One of our many offerings for musicians and hippies alike is our gemstone guitar string necklaces, available with a variety of different gemstones as the centerpiece of the pendant. Each one of them comes with their own meaning, and if you’re stuck on which one to get, here’s a comprehensive guide on our gemstones and their meanings!

Red Jasper

Red Jasper is a member of the Chalcedony mineral class, and is an opaque quartz with a vitreous luster. Jasper comes in a variety of colors, but our Red Jasper represents grounding, passion, and protection. Known as the stone of endurance, Red Jasper helps with balance, stamina, courage, and strength. The fiery red color is nurturing for the soul, and encourages the wearer to keep a foot on the ground even when they’re flying high.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is a pale pink color with translucent transparency and falls under the quartz family. It represents love and compassion.

Attached to the heart and throat chakra, the Rose Quartz communicates love and self-care to the wearer and snags everyone’s heartstrings with its attractive appearance. With roots tracing back to Aphrodite and Adonis, there’s no wonder it’s the gemstone of love–but don’t mistake it for just romance. It speaks to all kinds of love, whether you want to develop a deeper bond with friends and family or simply learn to love yourself.

Cherry Quartz

Cherry Quartz is created using natural reconstituted quartz and cinnabar, which is melted and given its flashes of pink color amongst the deep red. It can regulate your life energies, and promotes a healthy balance that will keep you centered.

Its rich and inviting red color promotes action and drive, and represents an abundance of vitality, strength, and energy. You’ll be filled with energetic enthusiasm and empowered to try new experiences.


A purple variety of quartz, amethyst is a semiprecious stone and is the birthstone for February. It represents spiritual healing, calmness, and wisdom. It’s a well known stone for its deep purple, gorgeous appearance, and it’s said to take its color from the tears of Dionysus.

It is the bridge that connects the concrete with the divine, and has long been connected with the third eye and crown chakra for its spirituality. Ancient civilizations like the Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians were drawn to the deep healing powers of Amethyst.

Milky Quartz

Milky quartz is a beautiful pure white color, and is simply a variation of clear quartz that is more opaque. Because of this, it shares many of the same properties as clear quartz, such as the stimulation of different parts of the mind–wearing a milky quartz will help your memory recall stay on top of its game.

Milky quartz is a balanced stone, keeping physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being in perfect harmony. The white ray energy that emits from the stone is connected to the crown chakra.

Blue Aventurine

Blue Aventurine is a stone that walks the line between the mind and the heart, perfectly balancing reason and emotion. Its calming blue color works calmly and rationally, and represents self-discipline and inner strength. 

Blue aventurine gives you leadership and respect in the workplace, and allows us to take full responsibility for our personal lives while empowering us to change when necessary. It is strongly connected to the third eye and throat chakras. If you need help overcoming unhealthy habits, blue aventurine is the perfect gemstone for you.

Tiger’s Eye

Tiger’s eye is a yellow-brown gemstone with a silky luster and an opaque transparency. It represents self-confidence and inner strength. Traditionally used to ward off curses, Tiger’s Eye invites the wearer to embrace their inner strength and awaken the powers of protection.

There’s a wild force about the Tiger’s Eye that is brought to life by golden bands, flecks of sand, and patches of inky black and brown. While it offers protection, it also comes with its own healing properties.

When it was first discovered, Tiger’s Eye was so rare that it was said to be more valuable than gold. The name is no coincidence–despite its resemblance to a tiger’s eye, it is strong, courageous, and always ready to jump on an opportunity–just like a tiger.
