You may be popping on one of our beautiful pieces, that has been made in the UK, to complete your outfit. But did you know in doing so you could be boosting your health as well as your style?
Some of our jewellery pieces are made with magnetic clasps for ease of wear. However, magnetic jewellery is believed to be more than just functional as it can aid in reducing symptoms of inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, rheumatism and migraines *. These health boosting properties are believed to be promoted by the magnet’s ability to:
Because of the iron in your blood, magnets can draw more to the area where they are being worn which improves circulation. This also speeds up the removal of toxins from the body as well promoting faster recovery from injuries.
As magnets aid in circulation, if worn on or near an inflamed area more blood will flow to it which can reduce redness, swelling, pain and stiffness, especially if caused by a strain or arthritis.
Pain in the joints and other parts of the body can be caused by lactic acid and calcium deposit build-up, which magnets can help reduce by aiding calcium ions to move faster through the body. They are also said to encourage a higher release of endorphins which can reduce pain and increase positivity.
Alongside the power of magnets, this season's jewellery features either stunning Aventurine or striking Amethyst quartz stones which are thought to have therapeutic powers of their own.
Known as the 'stone of opportunity', Aventurine is said to attract good luck and infuse this energy into all situations. It is also believed to balance emotions and dissolve negativity. But beyond the spiritual benefits of the crystal, it is understood to be excellent for people experiencing circulatory problems or cardiac conditions by lowering cholesterol, preventing heart illness and improving respiratory health.
To quote Leonardo Da Vinci "Amethyst holds the power to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken one's intelligence". Similar to Aventurine, Amethyst is considered to be an effective healing tool for physical and mental ailments particularly depression, headaches, body pains and respiratory conditions through strengthening the endocrine and immune systems. The stones healing properties are said to stem from its purification properties and small but detectable naturally-occurring magnetic fields.
