How to select Gemstone
First, decide on the carat/Ratti weight suitable for you.
1 Carat = 0.200 Gram
Select preferred shape out of available shapes like; Oval, Cushion, Square, Rectangular etc.
Look for Gemstone within the budget as gemstone price range can be very wide; from very low to very high as per the quality (Origin, Color, Clarity, Cut, Carat & Uniqueness). Pricing of Gemstones is a matter of comparison of their quality.
So, our Gem Experts carefully grade Gemstones on all quality parameters & price them respectively.
Most Natural Gemstones have inclusions and the ones with no visible inclusions are extremely rare & expensive. So, select best possible gemstone within your budget. Highly included gemstones with dark inclusions, cracks & low transparency are cheap but not preferred for astrological purpose. Gemstones with less visible inclusions & good transparency are ideal for astrological purpose. Our Gemstone Experts guide you to select the best gemstones within your budget.
To be careful about
Always buy certified natural, untreated gemstone for astrological purpose. Unethical & unfair practices in the market lead to sale of synthetic, treated & artificial stones. Be advised to buy gemstone from reputed dealers only.
Many dealers offer buy back policies to boost sales, where used stones are taken back & sold again. Ideally, astrological gemstone should not be used by anyone before.
Gemstones are often treated to enhance their appearance & sold at much higher price. Few Common treatments are Heating, Dying, Glass Filling etc. It is not ethical to sell treated gemstone without disclosing it to the customer. Such treated gemstones may appear better, but not beneficial for astrological purpose. Gemstone Certificate from reputed laboratory always mentions if any treatment is present.
