Chakra jewelry is fast becoming one of the most favored chakra-related products as they don’t just look beautiful, but they contain healing properties. Chakra bracelets were the first chakra jewelry items to fill the new age stores, but now necklaces, rings, and earrings are popular chakra healing accessories. 

Chakra necklaces can be colorful and eye-catching; thus, they can transform any outfit and show off your personality and style. But does a chakra pendant possess healing power, and will wearing one bring your subtle body into balance? Let’s find out.

What Is The Chakra Necklace Meaning?

A chakra necklace is made from one or more crystals that relate to the chakra system. In many cultures and spiritual traditions, crystals are believed to have unique healing powers. Therefore, wearing a chakra necklace may have physical, mental, and spiritual benefits. 

7 chakra pendants feature a gemstone for each energy center. However, you can also find necklaces with one chakra stone. The former is ideal if you want general chakra balancing, and the latter is beneficial for those who want to work on one specific energy center.

Both crystals and chakras have particular vibrations; therefore, if a stone’s vibration matches the chakra’s, it is believed it can help align and balance the flow of energy there. In addition to frequency, crystals have qualities, so if a gemstone shares the qualities of an energy center, it may also be beneficial.

Aside from the specific crystal’s properties, which we will discuss in the next section, wearing a gemstone around your neck has general benefits, too. For example, gemstones can shield against physical and emotional negative energy and infuse your being with positive, healing vibes. They can also help to calm your nervous system and still your mind. 

Moreover, with chakra bracelets, necklaces can serve as a reminder to be present and connect to your breath. Each time you see your pendant in the mirror or feel it around your neck, you can use it as a prompt to come back to the here and now. 

What Crystals Are In A Chakra Necklace?

There is more than one crystal associated with each of the seven chakras; therefore, each chakra necklace may be slightly different. Usually, the color of each stone will match the color of the chakra, but not always. Typically, a 7 chakra necklace will follow this color order; red (or black), orange, yellow, green (or pink), blue, indigo, and purple (or transparent). 

Here are the most commonly associated gemstones that you may find in a 7 chakra necklace and their qualities.

Root chakra (red)

  • Hematite – Brings your body and mind into alignment and pulls excess energy down to help you feel grounded during times of change.
  • Fire Agate – Builds a protective shield around your body, increases your sense of security, and boosts your energy.
  • Red Jasper – Keeps negative energy away and helps you feel strong yet calm.
  • Tourmaline – Repels evil spirits and negative energies and diminishes fear and paranoia.

The Different Styles of Chakra Necklaces

Two of the most popular and eye-catching chakra pendant styles are the pointed hexagonal or cone-shaped. This chakra pendant by JadeNova offers both styles, where all seven chakra crystals stack beautifully, starting from the root chakra to the crown chakra.

The crescent moon pendant style is just as eye-catching as the hexagonal design and can feature crystals for all 7 chakras or one stone only. This 7 chakra Crescent Moon Pendant combines a wire wrapped Tree of Life design with the crescent moon, making it truly unique. In addition, it comes on a Stainless steel extension chain, which is corrosion resistant and durable.

Bead choker

An alternative 7 chakra necklace style is a beaded choker where small chakra stones are weaved onto a black cord string, spaced apart equally. It is a simpler style than the others and is a popular choice for men as it is less eye-catching. 

These handmade necklaces on Etsy come in two sizes and are adjustable. The rounded crystals measure 0.16 inches in height and width, and the thin but strong cord has a slide-lock closure. The crystals used are Red Coral, Orange Aventurine, Yellow Citrine, Malachite, Aquamarine, Lapis Lazuli, and Amethyst.

Wire wrapped crystal

If you prefer to wear one particular stone around your neck to balance and heal a specific chakra, this wire-wrapped crystal pendant from Etsy is ideal. The seller has over 10 authentic crystals available, including Jade, Amethyst, Turquoise, and Blue Agate. 

The raw stones are wrapped in silver-plated aluminum and connected to a simple 18-inch black cord with a lobster claw closure. The stones are approximately 3 cm in height and 3 cm in width. What’s great about this seller is if you’re not sure which chakra needs healing, you can select the “surprise me” option and put your trust in the universal power. 

Tips For Choosing A 7 Chakra Necklace

  • Ensure the crystals are genuine – Unfortunately, some people sell fake chakra healing necklaces. Therefore, always inspect the pendant before buying if possible. You can check the quality of the 7 chakra necklace by ensuring the stones are in the correct order, and none are missing. If you are buying online, such as on Etsy or Amazon, message the seller to ask about the gemstone’s authenticity.
  • Check the material of the necklace – Avoid metal or silver-coated necklace chains as these can cause irritation to the skin. Opt for sterling silver for the best quality or hypoallergenic surgical stainless steel. 

Final Thoughts

Chakra jewelry like pendants, rings, bracelets, and earrings make for some of the best accessories and gifts for anyone into yoga, meditation, energy healing, or other forms of spirituality. As well as looking beautiful and adding some color to any outfit, a gemstone chakra pendant has the power to heal, align and open the seven chakras.
