18 carat Gold or 22carat Gold

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.

Pitambhari Neelam

IMG_2995I 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.
