Gemstones: meanings & spiritual properties

27th July 2023

by Semrah

Coloured gemstones have become more and more popular in recent years as people look for more ways to show off their personality and individuality. Gemstones of all colours have been used across the world to promote healing, bring good fortune, or attract wealth so read on to learn more about the different gemstones and their spiritual benefits and properties to help you choose your next favourite gemstone. 

Spiritual properties of gemstones

Some people believe that gemstones have spiritual benefits beyond just looking beautiful. In various belief systems around the world, gemstones are incorporated into rituals to help restore energy fields, gain peace and aid with attracting love or safety. In some belief systems, you may even place gemstones on certain parts of the body to promote healing or improve the flow of energy. 

It’s not advised to put gemstones in your mouth (or inside other areas on your body) as some can have toxic or radioactive components or are porous and can harbour bacteria. However, wearing gemstones in jewellery is an excellent way to show off your style and reap the benefits of these spiritual stones. 

Different gemstone meanings:

Ruby gemstone meaning

Ruby gemstone

Rubies have been treasured and used for centuries to represent passion, protection, and wealth. Ancient Chinese warriors would wear or carry rubies to protect them in war and those in India thought that these stones would allow them to live in peace with their enemies. In more recent years, rubies have come to symbolise love and commitment for your partner and make a beautifully unique engagement ring.

Emerald gemstone meaning

Emerald gemstone

The verdant gemstone, emerald, is the stone of intuition and foresight and has been a symbol of truth and love for centuries. Because of their beauty and rarity, emeralds have always been the favoured stone of royalty including being the stone of choice for Cleopatra who wore them regularly, decorated her palace with them and gifted them to other powerful figureheads. Emeralds are stunning stones for engagement rings and give your jewellery collection a gorgeous vintage style. 

Sapphire gemstone meaning

Sapphire gemstone

Before diamonds took over, blue sapphires were the stone of choice for engagement rings thanks to the rich hue that has long been associated with fertility. Sapphires can be found in a huge variety of different colours including pink, yellow, and green (the only colour sapphires can’t be found in is red – these are rubies) but blue is the most famous and coveted sapphire shade. Bring blessings, invite spiritual clarity, and promote health for your loved one with a sapphire engagement ring. 

Garnet stone meaning

Garnet gemstone

Garnets are the stone of the clergy and nobility and in recent times are thought to symbolise passion and sensuality. In ancient Egypt, pharaohs wore red garnet jewellery while in ancient Rome, rings adorned with carved garnets were used to stamp wax seals on important documents. Garnets also have ties to Ancient Greece – they were believed to be the seeds of the pomegranate the goddess Persephone ate in the underworld. Nowadays, they are the birthstone of January babies and are beautifully rich-hued stones for engagement rings. 

Amethyst gemstone meaning

Amethyst gemstone

Amethyst is thought to be one of the most healing gemstones and is believed to promote peace and enhance intelligence. It’s been used throughout the centuries by many different cultures – the Ancient Greeks thought it would help with mental clarity and stave off the effects of drunkenness or hangovers (amethystos even meant “not drunk” in ancient Greek). Beyond the spiritual benefits, amethyst engagement rings are really unique and will show off your love’s individual personality perfectly. 

Aquamarine gemstone meaning

Aquamarine gemstone

Because of its beautiful blue hue and its ties to siren and mermaid mythology, aquamarine has a strong association with water. Sailors would take aquamarine with them on long journeys as it was believed to protect them while at sea. It’s also thought to help purify water as well as work as an antidote to poisons (although we don’t recommend you test that theory). Nowadays, aquamarine makes a beautiful addition to any jewellery collection and is thought to provide courage, help with mental clarity, and promote good health.

Peridot gemstone meaning

Peridot gemstone

Peridot is a yellow-green gemstone that is the birthstone of August babies. It has been favoured by many cultures as it’s believed that it helps to chase away bad dreams and is used as a protective stone. Peridot is also considered a joyful, warm, and friendly stone and it’s thought that it can ease anger or jealousy as well as encourage open-heartedness. It’s the perfect gemstone to promote warmth and good vibrations in your relationship. 

Blue topaz gemstone meaning

Blue Topaz gemstone

Topaz is another stone that comes in a whole rainbow of colours. Blue topaz is a bright, clear, colour thought to promote peace and healing. The Romans believed it could protect the wearer and bring reconciliation whereas the ancient Egyptians thought that it contained the powers of Ra, the sun god. Nowadays, it symbolises love and fidelity and is said to bestow strength and intelligence to the wearer.  

Tanzanite gemstone meaning

Tanzanite gemstone

The deep almost-purple hue of tanzanite is totally unique and instantly recognisable. Some people believe that tanzanite can help to detoxify the body and improve physical energy while others think it encourages perception and intuition thanks to its connection with the third eye. This is a really rare stone as it is only found in one place on earth – Tanzania – making it the perfect gemstone for a gorgeous engagement ring. 

Pearl gemstone meaning


Unlike other gemstones, pearls don’t originate in the Earth. Instead, they are grown in the shells of molluscs such as oysters and mussels. Natural pearls are extremely rare, so many pearls are cultivated instead. Pearls have long been coveted for jewellery due to their beauty and rarity and make lovely engagement rings. However, they do need a bit of extra care to keep them in the best condition because they’re much ‘softer’ than other gemstones and can become damaged. 

Citrine gemstone meaning

Citrine gemstone

The golden-hued gemstone, Citrine, is the gemstone of luck. The sunshine colour is often associated with good health and energy and it’s thought to reverse bad luck and welcome good luck. This lovely stone is also believed to bring prosperity, wealth, and protection to wearers. Bring luck to your loved one with a citrine engagement ring. 

Tourmaline gemstone meaning

Tourmaline gemstone

Tourmaline is one of the most colour diverse stones and is available in a rainbow of colours. It is considered a grounding and protective gemstone, thought to heal broken hearts and reconcile relationships. Pink tourmaline in particular is the stone of love, compassion and self love so makes for a beautifully unique engagement ring for your beloved.

But if you’re looking for a special gift or to treat yourself to something special instead, check out our unique gemstone jewellery for the perfect present.
