Meaning may sometimes be determined by where the jewelry is worn.
For instance, necklaces lie near the throat, the center of communication. So, if a necklace felt very tight in the dream, this may indicate swallowing your words, or having communication strangled (see Choking).

Wearing excessive jewelry in a dream indicates that the individual envisioned tries to impress others with wealth or possessions.
Jewelry that is not worn, but seen as a central image in a dream, should be reviewed for its component parts, like noting the significance of gems or metals used in its construction. Or, if a specific image appears as the jewelry’s focal point, that can also have meaning.
For example, seeing an Egyptian ankh could represent renewed health or improved courage, whereas a pin depicting the zodiac sign Pisces might reflect a personal focus on productivity.

A dream of stealing jewelry is a signal that extra caution is needed in regard to business affairs; to lose jewelry is an obstacle dream and the meaning depends on whether or not you recovered it.
To give or receive jewelry, buy, or sell it pertains to love or domestic affairs and is considered a fortunate omen, whereas to wear it is a warning against impulsive behavior or shady transactions.
The meaning of any jewelry dream must also be correlated to the details, such as the type of the pieces, i. e., ring, necklace, earring, bracelet, etc., as well as the color and kind of the jewels.

If you are given an item of jewelry in your dream, this shows that you have the support of others, but if you give the jewelry, it suggests that you feel you have something to offer to other people.
If you find jewelry, your success will be due to your own efforts.
If the jewelry has a particular history, such as a family heirloom or the first piece of jewelry given by a partner, then it represents what you feel about family tradition, or your partner. Jewelry can also indicate love that is given or received. Very often it can represent how you feel about yourself, and for it to appear in a dream as something valuable or cheap gives you an indication of your self-esteem.
Items of jewelry
In dreams, items of jewelry represent a special and precious value or quality, such as love, loyalty, inner beauty, friendship or purity. Whether you are single or married, receiving a gift of jewelry in your dream denotes the love and the appreciation of the giver, so the purpose of such a dream may simply be to confirm or fulfill your desire for the love and affection of that person.
For centuries, a ring or band has been the symbol of marriage and partnership, and when a ring appears in your dream, it may represent commitment, fulfillment and completion. It may also signify a need for greater sexual fulfillment or commitment in a relationship.
Another interpretation is that the ring represents your essential self and wholeness, as the circle of a ring is never-ending and self- perpetuating. Bangles and bracelets also suggest wholeness and eternity through their circular shape. A wedding ring suggests a union and a promise, a ring belonging to the family suggests old traditions, whilst an engagement ring suggests a temporary promise of devotion.
An eternity ring would suggest that this promise is more permanent. Quite differently, a signet ring would indicate something that has been, or needs to be, sealed.
Necklaces arose from the wearing of a chain of office and therefore in dreams they suggest a dignity and honor bestowed on the wearer. Seeing someone wearing a necklace suggests a personal breakthrough.
If you lose a necklace, you may have been careless recently, but if you find a necklace, you have much to be grateful for.
If you steal a necklace, you should be careful not to take what isn’t yours.
If you are given a necklace and it breaks, this suggests that there is a weak link in a relationship. Wearing a beautiful necklace is wish-fulfillment, but if the necklace is heavy, you may feel dragged down and restricted in waking life, with heavy responsibilities.
Dreaming of wearing a crown or tiara suggests that you are being congratulated in some way in waking life, or deserve to be.
If the brooch in your dream was one of your own, your personal associations with the brooch, who gave it to you and what it means to you, should be your first consideration.
If it was being admired in your dream, you may be feeling pleased with yourself. Bear in mind a brooch is sometimes called a pin, so is someone trying to pin something on you or to blame you unfairly. Dream earrings may be drawing your attention to your ears. In waking life, are you getting the message from someone? Do you need to keep your ears open during waking hours?

If you give money away, this suggests a generosity of spirit or it might reflect emotional ties that are expected of you at present. Receiving money can suggest the acceptance of emotional support or the emotional needs of the dreamer. Borrowing money can be a warning to hold back as far as financial plans are concerned and to explore all aspects of the deal before going ahead. Making a payment, signing a check or using a credit card are thought to be positive signs that things are going to plan. The notion of saving and investing in dreams may refer to the need to prepare yourself emotionally for situations and relationships that need your attention
A wallet, purse or pocketbook containing personal items may relate to your private world, the kind of person you are and your interests.
If you dream of an expensive designer purse or bag, you may feel a need to have a more glamorous image. A worn purse may symbolize feelings of being worn out and shabby. Do you need to brighten up your identity so that you look and feel brighter? Your dream wallet may symbolize your private thoughts and desires, hidden from public view. Is your wallet full or empty? Are you worried that someone has got too close to you or on the contrary are you seeking greater intimacy? A bag in your dream may symbolically carry your hopes for the future. A heavy bag suggests more projects than you can handle, whilst an empty bag—far from meaning that you have no hope—suggests that you wish to search for new ideas. Frequently associated with fruit, a basket may evoke images of fertility and sexuality. Depending on what is in the basket, it can suggest youthful energy or ripe maturity.
Finally, items of jewelry are symbols of wishes and wish-fulfillment.
If you are given a gift of jewelry in your dream, you may be experiencing a sense of recognition in waking life. Viewing a rare jewel from a distance may be a sign that you have failed to understand the importance or meaning of an event or relationship. Losing a jewel may reflect fears of personal or financial loss in waking life. See also CRYSTALS, GEMSTONES AND ROCKS; MONEY AND SHOPPING.... The Element Encyclopedia
