How To Use Protection Jewelry
Protection jewelry is any type of jewelry that shields you from bad luck, negative energy, and low vibrations. While protection jewelry is commonly thought to guard you from toxic external energy, it can also serve to protect you from your own negative thoughts and feelings.
So how exactly does protection jewelry work? The power to shield you from negative energy most often comes in the form of crystals or symbols. Crystals such as Black Tourmaline are known for their protective qualities, while symbols such as the Hamsa hand can bring you positivity and good fortune while protecting you from malice and toxic energy. You can wear these protective crystals and symbols as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, anklets, or your preferred jewelry type.
Before you begin wearing your jewelry, I always recommend cleansing it first. Cleansing your protection jewelry erases any leftover energy from their previous owners, as well as any energy it may have picked up in its travels to you, allowing you to start with a clean slate.
You can cleanse your jewelry by running it under water, letting it sit in nature for 24 hours, setting it out under the sun or moon, or placing it on top of or next to a piece of Selenite or Clear Quartz. If you want to learn a little more about these methods for cleansing your jewelry, you can click here for a deeper explanation into each method.

Black Tourmaline For Mind, Body & Spirit Protection
Black Tourmaline is known to be a powerful protection stone; when you step outside wearing or holding a piece of Black Tourmaline, you can think of it as though you’re walking with an invisible shield protecting your entire being: mind, body, and spirit. Black Tourmaline will protect you from toxic energy and low vibrations that may threaten to disrupt the positivity and stability you’ve cultivated within. It’s also powerfully linked to the root chakra, your body’s energy center for stability, security, and groundedness. By keeping your root chakra open and activated, Black Tourmaline will help you to remain strong, steady, and confident as you walk through your day. Use Black Tourmaline as your personal bodyguard to shield your energy and help you to feel grounded and secure as you move through the world.
Hamsa For Protection From Malice & Bad Intentions
The Hamsa hand has many spiritual meanings, but its most prominent meaning is to protect you from another person’s ill-will, malice, or bad intentions. Not only does the Hamsa hand repel toxic energy, but it can also bring you more positive energy and even usher in good fortune. Note that the direction the Hamsa hand matters, so you may choose to wear it facing up or down depending on your current needs. When it’s facing down, it’s known to bring you more positivity, abundance, and good luck. When it’s facing up, it will protect you from malice, bad intentions, and even your own negative thoughts. (It can also protect you from bad luck, so if you’re having one of those weeks when it feels like everything is going wrong, this is a good one to wear.)
Evil Eye For Protection From Danger & Evil
The Evil Eye may be the most controversial addition to this list, as some people are naturally drawn to this symbol while others feel like it, itself, gives off negative energy. This is completely okay. Don’t overthink it; if it feels good to you, you can purchase Evil Eye protection jewelry, but if not, try something else that feels a little better. So what exactly does the Evil Eye symbolize? The Evil Eye is meant to keep you safe, secure, and protect you from danger, strife, and malicious intent. (One reason why the Evil Eye can be so controversial is that historically, this symbol has been seen as a curse you put on someone to cause them bad luck and misfortune. However, when wearing it as jewelry, it has the opposite meaning: it protects you from anyone who would wish to cast the Evil Eye upon you.)
Chakra Jewelry For Energy Protection
Chakras are the energy centers in your body through which your prana, or life force, flows. Energy is meant to flow, and when your chakras are open, your life force energy can flow freely through your various energy centers. But when one of your chakras becomes blocked, your life force energy stagnates. This results in mental, physical, emotional, and/or spiritual blockages. While many people believe there are 114 chakras in (and around) your body, we usually focus on the seven “main” ones: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown.
I have lots of chakra resources throughout this website, so I won’t go into too much detail here. (I’ve linked to some articles below if you want to learn more.) For each chakra, there are various crystals and gemstones that will help to heal and protect these energy centers to ensure your life force energy is continuing to flow.
You can find jewelry that contains a stone for each of your body’s energy centers, or you can choose specific stones if there’s just one chakra you want to focus on.
Here are some of the crystals and gemstones for each of your body’s seven main chakras:
- Root: Hematite, Obsidian, Onyx, Smoky Quartz
- Sacral: Carnelian, Orange Calcite, Jasper, Red Tiger’s Eye
- Solar Plexus: Citrine, Carnelian, Topaz, Tiger’s Eye
- Heart: Rose Quartz, Apophyllite, Rhodonite, Pink Opal
- Throat: Blue Lace Agate, Celestite, Aquamarine, Turquoise
- Third Eye: Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, Lepidolite, Apophyllite
- Crown: Selenite, Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Lepidolite

Dreamcatchers For Sleep Protection
Dreamcatchers are meant to protect you from nightmares and harmful thoughts while simultaneously keeping you safe with good dreams and positive thoughts while you sleep. Like a spider’s web, a dreamcatcher will trap the bad visions and allow only good visions to go through. However, dreamcatchers aren’t solely for sleep protection. Many believe they can protect you from any kind of external evil, not just bad visions and nightmares.
To learn more, this article from Terry Cralle does a great job of explaining the meaning and history of the dreamcatcher.
Hematite For Grounding & Protection
When you feel like your foundation has been shaken, Hematite is the ultimate grounding stone to pull you back to earth. Hematite will restore your steady foundation while also guiding you to release feelings of stress, worry, and insecurity. Another bonus of Hematite is that it’s a protective stone. This means that in addition to helping you to feel grounded and balanced, it will also protect you from external negative energy that may threaten to shake your stable foundation. The ability to help you stay grounded and protected makes Hematite a powerhouse in all kinds of situations: at work or at home, while you’re driving or commuting, at the grocery store or your in-laws’ house, and everywhere in-between.
Shungite For EMF Protection
Shungite differs a bit from most stones you see in crystal shops in that it’s not technically a crystal. Don’t let that deter you, though. This carbon-based stone is one of the strongest healing stones you can find, used most often for physical, spiritual, and emotional protection. When you’re feeling heavy and worn out, use this stone to remove toxic energy and to cleanse your spirit of any negativity that’s forged its way within. Shungite can also ground your energy and help you to stay focused on your tasks and goals, acting like a shield against procrastination and outer noise. Finally, Shungite is also popularly used for EMF (electromagnetic field) protection, so if you spend a lot of time around electronic devices, this stone can protect you from any harmful frequencies they may emit.
