Add Some Energy
All crystals can have a different energy, impacting mood, health and even luck. Different types of a crystal can contribute other sorts of energies to the ambience.
Wearing crystal jewellery can add a wonderful mix of colour, texture and energy to your outfit.

Add Some Personality
There are dozens of different ways to put the crystal in jewellery. You can choose chunky crystals for a more casual look or drop earrings with pearls and other embellishments. You have endless options to show off your own personality no matter your style.
Crystals come in various shapes and colours, so finding a suitable method for wear is simple. The versatility and diversity of crystals mean there are infinite ways for wearing and using stones as jewellery pieces.
Add Some Texture
The texture of the crystals adds contrast and depth to your jewellery pieces. A small amount of crystal texture can give a much-needed dimension to what otherwise might just be a reserved or subtle look.
Crystal jewellery textures can add a fun, playful element to any look.
Add Some Elegance with Pearls
Pearls fall into the fine jewellery category alongside diamond, emerald, ruby and sapphire. Gemstones such as amethyst, opal and topaz are semi-precious stones and do not have high intrinsic value.
Pearls are synonymous with elegance and beauty. Pearls are often considered the epitome of femininity and timelessness. They have been the ultimate symbol of power, strength, and wealth from the romantic legends.
Pearl stones continue to trend in the jewellery world, especially pearl earrings.
Ancient Egyptians used bright precious stones and clear quartz in their jewellery. In Ancient Egypt, crystals were commonly used to bury the dead and in ritual services. According to some physicists, their energies helped them to discover the afterlife.
Even royalty such as Cleopatra surrounded herself with only the best gemstones that symbolised power and protection. Many crystal jewellery designs are inspired by ancient cultures and their jewellery pieces.
Contrast for colour pops
Jewellery designers use the colour wheel as a fundamental tool to mix and curate jewels in jewellery pieces.
On the colour wheel, complementary colours, which lie at opposite places, provide a contrast that makes for a visual impact. Often complementary colours are synonymous with iconic holiday colours — red and green for the winter holidays like Christmas.
Picking two or three adjacent colours on the wheel and mixing them with your crystal jewellery and outfit gives you shades and tones to play within the same general colour scheme.
In the same way, jewellers will pair contrasting crystal colours in earrings and necklace or pendant designs.
Play with colour subtlety
Crystal colours can also be grouped into analogous colours - colours close together on the colour wheel - blue and green shades.
The metal you choose can also give you a subtle style. The warmth of rose gold dazzles against brown champagne and white crystal. Silver is incredibly stunning with blue and purple and radiates beauty.
