Jewelry can be a fashion accessory but it can also symbolizes a spiritual truth for the wearer.

In many cases, religious jewelry tells a personal story. For example, jewelry is a common gift to give and receive during religious ceremonies or holidays.

We reached out to the Huffington Post Religion community asking what kind of religious jewelry they own and what it means to them. Do you treasure a piece of jewelry that has a spiritual meaning for you? Send a picture of it to religion@huffingtonpost.com with a few lines describing why you wear the item or what the story is behind your symbol of faith

Below is a slideshow of pictures and stories from our readers.
