Black Onyx Jewelry

Onyx has been used to create jewelry in almost civilization and country since the dawn of recorded history. It was used extensively by the ancient Romans and Greek civilizations and was worn by royalty and the common man alike.

Throughout history, black onyx has held a special place within several cultures and civilizations. Thought to possess mystical powers by many, it was, and still is used in some parts of the world for purposes such as warding off negative feelings, depression and a host of other human conditions. In some cultures it was thought to bring good fortune and promote harmony among people. Gemologists around the world approach this stone with an air of reverence and use it in many of their practices. Onyx has always been highly valued when used as jewelry and its popularity remains high to this day.

Onyx is used by astrologists as the birthstone for people born in the month of August, though most people who are not connected with astrology consider it the birthstone of those born in February. In some countries, people born under the sign of Leo use the stone as a good luck charm and are known to carry one or more stones on their person at all times. In India, which has a century’s long association with this gemstone, it is common for people to use the stone as a way of avoiding conflict and promoting friendship. As you can see, wherever it is found, onyx has a history of being used in many more ways than purely as jewelry.

The ancient Romans were known to wear amulets made of this stone that bore the likeness of their God of War. They felt that this brought them luck when fighting whatever enemy that happened to be facing on any given day, and over time it became common for Roman soldiers to believe that the stones made them strong and courageous in battle.

onyx jewelryWhen used in the making of jewelry, onyx is typically shaped as rounded, smooth stones, beads or chips. It is rarely given multiple facets like other gemstones and it has proven an ideal substance for items that require carving or engraving, such as intaglio rings, various forms of cameos and inlays on delicate jewelry, woodcraft and other high end items.

The variety and quality of onyx jewelry available today is literally amazing. Modern technology and advances in the making of jewelry have enabled the production of countless styles and variations of rings, amulets, earrings, pendants, necklaces and cufflinks to name just some of the items that are available in jewelry stores around the world.
