With time we learn our own colour code and a universal one. A colour code, which has also been learned and adopted, by those who make the objects that surround us.

Morton Walker has dedicated a book to this power that colour has. In fact, this podiatry specialist has devoted his career to various medical problems and documenting the influence of colour on us. Called Dr. Walker gave a voice to all the innovative physicians and entrepreneurs who advocated and acted on their theories that the human body can enhance its inherent healing mechanisms with the addition of natural substances.

Colour has an effect on us but it can also affect things. Which can give a whole new dimension and purpose to them. For examples, vinyl. They are first of all auditory works of art. But thanks to their colour, they became visual works of art. So much so, that sometimes vinyls are more used as interior decorations than listen to. Many types of vinyl over the years have changed from the basic black vinyl to a colourful or even patterned vinyl and cover. A double use, possible thanks to the colours and their invaluable power.

In the same way, jewellery is used for its colour. Either to upgrade an outfit or perfecting a style, the choice of them can be very personal. At the same time, a gem depending on its colour will have different properties. Either to bring calmness, keep the bad energies away or simply for motivation. This can also be the reason for the choice of it. Therefore, jewellery with the power of colour can be chosen either for its aesthetic or proprieties link to it.
