How to select a jewellery or vedic gemstone

Since ancient times, gemstones have been worn for astrological and jewelry purposes. The selection of a gemstone depends largely on its aesthetic value ,durability and looks, however, the criteria for selecting an astrological gemstone is more complex. It involves astrological calculations and requires an in-depth analysis of the individual’s horoscope (Kundli) by a learned astrologer. Since gemstones used for astrological purposes can have an effect on the career, finance, profession and personal life , we recommend consulting an expert astrologer prior to purchasing one , you can also fill the gem recommendation form to verify which gemstone suits you.

The quality of a gemstone is derived majorly on 5 factors, CUT, COLOUR, CLARITY, CARAT (weight), and last but not the least is Origin. When it comes to astrological gemstones, astrologers generally recommend the weight of the stone in carat or ratti. (calculation) Colour and Clarity basically emphasis on saturation of a gemstone and the transparency in the gemstone .

What should i be careful about gem selection & certification

Gemstones are not just worn as jewellery they are also worn as an astrological purpose, when worn as an astrological purpose , it is very important that gemstone should be 100% natural unheated and untreated i.e. free from any kind of treatment. As a buyer you should be aware of common practice by a jeweller or any person who can do some kind of cheating or fraud, by giving synthetic, heated or treated or may look like gemstones.

It is advisable to always go for genuine lab certified gemstone which should clearly indicate the authenticity and any kind of treatment in the gemstone, and hallmarked jewellery is a good way to ensure the best value of money. When purchasing a rare or expensive gemstone with an origin in mind, one should always go for a certificate which clearly indicates the origin of a gemstone, some famous labs in the world which indicate are as , GIA, IGI, GRS, etc.

Note:- Origin of a natural basra pearl is not mentioned in a certificate as it is very difficult to find out, they just mention the mollusk and species.

How should one wear a gemstone astrologically

Once you have been prescribed to wear a gemstone, the question arises, how should it be worn ?What is the right way to wear a gemstone?

Gemstones can be best worn in the form of jewellery, like a ring or a pendant or a bracelet. The selection of a metal( silver / gold /copper ) and jewelry setting that compliment the gem’s physical and astrological properties is a crucial step to ensure maximum positive results and maintain the gem's quality for a longer time. Some vedic norms are also involved in the selection of a right metal and jewelry design for an astrological gemstone . For example, yellow sapphire gives better results in gold, and as an astrological purpose one should wear a proper ring in a finger with stone touching your body.

As per the sacred vedas, each planet has been assigned a particular metal in which its gemstone gives fruitful results. Another important aspect is to ensure that the gemstone is touching the wearer’s skin properly after being studded in a jewelry piece. Those who believe in Pooja rituals, must follow the right vedic procedure to wear a gemstone (Ratna Dharan Karne Ki Vidhi ) to attain maximum benefits in their life. In simple words there is a proper dharan vidhi for each and every astrological gemstone .

Where should i purchase from ??

Being aware of these factors that affect gemstone quality and price help in avoiding the chances of buying unauthentic gemstones at unfair prices. Before selecting a gemstone, it is important to know how a minor variation in quality, carat size, cut or origin can bring a huge difference in the gemstone price.

Color, clarity, cut and carat weight are some conventional factors considered while purchasing a gemstone.
