” Pure, flawless gems have auspicious powers which can protect one from demons, snakes, poisons, diseases, sinful reactions, and other dangers, while flawed stones have the opposite effect.
Above verses are mentioned in the Hindu “Garuda Puranam,” chapter 68, verse 17, it is stated by narrator Sri Suta Goswami.
Platinum is a white metal so it looks very similar to white gold or sterling silver.It has become very popular for Rings and wedding bands in jewelry. Many of the worlds most precious gemstones, including the Hope Diamond, have Platinum settings.
Few reasons for this are —
1-.Platinum can be worn at any time. Since it is a white metal, it will go with virtually everything.
2-Platinum is a hypoallergenic metal and it is highly resistance to tarnish .
3-Platinum rings are extremely strong and durable.
4-The platinum wedding band is known for a bright, almost wet, shiny white-silver look, high durability.
5-Platinum is one of the heaviest metal wedding bands.
6-Platinum seems to be the new symbol of wealth and prestige. Think of the “platinum credit card,” which often has better benefits and privileges than the “gold credit card.
On the flip side- It is more expensive than gold, hence ‘Platinum’ rings can be expensive to resize or repair.

There is often confusion over whether to make your Stone jewelry in 18carat gold or 22carat!
18 carat gold contains 75% gold, with the rest made up of other more durable metal alloys used to add colour and strength. It is hard compared to 22carat gold. It can withstand the stone more effectively in setting.
22 carat gold – is very soft, as it consists of around 91.6% gold and so it’s not ideal for stone set jewellery, being more suitable for plain gold jewellery, such as wedding bands. Soft gold can easily change the shape over long use and can make stone settings loose, which can be risky.
This Organic Gemstone, red in color popularly known as “Coral” or Moonga in Hindi.
Corals used for astrology purpose come in different shapes- most commonly used are – Capsule, Triangle, Ganesh Coral.
A Triangular red coral is also referred to as the Lakshmi Moonga ruled by the Goddess of wealth. This particular “Lakshmi Moonga” is primarily the invention of certain Astrologers and traders and in majority used in North India.Astrologers believe that , this particular shape has more powers as compared to others.
I personally feel,any shape shall work provided the basic criteria are met- Coral worn should be genuine, natural and not plastic!
Red Coral should be mounted in Copper/Gold metal Ring and wear in Ring finger of working hand (left or right).
Red Coral stone must touch your finger skin. Red coral should be worn on Tuesday Morning during sunrise.
I came across this Gem through my customer once—, “Do you have Pitambhari Neelam?”
I did my research on the same, in fact I had gems with both color tones mixed ,yellow and blue. Never knew they had very powerful influence in Vedic astrology.
Pitambari is a word derived from Peet( Yellow) and Ambar( Like Blue Sky). Pitambari Neelam is a Bi colored Sapphire that clearly exhibits both the yellow and the Blue color. This beautiful gemstone is also known as Ganga- Jamuna( After the two sacred rivers) in common Hindi language. A very powerful Gemstone it should be used when Saturn is posited in the signs of Jupiter or when Saturn and Jupiter combine together in the horoscope and Saturn period is in operation. The Same logic applies to Jupiter. A very powerful Gemstone it is to be worn only after proper recommendation. The consecration of this gemstone has some additional steps which render this even more powerful.
The stone is one of the most effective for those people who are having a tough financial struggle and are finding it difficult to match up with the current times of financial instability and often price hikes over various commodities. Additionally, it provides financial support to people in their work and business front as well. The Pitambari Neelam is said to have immense impact if people wear it along with gold.
