Is it possible to make someone feel healthier simply by giving them a wellness gift to pass on your wishes to Stay Healthy and Be Safe?
We think so – and have always promoted our meaningful symbolic jewellery with this principle in mind.

It now appears that we are not alone in this belief: A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that one’s mind really can play an important role in the healing of the body . . or in staying healthy. And physical and mental wellbeing really is a function of belief and a Feel Good gift really CAN influence someone’s health.
Jewellery to make you feel good
Evidently, it is the CARING factor that is the key. The old-fashioned Placebo Effect is nowadays being replaced (scientifically and indeed medically too) by what is termed the Care Effect: Research led by Prof. Kaptchuk at Harvard Medical School has showed that patients who feel cared-for can have better health outcomes. The scientific explanation is that factors such as caring and positive beliefs can cause physiological changes that help in the healing process.
And what better way to pass on your Good Health wishes than with a Stay Healthy gift: It expresses both caring . . AND belief, especially when that particular gift has some sort of symbolic meaning that is based on faith.
The gift of health – ideal for Christmas
This is where our symbolic jewellery gifts to stay healthy come in – intended to pass on feelings of care AND to enhance the recipient’s feeling of wellbeing by saying “Be Safe” . . from a health point of view.

There are lots of wellness gifts out there at the moment because of the current worldwide health crisis. But the majority are physical items to be used on (or in) the body: Not many of these gift ideas relate to the mind (except where anxiety and stress are involved). For example, it is easy to buy sleep masks, weighted blankets, inspirational books and diaries, salt lamps, diffusers, body lotions and cosmetics, herbs and supplements, fitness and health monitoring gadgets . . even healthy chocolates. The list is endless.
Stay Healthy gifts
But, as some of the scientific research suggests, to stay safe from a health point of view, we not only need physical things but mental ones too, where faith and belief, caring and concern play a part: Indeed, even a simple hand-written note from a friend offering hope and consideration can help – as can a great big hug!
This is where our jewellery gifts to stay healthy come in – intended to enhance wellbeing from a belief, faith and concern point of view:
a) They are gifts (i.e. they have the element of caring); and
b) They have symbolic meaning that possess real provenance – jewellery that actually means something to millions of people around the world – icons and symbols, talismans and charms (both religious and secular) in which people have put their faith for hundreds (if not thousands) of years.
These gifts have both the Placebo Effect AND the Care Effect – people almost expect them to work. Consider, for example, the number of people who visit Lourdes each year in France, and believe in its power of healing. Or, simply the number of people worldwide that put their faith in the simple Latin Cross.
There is an article about having faith to live healthier and longer which asks: “Can good health be enhanced simply by having more faith in one’s beliefs?”
Although this is directed at Christian faith in particular, it can apply to all other religions . . and to beliefs, both religious AND secular. It is the FAITH that is actually the important factor. People EXPECT them to work: It has long been shown that, if you BELIEVE in something, more often than not, it can help with your goal achievement. Indeed, it was Tennessee Williams who famously wrote: “Luck is believing you are lucky” and to this day, many people think that there is power in a thought made concrete by a symbolic charm – being a constant reminder of purpose and desire, and an inspiration to succeed. Paulo Coelho said, “You are what you believe yourself to be” and Henry Ford wrote, “If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t . . you’re right!”
Belief is the key, and so our little gifts of jewellery with symbolic meaning go a long way towards encouraging people to better health.
