Feng shui doesn’t have to be just baguas and front doors. It’s also a great way to accessorize your wardrobe. and one of the best personal activators -and protectors- is jewelry. Whether it’s real gold and silver or pretty colored costume jewelry, there’s no denying that adding jewelry feels like an outfit is complete once accessorized.
Jewelry is also a great way to attract attention and give your personal energy an energetic boost.
Reading: Feng shui jewelry
When a woman steps out and is fully accessorized, it’s like the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae. Sure, the sundae is great, but when it’s finished off with that bright red orb atop a cloud of whipped cream, there’s no denying the appeal.
and this is how wearing jewelry can also complete your look. In addition to making your look feel complete, jewelry adds important qualities to what you wear, and even to the way you feel and your energy level.
Notice how you feel when you wear certain stones or pieces of jewelry. some may make you feel better, others you may not like as much. It is always useful to find those stones and types of jewelry that harmonize with you, your birth element, your kua number or your zodiac sign.

Because the rings adorn the hands, they pay special attention to the area that the hands represent, which is intelligence and thought. wearing rings will put emphasis on your thoughts and can help you be more expressive and mentally astute.
when you have to make important decisions, wear rings.
the rings are retentive and conductive. the metal in a ring is conductive, like electricity moving through metal wires, and if you have a stone in the ring, it retains emotion and intent.
Think of an engagement ring. it is a stone that holds the promise of marriage, and holds that thought and intention surrounded by a metal band to drive that intention. Additionally, diamond clarity can help improve clarity of thought.
ring tip: to promote a long and happy marriage, wear rings on both the right and left ring fingers. For more authority, wear a ring on your index finger.
Like rings, bracelets activate the hands and this is the part of the body that’s related to decision-making. Wearing bracelets can help promote thought and decisions. To add emphasis to your mind and capabilities, try wearing a pair of cuff bracelets like Wonder Woman.
look for wristbands to improve reception. the hands are always the point where you receive items, whether it’s a gift or change from a cashier while you’re shopping for an item. Consider wearing beautiful bangles to enhance the reception of more money, good news, and to make auspicious decisions and choices.
Because earrings are worn in the ear, symbolizing career, income, and business, they become a symbol of opportunity. Adorning your ears with earrings is a great way to add emphasis on opening up new avenues in business and career and influencing your income. Pearls and anything from simple gold or silver earrings to beautiful, sparkling diamonds are great for helping you make financial and business gains, network, and advance your career.
When you wear a necklace, it calls attention to your throat, face, and head. This is the part of you that receives recognition. A beautiful necklace around your neck adds emphasis to what you say as important and noteworthy.
A beautiful necklace is like a beautiful frame around a painting, drawing attention to what is within the frame and complementing it at the same time. when you find that you lack recognition and notoriety, wear a beautiful necklace to attract positive attention and recognition.
Just as we can use feng shui to protect our homes, we can also use feng shui to protect ourselves personally. wearing real stones and real gold and silver can provide the added benefit of enhancing and attracting beneficial energy and can protect us from negativity.
for example, if your house is facing the direction or the corner of your bedroom is located in the direction of illness or you are under the influence of illness energies (black 2 and yellow 5) during the year, wearing real gold or silver will help protect you. Likewise, if you have beneficial energies for your zodiac sign, bedroom, or home direction, wearing real gold and silver can help and give you an extra energetic boost.
Look for any jewelry that has auspicious symbols that you enjoy. These can be the infinity look, mystic knot, dragon, peacock, Chinese coins, and eggs just to name a few. There are so many designs and options to choose from. Always look for symbols that are appealing to you personally.
When I was designing jewelry for Home Shopping Network (HSN), I wanted to create jewelry that used feng shui symbols in a fresh and fashionable way. One of the most popular pieces I created was a necklace that featured all four celestial creatures of the tortoise, tiger, dragon and phoenix. Look for items that speak to the elements of feng shui (metal, water, wood, fire, and earth) and that create beneficial energy for you.
make it personal.
You can make custom jewelry using gemstones that best match your birth element. the birth elements are the annual elements that take place every year. for example, this is the year of the metal rat, so if you have a baby in 2020, that baby’s birth element is metal. Interestingly, the birth items go by year.
for example, metal element birth years are always in the decade, like 1950, 1960, etc., and in the following year, like 1951 and 1961. It goes like this every two years for each of the items. use the stones as your guide to wear according to your birth element. If these colors and gems don’t resonate with you, you can always select a stone by your kua number.
search your annual element* by the year of your birth to find your best stones and elements.
