Butterflies have long held spiritual meanings of rebirth and transformation. Maybe that's why it's a trend for spa-goers to take home butterflies and other symbols to remind them to be in that moment.
Stacy Blackshaw, Executive Director of the International Jewelry Design Guild (IJDG), says, "Jewelry can evoke a time, place, or feeling, and often has sentimental meaning. It is no wonder why jewelry from a spa would enable capturing that moment in time." Celtic knots and mazes have been meditation aids for centuries. Jewelry is made with shells, precious gems, crystals, and semiprecious stones that are said to act on the body's chakras.
"Precious and semiprecious stones are reputed to have therapeutic and healing properties", says Sofia Koustis of Tenthio by Sofia. "Amethyst is known as a spiritual stone because its color, violet, is same as that of the crown chakra." "Carnelian helps prepare you for your spiritual destiny", says Gemisphere founder Michael Katz.
Thoughtfully chosen, jewelry can be a reminder to care for yourself.
