Why pink ?

Pink is usually associated with Love and Romance, but the influence that is having in out lives is much more deeper than that. We wear pink jewelry, we offer pink flowers, we show our support and compassion with a pink ribbon, or we paint the nursery in pink. Most of the time, we just think that is cute and girly, but here are some interesting facts about pink that it might help you to better understand this color when you decide to buy something pink, design a piece a jewelry or craft something in pink :

Pink is proven to have a calming effect - researchers of color psychology have found that this effect only occurs during the initial exposure to the color. Pink symbolizes love, beauty, kindness, compassion and emotional love of self and others. Brings you in contact with your feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance. Heals grief and sadness. Smoothes difficulties in both romantic and family relationships and assists with self-esteem and self-love. Pink is a combination of red and white. The quality of energy in pink is determined by how much red is present. White is the potential for fullness, while red helps you to achieve that potential. Pink combines these energies. Wear pink when you are around people you care about and that care about you, or if you want to smooth over or encourage the one to one relationship, whether it be friendship or romantic love. Pink suggests softness, sweetness, innocence, youthfulness, tenderness, romance, nurturing, friendship, femininity, soft and kind people. A pink carnation means "I will never forget you.” Both red and pink denote love but while red is hot passion, pink is romantic and charming. Use pink to convey playfulness (hot pink flamingos) and tenderness (pastel pinks). Multiple shades of pink and light purple or other pastels used together maintain the soft, delicate, and playful nature of pink. Add strength with darker shades of pinks and purple and burgundy. Pale pink : sweetness of youth, fragility. Vibrant pinks : high spirits, energy, youth

Some of pink gemstones are Kunzite, Pink Optical Calcite, Leopard Skin Jasper, Rose Quartz, Rhodochrosite, Rhodonite, Pink Sapphire, Pink Tourmaline.
