Jewellery for Dry January, Sobriety or Recovery

Posted: by Jo Friday, 3 December 2021 @ 11:32

Increasingly, it is becoming more socially acceptable – even ‘normal’ – to stay away from alcohol, choosing other activities over drinking sessions in the local pub; or making different choices of what to drink. There has been an explosion in non-alcoholic spirits over the past few years, as well as ‘no-lo’ beers, which look and taste the part, but without the harmful alcohol content.

Mantras for Sobreity

Much of this is driven by young people, many of whom have a very different attitude to booze; and by our increasingly multi-cultural society. However, older age groups are still more likely to be frequent drinkers, with excessive drinking contributing to illness, accidents and mortality, as well as relationship issues, violence and job loss.

No one can deny the pleasure and fun of drinking, for many of us. From wine o’clock to Fizz Fridays, drinking alcohol to celebrate everything from children’s bedtime, to the end of the working week, is an engrained and enjoyable part of our culture.

But there are times when it is right to cut down, for reasons of health or mental wellbeing; and there are times when it is right to stop completely, when alcohol has too much control over our lives. This may be as simple as quitting for 30 days and joining the ‘Dry January’ movement; or it may be a more permanent change.

A Mantra for Sobriety

To help people who are making these difficult decisions, we are bringing out two necklaces to offer support and strength at such a challenging time.

A Mantra Necklace is often purchased at a time of stress or difficulty in life. Its uplifting and ultimately reassuring mantra is designed to change your mood and mindset, in that moment when you need it the most. From relationships ending, to bereavement, to job loss, the gift of a Mantra Necklace has helped many people to cope.

So - we have designed two necklaces, to help you on your journey of sobriety and recovery, or your aim to cut down for Dry January or beyond:

 

Serenity myMantra Necklace, from £65

The first necklace is our beautiful Sun Rising Over Water ‘myMantra’ personalisable Necklace, which we have pre-engraved with these words from the Serenity Prayer: Grant me serenity, acceptance, courage, wisdom.

Serenity myMantra Necklace

Larger than our normal Disc Necklaces, this is 2.5cm in diameter, enabling several lines to be engraved on the reverse. This one comes pre-engraved with the mantra above.

Hold onto your Serenity Necklace through the day, and bring to mind its mantra – words that recall the full Serenity Prayer: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. Courage, to change the things I can. And wisdom, to know the difference.

We have chosen the Sun Rising Over Water design for our Serenity ‘myMantra’ Necklace, because it is such a positive and uplifting symbol of hope. The sun rises, each morning, without fail. Whatever happens in our lives, the sun always rises, heralding a new day.

The sun rising daily also reminds us to live in the moment, taking each day as it comes. If you are on a journey of sobriety or recovery, or you are simply cutting down on drinking – take one moment, one hour, and one day at a time, as you choose to do the next right thing in that moment. Don’t think about the future – just focus on making a good decision right now.

Available in 925 Sterling Silver, 18ct Gold-plated Sterling Silver and 18ct Rose Gold-plated Sterling Silver, on a short or long chain. Order here now. 

 

Serenity Lotus Necklace, £25

Alternatively, choose our subtle but powerful Serenity Lotus Necklace to remind yourself that, today, you are making better and different decisions than in the past. Allow the mantra to encourage you to stay strong on your sobriety journey, as you affirm that 'Today, I make a better choice'.

The design subtly incorporates the AA symbol of a triangle in a circle. The equilateral triangle represents the three-part answer to alcohol addiction - unity, recovery and service; while the circle represents wholeness or oneness. We have surrounded this with the regenerative petals of a Lotus Flower, which represents new beginnings.

The Lotus Flower is a symbol of regeneration and rebirth, as the flower rises each morning through muddy waters to bloom again. It perfectly represents the chance to start afresh each day.

Its twelve petals subtly bring to mind the 12 promises you have made, and the 12 steps you are going through. Whether you are a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, or are simply following its steps, gain comfort, solidarity and belonging by wearing a necklace that subtly alludes to its symbol.

The design sits neatly alongside our Mantra Chakra Necklaces, and would not look out of place amongst them. Only you will know the necklace’s meaning.

 

Each necklace is presented on a beautiful card to keep, with a serene and inspiring image on the front, and space on the back for your personal message, this makes a beautiful and positive gift for a friend or loved one; or a self-purchase for yourself.

Mantras for Sobreity Mantra Gift Message

Mantras are powerful phrases, written to make a positive impact on our feelings. Take hold of your necklace when you are wearing it, and say the mantra a few times, to summon your strength and give yourself a feeling of hope.
