EMF protection, everywhere you go. It’s an appealing concept, isn’t it?
That’s what EMF protection necklaces claim to deliver. EMF protection carried around your neck, combating the negative effects of radiation while you’re at work, traveling, and on the go. So what exactly are these promising devices? How do they work? We’re going to be covering all that and more in the next several paragraphs.
What is an EMF protection necklace?
An EMF protection necklace is a device worn around the neck that shields from EMF radiation. Many of these necklaces consist of a pendant and chain, with the pendant providing the bulk of the protective properties. Some of these necklaces offer additional benefits, such as improved sleep, mental clarity, and increased energy.
The drawback is these necklaces have usually not been studied extensively. Therefore, it’s important to:
1. Take any manufacturer’s claims with a grain of salt
2. Trust your gut when making a purchasing decision
3. Test the necklace yourself and see if you sense/feel any benefit (this is the true test!).
How do they work?
EMF protection necklaces work in different ways, depending on the necklace. Some rely on a combination of healing and protective stones and crystals to neutralize the effects of EMF radiation on the body. Others such as the Qlink, which we’ll talk about shortly, use their own patented technology to protect against EMF radiation.
Who should wear one?
EMF protection necklaces are great for anyone who suffers from Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS). EHS sufferers experience symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, fatigue, and itchiness when they are in close proximity to electromagnetic frequencies. EMF protection necklaces may help alleviate these symptoms.
In addition to sufferers of EHS, anyone who is frequently surrounded by electronics and power lines may also benefit from an EMF protection necklace.
Top 7 EMF Protection Necklaces
Sifting through all the available EMF protection necklaces out there can be a daunting task. That’s why we’ve put together this list. Read on for the top 7 EMF protection necklaces of 2020.
7. Orgonite Crystal Healing Pendant
This healing pendant from Orgonite Crystal features a colorful design that makes use of the seven chakra stones, including amethyst, jasper, and citrine. The necklace itself is hand crafted and comes with an adjustable cord for added versatility. From a mental standpoint, this pendant is supposed to bring about positivity, energy, and creativity.
Because the pendant is made from orgonite, it may provide some degree of EMF protection, as well. Orgonite itself isn’t found it nature. Rather, it is a composite of different materials, including metals. Certain metals can attenuate, or reduce, the presence of EMF radiation. Although it hasn’t been extensively studied, anecdotally, orgonite is thought to shield against EMF radiation.
6. Dr. Valerie Nelson’s EMF Protection Pendant Necklace
If you’re looking for an EMF protection necklace that looks a little more stylish, consider Dr. Valerie Nelson’s EMF Protection Pendant Necklace. Made from shungite and other protective crystals and stones, the manufacturer claims this necklace can neutralize the harmful effects of EMF radiation on your body using healing frequencies.
Available in a wide range of styles and designs, Dr. Valerie Nelson’s EMF Protection Necklace is ideal for those who want to wear their necklace in an office setting or who want something that doesn’t look like a typical EMF protection pendant.
5. LUXAR EMF Protection Necklace
The EMF Protection Necklace from LUXAR is made from black tourmaline and crystal orgone. We’ve briefly covered the potentially protective properties of orgone. Black tourmaline, it turns out, may also help attenuate EMF radiation. LUXAR also claims their necklace is useful for clearing negativity from the wearer’s life, boosting energy levels, and making the wearer feel grounded.
LUXAR’s necklace consists of a 1.75-inch long pendant that has been hung on an adjustable black cord. The packaging is attractive, as well, and includes a fabric bag and a box to protect the necklace during transport. Overall, this is an affordably priced, attractive necklace that receives positive reviews.
4. Q-Link Pendant
The Q-Link pendant is so well-known we’ve dedicated an entire article to it. Worn by celebrities and professional athletes, the Qlink pendant is said to improve athletic performance, increase mental clarity and focus, neutralize EMF radiation, and aid in sleep. We won’t go into too much detail about the why or how here as it’s already been covered in our guide. Basically, however, the Qlink relies on a unique technology called Sympathetic Resonance Technology (SRT) to mimic the frequency of the wearer. SRT allows the Qlink to provide a host of proven benefits to the wearer.
3. eLink EMF Neutralizer
The EMF Neutralizer from eLink is a little different than other pendants on this list. Rather than rely on stones, crystals, and negative ions for EMF protection, this pendant uses the same protective material that shields your computer’s CPU. As eLink points out, a computer’s CPU would not be able to function if it were subject to all the electromagnetic interference inside of the device. Shielding the CPU protects it from that electromagnetic interference — so perhaps, the same materials could be used to shield humans, as well.
It’s an interesting concept, and admittedly, one that hasn’t been rigorously scientifically tested. Still, many wearers of the eLink EMF Neutralizer have noted relief from their EHS symptoms, and that alone makes it a necklace worth trying.
2. Quanthor EMF Protection Pendant
This necklace from Quanthor has a unique design that allows you to switch out the pendant’s backdrop color. There are eight different felt circles– orange, grey, black, green, purple, blue, red, and yellow. To swap one out, simply twist off the pendant’s lid. Inside there is a felt pad on top of an EMF neutralizing disc. Take out the old felt pad and replace it with a new color. Before closing the pendant back up, add one or two drops of your favorite essential oil to the felt pad.
The disc underneath the pendant is what provides the EMF protection. According to Quanthor, this EMF neutralizer uses technology that has been certified by the California Institute of Electronics and Materials Science to provide 90% EMF protection.
1. Karelian Heritage Elite Shungite Crystal Pendant
Karelian Heritage’s Elite Shungite Crystal Pendant is one of the most effective EMF protection necklaces out there. That’s because it’s made from pure elite shungite, which has been shown to have various protective properties against radiation. Note that because it’s made from raw elite shungite rock, each pendant is a unique shape. Shungite in general, however, is a lustrous grey stone.
This pendant is made from Type I elite shungite. To learn more about the different types of shungite, see our guide (internal link). Suffice it to say, however, that Type I is the most protective form of shungite, making this necklace a truly powerful piece of jewelry. Karelian Heritage claims it’s useful for chakra balancing, meditation, EMF protection, and healing rituals.
Testing your necklace
If you’ve purchased an EMF protection necklace, it’s natural to want to test it. One way to do this is simply by wearing it and recording how you feel. If you’re electromagnetically sensitive and your necklace works as advertised, you should notice a difference in your symptoms almost immediately. If, on the other hand, you feel nothing at all, it may not be working for you.
Most EMF protection necklaces claim to neutralize the effects of EMF radiation on the body — they don’t actually reduce the amount of EMF radiation present in the atmosphere. Therefore an EMF meter won’t be able to detect any measurable reduction in EMF radiation around the necklace in most cases.
If you’re worried about EMF radiation, an EMF necklace is one way to protect yourself. It should by no means be the only way — there are a whole host of other things you can do, including going wired, installing a smart meter cover, swapping out your LED and CFL light bulbs, and installing a protective bed canopy in the bedroom (internal link). But an EMF protection necklace can be an important piece of an overall puzzle, especially for those suffering from EHS.
