Setting Intentions with Jewellery: A Guide to New Year Jewellery Resolutions


As we embark on a New Year, many of us seek to make changes or improvements by setting New Year resolutions. It’s a time-honoured tradition to reflect on the past and envision a brighter future. What better way to encapsulate your aspirations and intentions than through the timeless elegance of jewellery?

In this blog, we’ll explore the significance of certain gemstones and the symbolism behind various jewellery elements that can serve as powerful reminders for your goals for the coming year.

Gemstones and jewellery symbolism

Gemstones have been cherished throughout history for their beauty and believed metaphysical properties. Often, people will wear jewellery featuring their birth gemstone, but incorporating gemstones and their associated meaning into your jewellery, can infuse your New Year resolutions with positive energy and focus as well as serving as focal reminder.

For example, for those aiming for balance and inner peace, amethyst is an ideal choice. The purple gemstone is associated with calmness and clarity, making it perfect for those looking to cultivate a more centred and mindful existence for the coming year.

If this year holds promise of love and friendship, consider wearing rose quartz or rubies. Symbolic jewellery featuring these stones is renowned for promoting love, compassion and harmony. A rose quartz pendant or a pair of ruby earrings can serve as a constant reminder to nurture meaningful connections and foster a warmer, more loving atmosphere in your life.

For those seeking success and prosperity, you should aim to wear aspirational jewellery featuring the vibrant green of emeralds which are said to attract good luck and abundance. Wearing a bracelet or earrings featuring emeralds can be a stylish way to carry the energy of achievement and growth with you wherever you go.

Symbolic jewellery for New Year resolutions

Beyond gemstones, the design and elements of aspirational jewellery can also convey powerful messages. Take the infinity symbol for example. This timeless emblem represents eternity and empowerment, making it an excellent choice for those looking for long-lasting growth and resilience. An infinity necklace can serve as a constant source of motivation throughout the year.

Consider incorporating traditional symbols and their associated meanings to enhance your New Year resolutions. For example, the tree of life symbol is associated with growth, strength and connection to all life. Wearing this symbolic jewellery can signify your commitment to personal development and deeper connection with the world around you.

For more aspirational jewellery, consider the power of personalisation. Customising pieces with initials, birthstones or meaningful dates and messages adds a unique touch that resonates with your specific goals. This can be a powerful reminder of your journey and achievements, both big and small, as the year unfolds.
