From a spiritual point of view, gems and jewels have always had esoteric significance.
The understanding and use of gems and jewels can greatly enhance personal development. In most dreams it is the better-known stones which appear, but when the lesser-known ones are seen, there is much benefit to be gained by learning more on a conscious level. Many stones have healing properties.
Psychological / emotional perspective: If, in dreams, the jewels are set – made up into wearable articles – we are aware of some of the uses of whatever the jewel signifies.
For instance, to find an emerald ring might suggest that we have completed one of the stages of growth towards immortality. There are different interpretations for each gemstone, and opinions do vary.
Material aspects: Jewels appearing in dreams almost invariably symbolize those things that we value. These may be personal qualities, our sense of integrity, our ability to be ourselves, or even our very essential being. When we feel we know what we are looking for, we are aware on some level of its value to us or others. When we simply register that we are looking for jewels, sometimes up a mountain, otherwise in a cave, we are attempting to find those parts of ourselves that we know will be of value in the future. Counting or in some way assessing them would suggest a time of reflection is needed. One system of belief suggests the following practical meanings: amethyst promotes healing and influences dreams. Diamond signifies human greed, hardness of nature and what we value from a cosmic perspective. Emerald highlights personal growth. Opal suggests the inner world of fantasies, dreams and psychic awareness. Pearl signifies inner beauty and value. Ruby informs on emotions, passion and sympathies. Sapphire highlights religious feelings.
Something precious, to be cared for and guarded with due diligence.
The gem of truth. Facts revealing themselves.
Commitments and devotion. Precious gems, especially diamonds, are exchanged as part of engagement or wedding rites.
In a ring: Authority. Popes, kings, and other authority figures often wear gold rings mounted with precious gems as a sign of office.
Metaphysically: Assisted health, protection, or improved personal characteristics. People in nearly every ancient culture carried or wore precious gems as amulets, charms, and talismans for a variety of positive purposes.
Each precious or semiprecious gem carries different meanings within a dream. Amber equates to feeling trapped, diamonds are for love, emeralds represent resourcefulness, and garnets portend the end to a period of questioning. Additionally, jade indicates health, moonstone stands for foresight and all things feminine, opal represents financial
situations, ruby is a type of fire dream, and sapphire shows faithfulness on your part.
