As I become more conscious of my purchases, I find myself discovering a variety of brands that support social good, positive energy and spirituality. I am a big believer in quality over quantity, so I select my pieces carefully and with a purpose.
Recently I went on a shopping stroll in one of my favorite Boston neighborhoods, Back Bay, and visited Alex and Ani (another favorite of mine). I was looking for something special to represent my personality and found this “22” spoon ring. A master number and very symbolic in my life, 22 represents detail, a builder and a visionary.
“Master numbers indicate that you have learned the lessons of numbers 1-9 and have come to help mankind. With double the supportive and graceful attributes of the number two, the number twenty-two is a master builder. Said to be the most powerful of all the numbers, the often clairvoyant twenty-two is confident and ambitious, and the people who embody this number are known for their ability to turn dreams into reality. Realize your potential and embrace the possibility for success.” -Alex and Ani
I’m a faithful follower of Gabby Bernstein, who created a jewelry collaboration with jewelry designer Satya. The Spirit Junkie necklace is my favorite; this delicate piece features a pretty white topaz stone set in gold, reminding us to follow faith and love in our daily journey.
I joined Gabby’s webinar this past Sunday to get a jump start my New Year and create healthier habits in 2017. She discussed forgiving ourselves, discovering the root of the behaviors or bad habits we want to change, and other lessons to lead us into a more mindful year. The Spirit Junkie necklace is a perfect piece to remember that the Universe Has Your Back, too!
One of my favorites is his bright Red Infinity Bracelet. Simple, chic and sophisticated, this red bracelet is not only my favorite color, but has the healing properties of stability, serenity and wisdom from the jade.
“Purity, serenity, and tranquility. Jade has been a symbol of these things for centuries and is as prized today for its beauty as it is for its protections.”
I enjoyed my time learning about Rik’s jewelry making process, his charity work, his experience as a 9/11 First Responder, and discussing our mutual love of the water. In addition to his beaded bracelets, he also creates beautiful rosaries, earrings, necklaces, and more.
I am always searching for new brands that support spirituality and social good- what are some of your favorites?
