Why You Need to Wear Healing Crystal Earrings

Heather Askinosie|August 21, 2021

Many of us love earrings as a fashion statement – an accessory to our outfit and an expression of our taste. But the energetic impact of healing crystal earrings is particularly under-appreciated. Not just a fun way to accessorize, crystal earrings are a powerful way to access the energy of crystals and incorporate crystal healing into your everyday life. 

The ears are considered a symbol of memory, receptivity and awakening. Wearing crystals on this part of the body brings a different interaction with crystals than wearing them on your chest or wrist. In particular, crystals on the ears help to awaken the upper energy centers of the body and the upper chakras, especially your throat chakra and your third eye chakra. Because you are wearing them higher up on the body, the earrings direct the crystal energy to these areas, which are the energy centers related to your words and thoughts.

When you wear gemstone earrings, you can focus on the energy of communication, both internal and external. The crystals can almost hear and listen to the frequencies of the words coming in and out of your energy field. This method of harnessing crystal energy puts more of an emphasis on how you speak to others and how you speak to yourself, which can act as a  reminder to listen to your words and be mindful of how you use them. You can utilize the energy of the crystals to gain heightened awareness of the frequency of these words and the energy they emit, as these energies can play an important role in how you feel overall.

Once the crystals teach us how to listen, we can connect to the world of sound that has its own healing resonance. In this way, your healing crystal earrings are so much more than a decorative addition to your outfit. They’re actually a healing modality in their own right. 

Besides helping you to be more aware of your energy and listening to yourself, wearing crystals as earrings can also help you hear the message of the crystals in a more impactful way. And who doesn’t want that? 

7 Ways to Access Crystal Energy Through Earrings 

Because each crystal carries a different energy, wearing a rotation of healing crystal earrings can support you in different aspects of your life. Here are 7 of my favorite ways to use gemstone earrings:

Amethyst for stress-relief

As a stone of peace and relaxation, Amethyst earrings work to clear your mind, body and spirit of any stress or tension so you can reach a higher frequency and tap into your inner peace and calm. Because they sit closer to your upper chakras, Amethyst earrings are especially powerful for bringing peace of mind.

Moonstone for raising your vibration

Wearing Moonstone earrings addresses your upper chakras and allows you to plug into a powerful source of light and positivity. By raising your energetic frequency, you can manifest intentions like never before. These crystal earrings also offer the perfect energy to refresh and recharge whatever intentions you are working on. This extra boost of energy can help you make your dreams come true. 

Labradorite for opening up to your limitless potential

The flashes of light within your Labradorite earrings acts as a constant reminder of your inner power and strength. The stone connects with your upper chakras and opens your eyes to your true potential. By helping you recognize the possibilities that surround you, these earrings unleash a side of yourself that is capable of more than you may know. 

Shungite for EMF and energetic protection

A must-have stone for everyone who uses technology, Shungite earrings are an essential energetic accessory. These earrings are especially useful for protection from EMFs from your cell phone since the stone sits closer to where you hold the phone to your head. Not only do these earrings help minimize the effects of EMFs from your electronic devices, but they also work to detoxify your energy field of any other unwanted or negative energy. By wearing this stone on your ears, you can specifically protect and detox your mind of energetic grime in the form of negative thoughts.

Pyrite for shifting your money mind-set

Wearing the energy of Pyrite Earrings encourages you to take a look at how you talk about and think about money. By evaluating, and shifting, your money mind-set, you can begin to create an inner environment that reflects how you want your outer environment to look. Keep your thoughts and words at the highest vibration to manifest the wealth and success you desire. 

Rose Quartz for embracing positive self-talk

When you look at yourself in the mirror or a photo, what words come to mind? Wearing your Rose Quartz earrings will ensure that only positive ones come to mind, so you can build yourself up instead of putting yourself down. Embracing positive affirmations and words of love and support can help you have the best relationships with yourself, which leads to better relationships with others. 

Black Tourmaline for eliminating negative energy

For the times when you have a negative thought on repeat or someone said something hurtful to you and you can’t seem to get out of your head, Black Tourmaline earrings are exactly what you need. The stone works to absorb the negativity and remove it from your energy field, almost like you never heard or thought those words to begin with. 

How To Wear Your Earrings in Alignment with the Moon Cycle

A powerful way to work with the energy of crystal earrings is by wearing them in alignment with the different phases of the moon cycle. 

Beginning on the New Moon: 

Wearing Pyrite starting on the new moon brings in the energy of light to help you get out of darkness. It fills your mind with positive affirmations and guides you toward a mind-set that supports your goals. For the best results, keep wearing your Pyrite crystal earrings as you build toward the full moon. If your intention has manifested by the full moon, you can switch earrings; if not, you can keep wearing them until the following new moon.  

Labradorite earrings offer a very different energy that is also well-suited to the new moon. Because the new moon offers a fresh start and a blank slate, these earrings are perfect for when you are feeling stagnant or stuck and want to use the new moon to its fullest potential. The Labradorite earrings work with the upper chakras to propel you forward when you’re at a standstill. Its sparks of light fill you with inspiration and fresh energy to go after what you want. Wear your Labradorite crystal earrings until the Full Moon, then switch to Moonstone. 

Beginning on the Full Moon: 

Moonstone earrings are perfect to wear starting on the full moon because they represent the high vibrational frequency of this lunar phase. Wearing your Moonstone crystal earrings beginning on the full moon allows you to carry that light energy with you into the following days and direct that high vibrational energy toward your intentions. Wearing Moonstone on your ears specifically opens the higher chakras and helps you to hear what is right for you on your path, which makes manifesting easier and faster. 

Our Top 6 Healing Crystal Earring Combinations 

Pairing different crystals together to wear as earrings is a powerful way to access the energy of more than one stone at a time. If you have a single piercing on each ear, you can take one earring out of each set. If you have more than one piercing on each ear, you can wear both sets together as a combination.  

  • Labradorite + Moonstone for aligning with the energy of the moon throughout the entire lunar cycle
  • Labradorite + Pyrite for  aligning your finances with unlimited potential
  • Shungite + Moonstone for energetic protection and raising your vibration

Take your healing crystal earring pairings one step further by wearing them with intention on your right or left sides of the body. Wear your crystals on your left ear to bring in a certain energy and on your right ear to release a specific energy. 

  • Rose Quartz on your left ear to foster positive self-talk with Black Tourmaline on your right ear to release self-loathing thoughts
  • Pyrite on your left ear to embrace an abundant mindset with Red Garnet on your right ear to get rid of your lack mentality that is keeping you stuck
