Not only that, but these accessories are also thought to encourage your positive Sun sign traits to come out. Your Sun sign influences your basic personality, needs and desires and this is enhanced by wearing the jewelry. Certain materials used in making the jewelry can have an effect on your moon sign as well, which is the hidden part of your personality.
What Kind of Metal?
If all these things are starting to appeal to you, you may start considering purchasing one for yourself. As with any kind of jewelry, they are made using a variety of materials, including gold and silver. If you are on a tight budget, silver jewelry will give you the most value for your money since they are quite sturdy and reasonably priced.

There are theories, however, regarding the kinds of material used to make the jewelry, with some metals having different effects on different astrological signs. This is why there are some manufacturers who suggest using certain materials over others.
Some of these jewelleries also have gem stones in their design. There are specific gem stones or birthstones assigned to each zodiac sign and each month of the year. Separate from the positive effects of the jewelry design, each of these stones has certain positive effects that it grants on the person who wears them.
