As we look forward to another rotation around the sun, take this opportunity to usher in closure.
Each year is full of challenges and opportunities alike. The new year offers the chance for a fresh start and new life. Honor the close of this chapter with end of year gifts that bring closure and look onward to the possibilities ahead.
As we prepare to face new cycles of uncertainty, put to rest those that you’re ready to move on from. Reflect deeply on the personal challenges you and your loved ones have overcome.
Accept the feeling of truly forgiving and being forgiven, embrace gratitude for all the ways you have supported one another, and find peace and balance in a new, clean slate. There’s no better way to holistically celebrate the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next than with meaningful gifts for new beginnings.
We’ve delved deep into our collection of gemstone jewelry and decided on 7 end of year gifts for closure and new beginnings for you to realize your intentions and take the first step forward.
Yellow topaz channels the energy of giving thanks.
Yellow topaz shines as one of November's birthstones. As the gem of harmony and hospitality, it fully represents the month of giving thanks. Choosing this gemstone allows us to be grateful for the year that has passed by and open ourselves to new cycles.
Set your intention for closure with Yellow Topaz: “I am grateful for what has been.”
Set your intention for the new cycle: “I am free from the past, and I allow my emotions space to grow anew.”
Gift our Daisy Yellow Topaz Ring to symbolize that you are embracing gratitude, and you want a clean slate for a new beginning. When you feel negativity from the past begin to ensnare you, channel Topaz’s energy of harmony and healing, and set yourself free.

Allow Black Jasper and Clear Quartz to clear your mind, preparing you to take in all you have learned and all you will learn.
Every day is an opportunity to learn something. You might learn that you love a new thing, or that sometimes you have to protect yourself. Lessons can be hard-fought or bright epiphanies.
Set your intention for closure with Black Jasper and Clear Quartz: “No matter how difficult the lesson, I am only better for having learned it.”
Set your intention for the new cycle: “I embrace new opportunities to open my eyes and take in more experiences.”
Black Jasper and Clear Quartz work in tandem to clear your mind and ground yourself in your new paradigm. This mindful gift idea helps you let each lesson sink in, and keep you open-minded to encounter new ones. Don’t be afraid of the next challenge – embrace it.

Amethyst helps you find your inner peace, even when you’ve experienced change.
Change can be terrifying, but it’s what makes us human. Life would go by too quickly if we became complacent – finding ways to change and find new experiences, even if they’re small, helps time seem to pass by slower.
Set your intention for closure with Amethyst: “I make my peace with all the ways I have changed.”
Set your intention for the new cycle: “I look forward to change and I am committed to making change part of my life.”
Amethyst helps you find your inner peace when we’ve experienced huge changes in our lives. Even if our circumstances seem to be in turmoil, or we don’t seem to recognize ourselves, this end of year gift will bring you into balance and make change part of your life.
Let serpentine attract wealth and remove barriers.
You don’t need to feel like every missed opportunity is a tragic loss. You will always find the path you were meant to in the end.
Set your intention for closure with Serpentine: “I accept that to open a new door, the old one must close.”
Set your intention for the new cycle: “I know that no challenge is too great for me, and I am ready to find a new path forward and bring abundance into my life.”
Serpentine ushers in good fortune. When you wear serpentine on your person, you can rest assured in the knowledge that when an opportunity doesn’t work it, that means it wasn’t meant for you. It’s impossible to know how things would’ve worked out, and easy to assume that it would’ve been the best choice – but that’s not always the case. Use each door closing as a chance to search for a brand new opportunity to let good things come your way.
