Healing crystals for love are commonly used to attract and support feelings of (you guessed it!) love in one’s life.
This love comes in various forms—self love, friendship, romantic love, universal love, or a combination. Crystals for love may be used to attract a partner, heal from a broken heart, open the heart chakra, increase a sense of self-worth, nurture an existing relationship, and so on.
The key to choosing the right gemstone, or healing gemstone jewelry, is to follow your intuition.
When selecting crystal jewelry, such as a mala (mala beads are typically made from various healing stones), make your choice with an intention in mind. Then, the idea is that the healing crystal jewelry serves as a reminder in your day-to-day life, reconnecting you with your intention.
So whether or not you believe in the healing powers of crystals, having something beautiful that helps you connect with the present moment and your desires surely can’t hurt. It’s a step in the right direction, showing that you’re willing to open your heart to love and put in the effort to welcome loving vibrations into your life.

How to Use Gemstones for Love
Choosing your healing crystal for love is just the first step. Now, how can you use your crystal or crystal jewelry to attract the flow of love into your life?
Choosing Crystals for Love with Intention
When choosing your crystal or crystal jewelry, do so with intention. For example, your intention may be to increase your sense of self-worth and self-love, or it may be to open your heart to accepting love in hopes of finding a partner.
Place your healing stone somewhere where you will see it often, using it as a reminder to connect with your intention. When you connect with your intention on a regular basis, you will begin to send those vibrations out into the universe, which will then attract similar energies back into your life.
Purchase a piece of jewelry, such as a necklace for love or healing crystal bracelet, so that it’s easy to take with you wherever you go.
Use Affirmations for Love
Affirmations are short, positive phrases that are meant to be repeated to ourselves regularly. The idea is that by repeating the affirmation, we begin to attract these things into our lives.
Choose a love affirmation to associate with your healing crystal. Hold it while repeating your affirmation every day. If you have a mala, you can use the beads to count as you repeat your positive mantra.
Some examples of affirmations for love include:
- I give and receive love freely
- I am worthy of love
- Love follows me everywhere I go
- I radiate love
- I am learning to fall in love with myself
- I receive love in abundance

Using Crystals for Love in Meditation and Mindfulness Practices

Love is a very all-encompassing and powerful energy, which also impacts our lives in many ways.
By practicing mindfulness, we make it easier to open ourselves up to and attract the things we want in life—including love.
There are several ways that healing crystals and malas are used to practice mindfulness, from reminding us of our mantras and goals, to helping us dedicate time to our self-development, to bring us back to the present moment.
Wishing you an abundance of love!
