Rose Quartz Jewelry – We're In Love With The Love Stone

“Those crazy nights I do remember in my youth
I do recall those were the best times most of all
In the heat with a blue jean girl
Burnin' love comes once in a lifetime…

Those summer nights are callin'
Stone in love”
-- Journey

The pale, dusty pink color of rose quartz and summer just seem to go together. Is it because of the beautiful sunsets that make our heart swell with nostalgia and memories of summer’s past? Maybe it’s how the heat makes us long to be somewhere tropical where we might see some wild flamingos? Or is it the enchantment of the chilled rosé sipped from your glass outside in the warm breeze? Whatever it is, we’re all about wearing rose quartz jewelry right now.

Rose quartz has been cited as having many names – The Crystal of Unconditional Love, The Heart Stone, or The Love Stone. Noticing a theme here?

Why is Rose Quartz Jewelry So Alluring?

Healing Properties

The healing properties of this warm, peaceful and feminine stone are all centered around matters of the heart. Now my Journey reference makes total sense right? Are you still singing along in your head?

Here is a simplified list of the spiritual and physical healing properties of wearing a rose quartz necklace:

  • Reduces tension and stress
  • Dispelling feelings of despair
  • Elevating feelings of happiness
  • Discourages feelings of anger, fear, and resentment
  • Provides a sense of fulfillment allowing a deep connection or love
  • Inspires the love of beauty in oneself and others
  • Stimulates the imagination
  • Strengthens empathy, sensitivity, and aids in the acceptance of change

I could go on and on! Here’s a particularly interesting bit of info I found a while back reading about this amazing gemstone.

“Rose quartz healing benefits extend to people who have trouble finding happiness in life due to insufficient nurturing while they were a child, which supports rose quartz meaning. Pink quartz stones help heal old wounds and eliminate early imprinting that inhibits one's ability to love oneself. Feeling worthy of the love of others allows a person to love and be loved in return, which embodies rose quartz meaning.” -- The Healing Chest

The Color of Rose Quartz

The color of rose quartz has been prevalent in fashion since it was named one of the two colors of the year by Pantone in 2016. It remains on the list of Pantone’s top ten colors for 2017 – it is also referred to as “dusty spring.” Being called the “Heart" or "Love Stone” really isn’t a stretch with the warm and feminine pink hue of each gem which can range from a soft, light pink to a deep, reddish pink.

Composition - Why does this color crystal occur?

A silicon dioxide crystal, the color of rose quartz is due to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese.The color of rose quartz is very stable and will not fade with heat or direct sunlight.
