Gold ornaments absorb the Chaitanya frequencies associated with Tej easily and in greater proportion. These Chaitanya frequencies are emitted too. Due to these frequencies, the Sun channel (Surya-nadi) of the woman gets activated. Consequently, the Divine Energy (Shakti) Principle present in the woman is activated.

A quote in Atharvaveda delineates:
अग्ने: प्रजातं परि यत् हिरण्यम्
अमृतं दघ्रे अधि मर्त्येषु ।
य एनव्देद स इदेनमर्हति
जरामृत्युर्भवति यो बिभर्ति ।। – अथर्ववेद, काण्ड १९, सूक्त २६, ऋचा १
This means that, I adorn gold created or orginated from fire which bestows eternity. One who adorns it is liberated from the fear of untimely death.
Spiritual experience: On looking at gold, spiritual healing occurring and experience of coolness on the head and pleasant sensation on the tongue
2.1 Adorning gold ornaments in the upper part of the body
In the ancient tradition of adorning ornaments, an important point is that gold ornaments are adorned above the waist. The spiritual reason for this is that gold ornaments have predominance of the Absolute Fire Principle. Through this one is protected from the negative energies active in the direction 8 to 10 feet upwards from the ground. Also, due to gold the negative energies have distress.
3. Importance of silver ornaments
The silver ornaments should only be adorned in the lower parts of the body. Also, some ornaments are made only from silver, for example anklets. Silver ornaments primarily include anklets or Payal. The person adorning silver ornaments also gains Divine Chaitanya. Generally, silver ornaments are adorned below the waist.
3.1 Spiritual science underlying adorning silver ornaments below the waist
Silver has more ability to absorb the raja tatva predominant, Chaitanya laden desire frequencies. By adorning silver ornaments below the waist, the woman is protected from the distressing Absolute Earth and Water Element frequencies emitted from Hell. In this way by adorning silver anklets, the negative energies cannot enter a woman’s body easily. Similarly she is protected by all the ornaments like griddle, toe rings etc.
Being ignorant about this importance, nowadays women have thoughts like not adorning bangles, removing Mangalasutra while sleeping and actually removing the other ornaments around the neck. These thoughts are implanted by negative energies itself. By the getting the women to discard their ornaments, the negative energies can easily attack them. Hence, bearing in mind this deceit of negative energies, one should regularly adorn ornaments.

4.2 Effects of adorning artificial ornaments
With changing times, due to insecurity, many women adorn artificial ornaments. Others elucidate soe distress like rashes due to ornaments. But in reality, the women are unaware that it is the act of negative energies. Due to artificial ornaments, women are not able to absorb the Deity Principle present in the environment because of which it becomes easy for the negative energies to attack them. Bearing in mind this thought, as far as possible one should adorn gold and silver ornaments itself.
4.3 Importance of spiritual emotion (Bhav) when adorning ornaments
Only the Hindu culture advocates adorning ornaments on the head, neck, ear, nose, waist, feet that is the complete body. Hindu Dharma advocates that on some occasions women should adorn special ornaments. For example, on festivals, marriage etc, women should adorn an armlet and girdle. For gaining spiritual benefit of ornaments, it is not necessary to adorn all ornaments. As per one’s financial condition some selected ornaments can suffice. Reason for this is that instead of which and how many ornaments one adorns, the underlying spiritual emotion (Bhav) is important. If a person has Bhav towards the adorned ornament only then that ornament through the associated Deity Principle can bestow maximum benefit.
