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.

Help someone combat adversity, hardship, misfortune and ill-health

The emphasis of our Jewellery for Confidence is to encourage positivity, optimism, achievement and success – but it can also be ideal to send as a gift to help friends and loved-ones combat any adversity, hardship, misfortune or ill-health in their lives.

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 – mostly 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.

Much of our Jewellery for Confidence features the shell symbol

Confidence bracelets, necklaces and earrings with gemstones

In addition to the Shell as a symbol of self-belief and determination, some of our Jewellery for Confidence also features a gemstone – especially Aventurine, Citrine and Sodalite.

All these gems are known for their confidence-boosting properties – indeed, some say that gemstones like these can help people change the way they feel about themselves:

Sodalite is said enhance self-esteem and to be a calming gem for patience and endurance.

Citrine is known as the “Success Stone” – and is said to heighten confidence, creativity and stamina. It believed by some that Citrine helps to manifest goals, and attract abundance and prosperity.

Aventurine gemstone is said to help people cope with life’s stresses and strains: It is so well renowned for goal achievement, it is called The Gambler’s Stone. If a dream is worth pursuing, Aventurine is the stone to help.

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

Indalo prosperity bracelets

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

See our Shop for Indalo Próspero jewellery online

Indalo necklace jewellery for prosperity
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.

What wellness symbol is the best?

We have looked all over the world for the best wellness symbol – and few come close to that of the Indalo figure. For example:

– The Lotus flower: In reality this is a symbol of enlightenment, of Buddhism, of reincarnation and re-birth.
– The Hamsa Hand of Fatima is definitely a symbol of protection although it tends to be centred around the beliefs of Middle East cultures.
– Yin-Yang: Rooted in Chinese philosophy, this tends to reflect balance in life overall.
– The Tree of Life shows that each of us is part of something bigger, and is a symbol of unity which concerns development, growth and connection rather than wellness.

When one considers all the above, it is plain to see why the Indalo is considered one of the best symbols of Wellness:

  • 20) Our final recommendation is one of common observation: Symbols of protection have been used to promise wellness and good health for centuries – from those of the Native Indian tribes of North America to the Ancient Greeks; from the Middle Eastern and Egyptian priests to the revered healers of Europe: And, over the years, many of these symbols have evolved into wellness symbols which are said to have powers to help heal sick people. But one mustn’t forget the so-called Placebo Effect which has a strong influence on wellness. However, isn’t the Placebo Effect just another manifestation of the principle of faith upon which these wellness symbols rely . . whatever religion or spiritual beliefs someone may have?

Have faith to live healthier and longer

Is good health just a matter of good health practices?

Or: Is good health a matter of faith too? And: What part does good fortune play in all of this?

In other words, is good health a matter of good health practices, AND faith, with a measure of good luck thrown in too?

Christian health gifts?

The power of the mind to influence the body is well-known and, in particular, many Christians believe that God can heal sick people through the power of the Holy Spirit: (This is also sometimes called supernatural healing, divine healing, or miracle healing, among other things.) But, in all cases, an element of Faith is involved.

Christian symbol for healing health and wellbeing

NCBI, the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (which advances health by providing access to medical information online), notes that: Faith healing is a method of treating illnesses through the exercise of faith rather than (or, in addition to) medical methods.

Strong scientific evidence suggests that individuals who regularly participate in spiritual worship (or related activities) and who feel strongly that spirituality (or the presence of a higher being such as God) are sources of strength and comfort are, in general, healthier people: They possess greater healing capabilities than those who don’t believe in such things. NCBI goes on to say that it is critical that physicians and health care providers listen to all aspects of their patients’ lives because it can affect the decision-making process.

Christian symbols for health?

Religious convictions may affect not only health care, but healthcare decision-making too, and NCBI concludes that spirituality may be important in patient health and coping. An example of this is prayer, which many believe can improve health outcomes. In fact, more than three quarters of Americans believe that prayer can help to heal people. In a survey, a similar number of doctors said that they too believed in miraculous healings.

Health protection with faith

Christian symbols for healing?

So, how exactly do we use this information to help achieve better health protection . . especially in this topsy-turvy world of the 21st Century with its global pandemics and the like? And what role does luck or mere chance play in health?

Some Christian symbols of protection

When someone becomes ill they start to look around for reasons as to why this misfortune has occurred. Some may feel that their Gods are against them; others may think that it is simply bad luck – and that fate has dealt them a bad blow.

Bad health is bad luck?

Has bad luck really played a part in their misfortune?

Christian symbols of protection?

Nobody knows for sure, but there are many who feel that a religious or lucky charm of some description could help them avoid the bad things in life . . whether that be in health matters, financial circumstances, their love life, success, or indeed in life in general, and many so-called lucky charms are based on symbols of protection (particularly those from Asia and the Far East), or on religious beliefs such as in the Christian faith.

If the truth be known, it is probably both faith AND luck that are relevant.

Scallop shell jewellery is worn as a symbol of faith, and the use of the scallop shell as a means of protection (or as a protective charm) dates back to the Middle Ages: It is the traditional emblem of St. James (James the Greater (one of the Twelve Apostles) and the patron saint of Spain and Portugal). Symbolically, the scallop shell is believed to signify the rebirth of a person, their resurrection, and the overcoming of problems.

The anchor is a Christian symbol for hope and steadfastness. The source for this symbol is said to be Hebrews 6:19: “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast.” Anchors are found in many inscriptions in the catacombs of Rome and they were also carved on old Christian gems.

And Butterflies? Because the butterfly metamorphoses from a lowly caterpillar to a chrysalis and finally into a beautiful butterfly, it has a strong resurrection significance – a sign of New Beginnings . . a New Start.

Although it is widely believed that the meaning of clovers pre-dates Christianity – going back to a time when clovers were used as Celtic charms, the lucky clover has Christian significance too – especially in Ireland. The Celts once extended across Ireland and into much of Western Europe and the Celtic priests, the Druids, considered them a sign of good luck, allegedly protecting against evil spirits and warding off misfortune and ill-health. In Irish Christian tradition, the Shamrock (or 3-leaf clover) represents the Holy Trinity: One leaf for the Father, one for the Son and one for the Holy Spirit. When a Shamrock has a fourth leaf, it represents God’s Grace, and so encapsulates everything that a person could want.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT ideas for CHRISTIANS

Valentines Day gift for a Christian

Is it possible to have Christian Valentine’s Gifts, that is, Valentines Day gifts – for a Christian?

We think so, and in our SHOP we have a few VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTS of jewellery combining themes of both Love and Christianity – in particular, Crosses with Hearts, but also Love-Lock-Key jewellery, Friendship jewellery, etc. as well as the ‘Love’ or ‘Romance’ gemstones of Garnet, Rose Quartz, Jade and Moonstone combined with a Christian symbol. Any of these can given as a Valentine’s present that has Christian overtones or significance.

Christain Valentines gift

But don’t some Christians believe that Valentines Day is a ‘pagan’ festival?

It is true that, whilst the origin of Valentine’s Day has ‘connections’ to Christianity, there are those that say that it actually originated in the Roman festival of Lupercalia. This was a fertility festival around February that honoured the Roman gods of Juno (goddess of marriage and women), Pan (god of nature), as well as Faunus, Romulus, and Remus. Others say that Valentine was a holy priest in Rome in the days of Emperor Claudius II, who was executed for preaching the love of God.

But the essence of Christianity is said to be Love and the doctrine of Saint Valentine was to embrace love, to show love and to preach love. Hatred was to be discouraged. And for this reason alone (if any reason is actually needed), St Valentine’s Day can be celebrated as a time to show our love (usually for someone in a romantic way) or even rekindle it.

So, despite the fact that a few Christians think that Saint Valentine is to be shunned, many, many more think that the expression of love is more important and, by combining love and Christian symbols in our jewellery, we are able to offer Valentine’s Day Gifts for Christians.

See some Christian VALENTINES DAY GIFT IDEAS in our SHOP

If you really appreciate someone who happens to be of the Christian faith, why not let them know – with one of our inspirational gifts for Valentine’s Day

Around this time of year we see that “love is in the air”, hearts are everywhere (mostly red – although heart-shaped boxes of chocolates are very popular), and flowers are ordered for those with more romantic Valentine’s Day gift ideas. People also have a bit of fun with their Valentines Day presents.

But many of these things, particularly flowers and chocolates, don’t last that long. So why not consider something a bit more persistent, enduring and lasting . . like Valentine Jewellery – meaningful jewellery for girlfriends, boyfriends, sweethearts, husbands, wives . . and friends.

But kind words are important too, and so we have made it possible for customers to add a personal message to each of our gifts, which we then print on one of our gift cards.

Gem Stones for luck in love?

Something else that might be of interest: We are the Good Luck Gift shop – so why not take a look in our store for a gift that might actually help you get lucky in love yourself! For example, some gemstones are said to actually attract love! In particular, Garnet, Rose Quartz and Jade are very popular. And it is also said that if you place a Moonstone under your pillow at night, you will dream of your loved-one!

A Christian prayer for Saint Valentine’s Day goes something like this:

“God bless you on this special day, God keep you in His care, and may His blessing and His love go with you everywhere”

And in the Bible (Corinthians), it mentions Faith, Hope and Love – saying that the greatest of these is Love. So let’s commemorate love on Saint Valentine Day and remember that, as the saying goes: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

In popular culture, the heart signifies love: And we have quite a lot of HEART JEWELLERY in our Store

The heart is symbolic of our spiritual and emotional core because the heart is thought to be the seat of the human soul: A piece of heart jewellery depicts love, as well as commitment, passion and longing.

Another example of Saint Valentine’s jewellery isthe so-called lock and key jewellery, or the love lock necklace – whereby a lock and key is combined into a charm and used to signify a secured (and sometimes, secret) love connection: One half of the lock-and-key set is kept by each partner to maintain a feeling of connection – even when both partners are (or have to be) physically apart. Heart, lock and key jewellery is very powerful symbolically: Give a friend or loved-one a piece of lock and key jewellery, and it means you are gifting them a piece of your fidelity. In this way, you wish (and hopefully, will get) the key to their heart in return. Indeed, a key gifted to a loved-one is said to signify that you are actually holding the key to their heart.

And what about love jewellery in general? Do love charms actually work?

Love charms can be traced back to the ancient world of Egypt, Greece and Rome. Common Anglo Saxon love charms included rings, flowers (such as red roses, and lilies), a lock of hair – especially when braided into a circle and kept in locket; dove feathers . . and love jewellery.

Wearing a piece of love jewellery is said to make someone feel more desirable – at least in their own mind. Many women in Ancient Greece used love jewellery as well as spells as a form of therapy. Regardless of whether the spells actually worked, it made them feel more comfortable and it made them feel as if they had some control over their lives.

We hope that our Love Jewellery works in the same way, not only as the ideal gift, but also as something for yourself . . to perhaps help you to find true love with the special person or friend in your life. Our pieces of love jewellery worn in a noticeable manner, may well work in this respect. They are objects that represent a desired change or outcome, and the charm focuses the mind to help you get what you want.

We stock a great deal of Concha Shell jewellery too: The concha shell has a long association with love.

Indeed, the principal symbol of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, is the shell. Over thousands of years, gods and goddesses from different cultures have displayed concha shells as symbols of romance and love.

But whatever your beliefs, Saint Valentine is still the the patron saint of love and, every year on 14th February, people celebrate this day by sending gifts of love and affection to partners and friends.
