What Do the Stones Mean?
Updated: Dec 31, 2020
It's easy to check out our signature collections of custom cultural bracelet designs at Kamea Premium Island Wear on the website. But when you want to learn more about how our bracelets are made and what they symbolize, when you want to understand the stones surrounding the crafted anchor beads, you can get that information here, too.
Stones mean things. Have you ever looked up your birthstone to see how it corresponds to your zodiac sign? Or maybe you saw some type of note in a gift shop on a crafted item that talked about a stone’s particular energy.
There’s a well-established community of people who promote the idea that different minerals have different feelings attached to them, that they operate on specific spiritual wavelengths. That’s why someone might keep a chunk of fluorite, or bloodstone, or garnet, or carnelian, around, wherever they happen to be.
At our page on the meanings of stones, visualizing all of the precious stones and gems and minerals that we use in our jewelry, you can see what each of these stones means and how it fits into a particular philosophy of design.
You can read more about the grounding and stability of agate, or the warmth and well-being of amber, or the protection and cleansing of amethyst.
You can learn about relatively common stone types like rose quartz and more exotic items like opal and lapis lazuli.
As you research, you'll find out more about how we craft our collections – our Grand Tour, Cool Cats and Black Label lines, for example, and others for men and women.
That goes into our descriptions of our bracelets as a whole crafted piece. For instance, check out our description of our Black Label Blue bracelet:
“Hematite and Tiger Eye stones surrounds a Kamea Solid Sterling Silver and Anchor Beads. Hematite stones are protective stones and is great to carry to help you stay grounded. It helps absorbs negative energy and calms you. The Tiger Eye stones helps to release fear and anxiety. It stimulates action and be decisive.”
Another thing you learn about is Polynesian language and culture. There's a lot of it on our website because we are very grounded in this local culture and community. When we say “kamealoha” (meaning “everything she does, she does from the goodness of her heart”) we mean it!
