When artist Gilbert Baker designed the first pride flag over 40 years ago after being urged by Harvey Milk to create a symbol of Pride for the LGBT community, he chose colors of the rainbow to represent proclaiming one’s visibility as if to say “this is who I am!”
That beautiful six color rainbow flag symbolizes red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, indigo for harmony and purple for spiritual and the beautiful, striking color combination adds to the vitality and amazing feelings that come from Pride events.
Tapping into those amazing feelings is why I created my Pride gemstone jewelry line. I wanted something that reminded me of the energy of Pride and carried the spirit and meaning of the Pride colors. Since I am well versed in gemstones and their meanings and feel strongly that different gemstones carry different energies, I created Jewelry with gemstones that carry the same energy and meanings the Pride flag carries.
