This “Far Above Rubies” Necklace is a great tool to help you live your life with the right mindset.
Knowing your value as a Christian woman is key to living the virtuous life, with value far above rubies (hence the “Far Above Rubies” Necklace). Proverbs 31:10 says, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” I believe the kind of thoughts we think about ourselves is important. Proverbs 23:7 explains the importance of right thinking, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:”
Do we think like the virtuous woman or do we tell ourselves we can never measure up? There are so many things that we can say that this woman did well, but I believe understanding happens when we realize that she did what she could with what she had for the people that God had given to her in her care. “She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.” Proverbs 31:27
She knew the needs of her own household. Whenever I was a young wife and mom I would compare myself to the woman in this chapter, and become discouraged with my progress. After much thought and prayer, the Lord gave me peace through verse 27. It’s not our job to make sure we measure up to all the other ladies. Not that we shouldn’t be willing to learn and grow from others, but that’s not our measuring stick. The ingredients to living a virtuous life are found in verse 30, “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.”
If we want to live the virtuous life where our value to others exceeds far above the value of rubies, we must be grounded in our identity in Jesus Christ. Walking with Jesus on a daily basis sets our goals, determines our priorities, and motivates our progress.

Caring for your JMC Jewelry:
Due to the fragility of the glass and crystal used in these necklaces, please make sure to handle your jewelry pieces with care. Either hang up jewelry on a hook of some kind, keep in muslin bag, or secure in a jewelry box. Be careful not to spray perfumes directly on your jewelry pieces so that you can receive as much wear as possible. If glass needs to be cleaned, take a clean paper towel dipped in rubbing alcohol and gently wipe the glass. Do not submerge under water.
