’s personal goals and wishes.

INDALO for PROSPERITY, wealth, success and luck

Friends, loved-ones, relatives in debt? Short of money? Struggling financially? We have gifts that could perhaps help people cope with financial difficulties

Jewellery for prosperity and success

It is always difficult when financial problems arise but, with one of our Indalo Próspero good luck gifts, you are able to pass on your wishes of prosperity, wealth and success in a kindly fashion to someone who is a bit short of money and/or struggling financially.

Indalo as a symbol of financial prosperity

For many years, people in southern Spain have worn Indalo jewellery (or attached the Indalo Man symbol to their house) to help protect them from adversity – whether it be from actual physical harm caused by an accident, earthquake, flood, etc, or through illness, injury or bad health . . but also to protect them against financial hardship and other difficulties or business woes.

How can the Indalo offer protection against financial hardship?

Around the world, the Indalo figure has existed in rudimentary form for many years although nowadays, it is more commonly associated with southern Spain (and in particular in Almería, Andalucía). Here, it is a renowned lucky charm symbol said to offer protection, good fortune . . and prosperity. In these parts, the Indalo symbol is considered very lucky and there is a belief that an Indalo charm can lead to a rise in wealth and even income for the owner.

Indalo Man as a protection talisman symbol

Everything stems from the protective nature of the Indalo – established over many years: Around 4,000 years ago, Neolithic man decorated the walls of a cave in southern Spain with drawings of goats, deer and birds, as well as basic sketches of men/women in various poses, alongside other shapes. Some of of these ‘shapes’ were in the form of the Indalo (a man with arms outstretched holding a rainbow).

Subsequently, over the years, this symbol was daubed on the walls of many properties in the Levante region as some sort of lucky symbol and indeed, as time passed, it was thought to have been instrumental in protecting the local population from various misfortunes that befell other nearby areas – such as harm from the succeeding floods and earthquakes. When the local populace looked at how they had fared against their neighbours, it appeared as if they were somehow “protected” by this symbol from the cave (‘cueva’ in Spanish).

The “Cueva de los Letreros” is now a UNESCO World Heritage site and the Indalo has become famous throughout the province of Almería (and beyond) where to this day, it is strongly believed that this “Indalo Man” can offer protection and bring good fortune wherever it is situated. Travelling around, you will see it everywhere. It is an integral part of the way of life of this region of Spain: Even today, in the small village pueblos that lie hidden behind the giant sierras that roll down to the Mediterranean Sea, the Indalo is known for its good luck properties and as a symbol of prosperity and good fortune.

Our Indalo Prospero jewellery, representing wealth, abundance and success, is a reflection of this belief and is intended to encourage people who would like to increase their good fortune.

As a gift, a piece of Indalo Próspero jewellery makes a present with real meaning to those suffering financial hardship or when times are hard. Consequently, you are able to wish someone prosperity, wealth and success by sending them a good luck gift based on the Indalo Próspero talisman.

But why not just gift someone money?

Should you give money as a gift? Should you pay off a debt of someone dear – a close friend, relative or loved-one?

If someone is going through a hard time financially, there is nothing wrong with sending them money to ease the financial burden. But, if you’ve ever wondered what gift to give someone who is struggling financially, that is NOT pecuniary, the Indalo Próspero could be ideal: Representing the promise of wealth and abundance to many people (particularly in southern Spain), it could make an ideal gift to someone who is hard up and needs a break . . someone in debt who needs money to get them out of their current financial difficulties.

How WELLBEING JEWELLERY gifts improve MENTAL HEALTH

Wellbeing jewellery necklace Get Well gift

Is there such a thing as jewellery for wellbeing?

We think so and we stock wellbeing jewellery in our SHOP online. But is it really feasible that wellbeing jewellery can improve mental health?

Wellbeing jewellery can improve mental health

Some say that wellbeing is in short supply at the moment. So we have curated a range of jewellery specifically to encourage wellbeing – both as a gift and for personal use.

But what IS wellbeing? And what is jewellery for wellbeing? And can it really help us in our daily lives?

Good living conditions such as housing and employment are fundamental to wellbeing – as are good social relationships. But in general, wellbeing encompasses a multitude of factors such as good health and prosperity, mental and physical energy/fitness, happiness, contentment, hopefulness, confidence, good self-esteem, positiveness, creativity, having a sense of purpose – and feeling strong, comfortable and in control. It also involves an element of having luck and good fortune, as well as feeling safe, protected and sheltered – along with sufficient wealth. It is also important to be emotionally and socially competent, to be innovative and open to new ideas, and to have positive relationships.

Overall, having favourable wellbeing is when you feel good about yourself and your life and your achievements, and have a good overall welfare physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually, and intellectually. You are satisfied with life.

A lot of the jewellery in our SHOP is intended to help with this, and to encourage better wellbeing.

But how does this work?

First let’s look at the definition of wellbeing

Many people have attempted to define well-being but perhaps the most encompassing “definition” is found on the website whatworkswellbeing.org: Namely, in modern parlance, Wellbeing is: HOW WE ARE DOING . . as individuals, and, more expansively, as communities, and as a nation.

So, if we can find something that makes us feel better in ourselves, we will presumably have better wellbeing. Our wellbeing jewellery is designed for that purpose.

It is worth bearing in mind however that here are different types of wellbeing . . namely mental wellbeing, physical wellbeing, economic wellbeing and emotional wellbeing. But in reality, these different forms of wellbeing are all closely related; and one way of understanding this is to look at how people are able to flourish, i.e. whether they have positive emotions, can function well in society, can respond to challenges and can have meaning in their lives.

In Martin Seligman’s book, “What Is Well-Being?” he suggests that the principal factors are: Having positive emotions; being active when possible; having good relationships with other people; and finding meaning in one’s life with a sense of accomplishment in the pursuit of goals.

From a more physical point of view, we also have to consider income, employment status and health (especially feeling well physically).

Conversely, psychological constituents that restrict wellbeing encompass feelings of loneliness, as well as anxiety and the loss of a sense of purpose – all major elements in mental health. (Note: Mental health and personal wellbeing are closely related – but nonetheless distinct. But people with poor mental health are much more likely to have a lower level of wellbeing.)

Another important factor (especially from our point of view as a shop selling gifts and jewellery for wellbeing), is something that helps people connect with other people, and the society around them. So relationships, friends and family, and the people we encounter in our day-to-day lives (like neighbours, for example) are vital in this respect – and especially people we can rely on and trust.

Giving a gift (especially a gift with meaning for wellbeing) is a great way to connect

But just as an act of connection is key to wellbeing, so is the act of participation, taking part in society, being active, taking notice of our surroundings, self-educating . . and being involved in occasional acts of giving!

Wearing a piece of wellbeing jewellery personally can help us be more aware of the things that affect us on a day-to-day basis – or the things that help us participate in modern life: The jewellery can act as a constant reminder of our own goals and desires.

To feel well, we need a mixture of things that bring us pleasure and purpose. Feeling isolated and lonely can be very damaging to wellbeing. Whereas, for example, simple exercise, such as running can make people feel happy . . but not everyone. Wellbeing is indeed a personal thing . . but with inter-linking components.

In summary, we believe that if you want to help someone to improve their wellbeing (or your own), the following is advisable:

  • Desirable goals (to bring meaning or purpose to life through the pursuit of success or accomplishment)
  • Positive emotions
  • Engagement and involvement in activities (especially those taking place in the presence of other people)
  • Meaningful relationships

And, if you offer someone a gift that says Be Well, Take Care, Stay Safe, and so on, you can pass on your desire for their wellbeing and offer your support or affection to a special person in your life.

Wellbeing jewellery is for caring, sharing and inspiring . . making a gift that can be used to offer your encouragement, your appreciation – even your help; a gift that can pass on a general feel-good factor. What’s more, the gifting process itself is an act that can boost your own personal wellbeing.

A gift for wellbeing conveys your wishes of wellbeing and helps friends and loved-ones be more aware of the things that affect their wellness on a day-to-day basis (including friendships). It can act as a constant reminder of goals and desires (and a reminder of who gave it to them).

Model with Wellness gift necklace

Brain fog? Lacking in energy? Stressed at work? Welcome to the concept of feeling good again and welcome to peace of mind with some of our latest wellness gifts.

Feel good gifts

As we get older, our health becomes more fragile in terms of our general well-being. So we need to be more aware of the things that affect our wellness – or things that make us feel good (or unwell) on a day-to-day basis.

Wellness jewellery such as this is crucial in this respect – making a perfect gift to pass on wishes of good health . . and protection from some of the causes of ill-health and debility.

It is a constant reminder of good health goals and desires. It doesn’t make you more healthy per se . . it merely expresses a DESIRE to be healthy – a “representation” of good health practices and concepts and, as such, a powerful aide-memoire to adhere to the principles of a healthy lifestyle wherever possible.

Wellness Stay Well gift card

Studies have shown that symbolic tokens and keepsakes can boost people’s awareness, with many admitting there’s power in a thought made positive by a meaningful charm – being a constant reminder of purpose and desires.

Jewellery gifts for stress relief and anxiety

Jewellery for wellness and health like our wellness necklaces and bracelets are hugely popular at the moment – as both gifts, and for personal use. Many see them as a health protector . . something to ward off sickness and ill-health. In reality, they are more like ‘tokens’ of good health – not a prescriptive solution to illness but rather an aide memoire to strive for a better, more healthy lifestyle.

This principle relies on faith (or belief) – whether that be actual religious faith (as is the case with a necklace bearing a Christian symbol like the Cross, for example), or a more spiritual belief relating to other common health symbols such as the Lotus Flower, Yin-Yang, Hamsa or Indalo figure. All these symbols are centuries old, and millions of people around the world put faith in them for protection on a daily basis. When the protection sought is against ill-health, they can become a “health protector” and, if gifted can pass on wishes of well-being and good health.

Stay well gifts

Take a look at this Wellness Necklace featuring the Indalo symbol for protection, good fortune and well-being: The Indalo is a well-known symbol of protection, wellness and good luck and is said to create a positive attitude to health, and to help achieve the goal of overall wellness.The Indalo Man posture, with arms extended, is said to unify the body, mind and spirit in harmony with nature, internalising goals for good health, and promoting overall wellness. It is said to create a balance in life.

Not only could the Indalo help make you (or a friend) feel more healthy by giving you a positive attitude to healing, but it could also help maintain a certain wellness and good health by offering its attributes as one of the great symbols of protection.

You can wish your friends or loved-ones well by sending them a meaningful present to promote general health and wellness. Even a small inspirational token can really make a difference. It would be a lovely little gift to show that you care about their health, prosperity and well-being.

Protection jewellery

You can also see symbolic wellness necklaces in our SHOP based on Christian health gifts and faith charm jewelry, and Christian symbols for healing and wellbeing . . all founded on various talismans and amulets for healing and protection. The power of the mind to influence the body is well-known and many religious people believe that faith in their God can help heal them and others.

We have a great selection of health and wellness necklaces and bracelets as presents in our SHOP that might be suitable as a gift for health protection.

GIFTS for people who MISS TRAVELLING or planning Camino trip

People miss travelling

Here are 15 gifts for people who hope to travel, especially someone planning a Camino trip or other journey they want to go on

Do you want to travel on a trip, adventure or holiday? Are you (or people you know) stuck at home and missing travelling?

See our SHOP for a selection of travel gifts to keep the dream alive and inspire someone’s next journey, or to find a gift for someone planning a Camino trip, or for people who miss travelling in general.

Bracelet gifts for people who love travel

Travelling has become difficult, if not impossible for many people. So we have selected some gifts for someone who wants to travel – but can’t. Because they are unable to take a trip, travel lovers might appreciate a small present to help ease their travel withdrawal symptoms and give them faith that their adventure or journey could still occur . . a small gift to help them achieve their travel goals. This could be spiritual or religious jewellery, for example, or simply a little present to express what you feel and to wish them safe travels in the future.

Travel gifts are particularly poignant at the moment – especially for people who yearn to do the Camino de Santiago in Spain but have been restrained by all the international lockdown restrictions that have made their dream journey fade away.

Without doubt, traveling will be a bit different (or non-existent) for the foreseeable future because of the pandemic but that doesn’t mean that you or your friends / loved-ones should lose sight of dreams and the travel wanderlust.

Gifts for travelers stuck at home: Wish them luck!

We have selected 15 of the best gifts for people who miss travelling and yet still hope to travel in the future (soon!) even though they are unable to travel at the moment. Wish them luck! so they can maintain their hopes of travelling – along with a little travel memento to help ease their travel withdrawal symptoms:

If you haven’t travelled anywhere at all this year, you will obviously be missing the joy and adventure of travel. But it seems that all we can do is reminisce about memorable trips of the past and continue to make plans for future travel if (and when) we are allowed 😉

Camino inspired gifts for fans of Camino

A little travel gift, if carefully chosen, can pass on your message of condolences for lack of travel – as well as hope to a friend or loved-one for future journeys and adventures. Here are a few Camino gifts for fans of El Camino . . The Way of Saint James:

Gifts for people who miss travelling

Whilst gifting someone something that they can use on their next getaway might be a bit brash at the moment, we recommend sending them something that reminds them of a trip from the past, and which will give them the confidence to believe it will happen again. For example:

Vaccinations / certificates / passports

So you can see that, for a friend or family member who is missing their travel injection to cure their travel bug, we have assembled a range of gifts that are aimed at perpetuating the travel dream for those people who miss travelling:

Finally however, it should be noted that in present times, a Vaccine Certificate might be the best gift of all – but sadly, we don’t sell those 😉
