Some like gifting their loved ones 5 to 6-digit worth of necklaces, bracelets or earrings. However, I'm not the kind of girl who goes gaga for luxurious jewelries, may it be for myself or as a gift to others. For some reason (other than not affording expensive jewelry), brass and bronze works, plastics and even recycled materials-turned-unique accessories have more appeal to me. Then, there's also the semi-precious stones and crystals of different colors and textures that I've always loved since high school.
Although accessories are usually worn for self-expression and style's sake, there are those believed to posses spiritual and healing properties. A brand I recently came across with is Green Halo which proudly offers affordable and fashionable pieces combined with the magical and powerful energy from one of Earth’s greatest gifts -- crystals.
Green Halo only uses real natural crystals from the States. It is owned by Ms. Monica Ocampo who hand-makes every piece of crystal accessory in her home. She's a firm believer that crystals are not only for fashion and flair, but also promote health and holistic healing. Depending on the kind of crystal, it can boost one's energy, deflect negative vibes, attract prosperity, enhance intuition, increase mental capabilities, boost confidence, bring abundance, aid self love, or even attract love and friendships.
GARNET - Stone of Commitment and Love
From the wide Green Halo collection, I chose the Garnet Crystal Bracelet (P700) since garnet is my birthstone. It was a struggle to convince myself not to go with amethyst, since as you might have noticed, purple-violet shades are close to my heart.
My chosen Garnet Crystal Bracelet comes with 4 separate bracelet strands which I really like. I can somehow change the look just by taking off one, two or three strands.
This 4-layered bracelet has small garnet crystals of deep red color with a blue-black undertone. It is believed to bring passion and compassion in romance, and boosts sensuality, sexuality, and intimacy. It also confers self-confidence, and conveys success in business ventures especially for women. It is also said to help in stimulating circulation, improving energy and stamina, and improving metabolism, among others.
ROSE QUARTZ - Stone of Universal Love
Another Green Halo piece I received was the Rose Quartz Crystal Bracelet (P850). I'm not sure if it's the work of the crystal's promise of unconditional love, but although I love my pretty rose quartz, I decided to give this bracelet to my little sister.
The Rose Quartz Crystal Bracelet is pretty and dainty, made up of smooth spherical pieces of opaque pale pink rose quartz crystals that come with a cute twin hearts charm.
Rose quartz are believed to purify and open the heart to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace. It dispels negativity, restores trust and harmony in relationships, and attracts love and lovers. It also strengthens the heart and the circulatory system, as well as help release impurities from the body. For pregnant women, rose quartz are said to protect both the mother and the fetus.

Every Green Halo piece comes with a small pouch, a description of the stone, and a personal guarantee that the brand only uses natural stones and crystals. And since Green Halo is a home-based business, Ms. Monica's creations are priced a whole less expensive than most semi-precious stone and crystal bracelet retailers around.
Whether you're in it for the style, or for the energy these stones bring, do check out Green Halo. It's a nice gift for the people you care for, and an even nicer gift for yourself!
