Jewellery and its Health Benefits


When most people enter a jewellery store, they do so with the intention of buying something lovely – either for themselves or someone they love like engagement rings or wedding rings. But, did you know that buying gold or silver jewellery could also have some health benefits? Keep reading to find out what your beautiful accessories could be doing for you.


Gold, as a precious metal, has significant ornamental value. However, it’s also a material that people have been using for hundreds of years for various ailments. It has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties that could help you to feel and look at your best.

Gold is often a preference for stents and pacemaker wires, as well as implants – all because of its antibacterial properties. Even as science becomes more advanced, there is also evidence to suggest tiny gold particles are present in cancer and HIV treatment methods, as well as to reduce joint inflammation and pain in rheumatoid arthritis.

While not all evidence for the benefits of gold has gone through stringent peer review processes, there is no harm in visiting a jewellery store and seeing what beautiful gold jewellery pieces are available. You never know, it may also have the health benefit of putting a smile on your face.


Silver is another precious metal you will find in a jewellery store that offers potential benefits. It has antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties – all the while being a beautiful precious metal that can enhance any outfit.

That’s not all it has to offer either. Hospitals use silver medical equipment, so it’s functional even in the medical world, and you can use it to promote strength and stamina too. What’s more, there is evidence to suggest that if you wear a silver ring, you may have more control over your blood pressure.

However, you can find more substantial benefits in colloidal silver – a liquid form. Many people take it orally, but you can also buy colloidal silver spray products and vitamins too. There have been several studies conducted on the benefits of colloidal silver, but only a few human research studies exist on its safety and effectiveness.

Precious metals are no match for doctor-prescribed medication and treatment methods. However, they are a natural product that can both look astounding and potentially offer health benefits. If you need a new gold or silver accessory to match an outfit, it might be time to head to your local jewellery store.
