As you all know, I am quite superstitious, which is weird because I am also a devout Catholic, so that’s like a contradiction right there. But I do choose which superstitions to believe in, if it’s something bad, I hold on to my faith and believe that the good Lord will not let anything bad happen to me or my loved ones. If it is good however, then I believe in it and boost it up with more prayers. HAHAHA!
So anyway, a couple of weeks ago, my friends and I were talking about jewelry and then it led to superstitions tied to jewelry and relationships, and it’s amazing how many superstitions there are! and here are a few of the things that I found quite interesting.
So first off, the Diamond. A girl’s bestfriend! The jewelry that symbolizes eternity, which is why it is the #1 gem that people use for most engagement and wedding rings. However, even this one has some bad superstition tied to it. Apparently, if you’re an unfaithful wife and you happen to lay your diamond under a pillow, your betrayal will be found out. So, if you plan to cheat on your husband, DON’T. But if you just can’t help yourself, make sure to remove your engagement or wedding ring with the diamond on it and never lay it under your pillow, not even while it’s on your finger. HAHAHA!
The Emerald. I love this gem, it’s such a cool green color, but I have yet to own an emerald jewelry, but after finding out that it’s supposed to bring marital bliss, I think I’m going to get me an entire set, just to ensure I have a blissful marriage. HAHAHA! See what I mean about choosing which superstitions to believe? HAHAHA! Ooh, and in some cultures, the emerald is also considered an aphrodisiac!
The Pearl. I love wearing pearl jewelry, they symbolize elegance and grace and it is awesome because you can wear it for everyday as well. But, did you know that pearls are a no-no during weddings? Indeed. Pearls are believed to be “tears” of the oysters, and according to superstition, if a bride wears pearl jewelry on her wedding day, she will spend a lot of time crying in her marriage. On another superstition, it’s believed that pearl jewelry will doom your relationship. Of course the couple will probably not break up because of the pearl jewelry, but it like makes it harder for the couple to succeed because that’s just what it does, I guess. Hahaha! So I guess if you’re not 100% confident that your man will love you no matter what, don’t wear pearl earrings until you’re married with children!

And finally, the Jade. In Chinese culture, the jade symbolizes good fortune and is said to attract wealth. So naturally, if you want to be successful in business, then having a piece of jade jewelry will definitely come in handy.
