Good Luck Gemstones Guide

Keep your lucky charm close with jewellery featuring your favourite good luck gemstone.
A royal purple gemstone, amethyst symbolizes wealth, healing, abundance and spirituality. Amethyst is connected to both the third eye chakra and the crown chakra, which means that it can facilitate greater spiritual understanding. This stunning February birthstone and Pisces gemstone is often set as earrings, rings and necklaces to make eye-catching jewellery.
Aquamarine is a soothing blue gemstone that has been worn for its healing powers and magical properties since Medieval times. Because aquamarine reflects the colour of the throat chakra, wearing an aquamarine necklace can help you communicate and express yourself. This gemstone is also used to calm and reduce stress and is the birthstone for March.
Citrine is an energetic gemstone that serves as the November birthstone and the Sagittarius gemstone. Its range of yellow hues also links citrine to the solar plexus chakra, making it a gemstone of harmony and stability. Citrine jewellery like necklaces and bracelets can make you feel empowered and ready to face any challenge.
Known for its clarity and sparkle, diamond is the birthstone for April. As one of the hardest and most durable substances on earth, this brilliant gemstone is known to last a lifetime. Diamond engagement rings symbolize love and fidelity. Diamonds can also be worn as earrings or as a pendant for strength and courage.
Attract more peace into your life with emerald, the gemstone of balance and renewed growth. Emerald is the May birthstone and the zodiac gemstone for Cancer. Its deep green colour is also associated with the heart chakra. An emerald necklace that sits close to your heart will encourage feelings of openness, relaxation and acceptance.
Available in a range of colours, the best-known garnet variety has a rich red hue. Red garnet is a symbol of protection, purification and transformation. Since it also represents the root chakra, wearing a garnet ring or bracelet can help you feel more grounded. Garnet is the birthstone for January and the zodiac gemstone for Aquarius.
Moonstone has an ethereal shine which many cultures throughout history have likened to the light of the moon. It’s thought to bring good fortune, and milky white varieties of moonstone also represent the colour of the crown chakra. Moonstone is commonly set as rings so you can easily wear it wherever you go.
Discovered just over a century ago, Morganite is a light pink gemstone with a gleaming appearance. Its lovely colour symbolizes compassion, joy, inner peace, strength and divine love. Morganite is a popular option for rings, earrings and necklaces, adding a touch of its warm hue and positive energy to your favourite outfit.
Onyx is a stunning black gemstone that serves as the zodiac gemstone for Leos. It’s believed to have the power to absorb negative energy, which makes onyx earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings both a stylish accessory and a protective charm. Black is also one of the colours used for healing the root chakra and aligning your emotions.
White, round and with a lustrous surface, pearls symbolize serenity, wisdom, integrity and purity. This gemstone is the birthstone for June and includes a variety of types, including Tahitian, Akoya, freshwater, and South Sea pearls. Pearl strands, pendants and earrings are worn to bring good luck and are often given as a token of love.
Peridot is a translucent and sparkling gemstone that comes in a range of green hues. It can boost your mood and enhance your creativity. The Egyptians referred to peridot as "the gem of the sun," and its alluring green colour represents the heart chakra. This August birthstone truly shines when set as earrings and necklaces.
Rose quartz is a charming light pink gemstone that promotes positive energy and love. It represents one of the colours of the heart chakra and is used to release stress and tension, bringing the mind and body back into balance. Rose quartz is often set as rings and earrings for a delightfully delicate touch.
The luxuriously red ruby has long been associated with wealth, passion and inspiration. It is the July birthstone and the Capricorn gemstone and is also used to balance the root and the heart chakras. Wear this powerful gemstone near your chakras and make a style statement at the same time with a ruby bracelet or necklace.
Topaz has been an enduring symbol of strength since ancient Greece. It comes in a wonderful variety of colours with its signature being blue topaz, the birthstone for November, and the most popular for its vivid and saturated hue. Keep this gemstone close with a pair of dazzling blue topaz earrings.
Turquoise is a captivating, blue-green gemstone believed to guarantee good fortune and health. It has been used since antiquity as ornamental jewellery from Egypt to China, as well as in Mesoamerica. Today, turquoise is commonly worn as pendants and rings and is a popular gemstone for throat chakra healing and greater self-expression.
Tourmaline is a gemstone of incredible diverse colour and hue found in glittering earrings and necklaces. All types of tourmaline offer healing and protection, and specific colours are imbued with their own special properties. Green and pink varieties are among the most common, and both strengthen your joy associated with the heart chakra.
Sapphire is a striking blue gemstone associated with good fortune, wisdom, romance and the Taurus star sign. It adorned royalty in ancient Greece and Rome and clergy in the Middle Ages.
