3 Best Gemstones for Love and Romance

best gemstones for Valentine's Day

Love potions may not be real, but there is such a thing as energy — and energy can be very potent.

As skeptical as some people may be about the mystical powers of gems, the belief that some precious stones can work for the improvement of one's physical or mental health goes back to ancient times.

People continue to wear certain stones for their extraordinary qualities, and often swear by their influence and impact.

Every gemstone is unique, each one believed to hold a different healing power, type of energy, or presenting a different form of luck.

Certain gemstones are thought to be love stones – gems that can help bring love into your life by either encouraging a more loving state of mind, improving current relationships, or luring those we desire into our arms.

Check out these wonderful gems to attract and enhance the passion and romance between you and your (potential) partner…

Rose quartz

No matter what sort of love you’re looking for, the first step is loving yourself. Rose quartz brings peace, tenderness, and healing, encouraging self-love and contentment.

With its tranquil, soothing vibes, rose quartz is said to ease stress as well as feelings of jealousy and resentment and can help heal a broken heart.

Carrying the feminine energy of compassion and peace, rose quartz is the most popular and mainstream of the quartz family. Traditionally called the Heart Stone, it’s been used as a love token since as early as 600 B.C.

A gentle and nurturing stone, this is the one you want if you’re looking for unconditional love in multiple aspects of your life. If you wear it near heart, like on a necklace, it activates the heart chakra and promotes self-love that radiates and helps attract outward love.

It’s a great stone for beginning romances and navigating the complex feelings of the many different types of love.

Maybe you need to love yourself more, or maybe you're looking to heal your familial love with a broken family member. Or maybe you’re looking for your soulmate. Whatever type of love you’re looking for, it’s a good stone to have in your house or as a piece of jewelry.


The luminous ruby is associated with romantic love and love of self. This is a precious stone and it can be expensive.

Ruby brings integrity, devotion, and happiness. It is said to strengthen both the physical and the emotional heart, bringing courage to the wearer. Confidence, vitality, stamina, and strength are all qualities associated with ruby.

The stone of nobility, this is perfect for those who are looking for a decadent romance. According to crystals experts, rubies are thought to bring about a sense of power and confidence to those who wear them. Unlike rose quartz, this stone does not activate the heart chakra but the root chakra, the first chakra that is located at the base of the spine.

Because it activates the base chakra, it initiates our sensual pleasures, promoting increased desire and sexual energy. Let’s just say, you feel your best self when you’re adorned in rubies and the sexual energy and confidence you’re giving off does not go unnoticed.

Lapis lazuli

Lapis promotes and protects interpersonal harmony in relationships, and helps to keep the head and heart in balance.

Known as a protector of interpersonal relationships, this stone can help to heal broken or injured bonds. It can support being more comfortable and honest with your feelings and enhance loving communication. It facilitates self-knowledge and self-expression, as well as inner peace.

Ancient tales say that if you give lapis lazuli as a gift, you are forging an eternal bond of friendship, loyalty, and trust between the two of you.

Wearing lapis is thought to help overcome shyness and timidity, bringing inner harmony and increasing your spiritual levels, whilst helping to win over the affection of others.

This is the best stone for attracting that hot and heavy one-night stand that turns into a long-term relationship (as it’s also considered a wedding stone in some cultures). It is also thought to enhance fidelity within marriage.

Even though we know there’s no such thing as magic or love potions, there is such a thing as energy — and energy can be very potent. Crystals emit natural energy, so learning which crystals can attract love and romance could actually come in handy for you.
