Some of our favourite stone meanings....

When buying stone jewellery, it's always nice to know a little bit about the stone itself and what it can 'mean' to the wearer. At Nova Silver, we have done a bit of research about some of the different stones we have to offer and their properties. Here are a few of our favourites:

Rose Quartz

Commonly known as the stone of love and infinite peace, Rose Quartz is the most important crystal for the heart. It is calming, reassuring and excellent for use in trauma or crisis. Rose Quartz gently draws off negative energy and replaces it with loving vibes. Rose Quartz teaches you to love yourself, which is vital if you think yourself unlovable. 

Peridot

In ancient times, Peridot was though to keep away evil spirits and purify the body and the mind. It cleanses the heart and helps to release burdens and guilt. It shows the wearer how to detach themselves from outside influences and releases negative patterns.

Labradorite

It is believed that Labradorite is a highly mystical and protective stone. It deflects unwanted energies and helps to banish fears and insecurities from any previous disappointments. Labradorite helps to calm an overactive mind and energise the imagination and help create new ideas.


Carnelian

Carnelian is a well-known grounding stone, helping the wearer to become anchored into the present reality. It is excellent for restoring vitality and motivation. It gives courage, promotes life choices and motivates success.

Turquoise

Turquoise is mainly found to be blue, green and yellow coloured and is often dyed. It is believed to enhance the immune system and help heal the whole body. It is also known to assist in problem solving and helps to calm nerves when speaking in public.

A few tricks to keep your jewellery sparkling....

A few tricks to keep your jewellery sparkling.... Hi Guys
This month i have a few cu
stomers ask me how we keep all of gorgeous jewellery clean so i thought this week i would let you guys know of a few tricks of the trade on how to keep your silver jewellery sparkly clean.
As you are probably aware when you don't wear you silver jewellery for a time you either keep it in your jewellery box or if your'e like me just place it on my shelf :D it tends to go black and tarnish this is because air and other chemicals it will come into contact with (perfume, deodorant etc) this speeds up the tarnishing time. When you wear silver jewellery it tends to clean itself other than when it comes into contact with anything with chemicals, so keep the perfume away.
It help with this problem i recommend you keep all your jewels in a zip lock bag even if you keep your bits in a jewellery box the fabric within will tarnish silver.
Another sneaky trick for stubborn tarnish jewellery is putting it in a homemade remedy of salt and bicarbonate of soda.
1. Line a container with tin foil, shiny side up.
2. Place tarnished jewellery inside.
3. Put 1 tablespoon of Salt and 1 tablespoon of Bicarbonate of soda.
4. Cover the jewellery with boiled water from the kettle.
5. Leave to soak up to 5 minute and then rinse your jewellery with cold water and pat dry.

In other news, its getting to the last weekend of the month that means that you only have a little time left to exchange your gifts from us from Christmas!!
