Cost of Gem Bangles

General Bangle Pricing

When people ask me how much a nine gem bangle costs, I generally give the following ballpark figures. However, it's important to realize that often we make bangles in stages when the client's budget cannot afford all the gems at once. Often an individual can comfortably afford 4 or 5 gemstones but not the more expensive ones. This is a great way of moving forward positively with an expectation of getting the full bangle in a year or two. We call them Starter Bangles and they are great way to get the karmically improving project started. Often individuals never start getting a bangle because they think they have to get all of them at once and its just too big an expenditure.

Full nine gem bangle using mostly uncut gems and a White Beryl for Venus, including all silver and setting costs: $2900

Full nine gem bangle using mostly uncut gems and a Diamond for Venus, including all silver and setting costs: $4,000 - $5000

Full nine gem bangle using mostly faceted gems, including all silver and setting costs: $8000 - $10500

Full nine gem bangle using mostly faceted gems, set in gold: approximately $18,000

Some of the examples below refer to bangles that were sold years ago. With the U.S. dollar's devaluation and the availability of astrological quality gems, prices frequently change. Please contact us for an accurate current quote.

In addition to our US Office, our Navaratnas are also available for purchase from our office in Jaipur, India. For more details, please contact us.

 

Bangle Example # 1 Budget Bangle

With all stones we sell, if a client wants to upgrade a gem in the future, I offer a full money back guarantee as long as the stone is being traded back in for its primary equivalent or of the same variety but of higher quality. This generally has to be done in person by the client visiting the shop as the low markup does not allow for the time involved with posting and packing etc. Because of this clients like the following bangle purchaser can relax that the hard earnt money they are putting towards a bangle does not get wasted if they decide later they want a more appropriate stone or one of higher quality. Sometimes a client may take a few years before they are really happy that they have reached their goal gem wise. The only two stones I do not always buy back at full price are the pearl and the red coral. This is because over time they both can shrink due to wear and tear and this devalues them.

Diamond:

No Diamond. The person opted to go with White Beryl instead.

Uncut Yellow Beryl Crystal: 4.30 cts @ $45 per ct = $193

Uncut Blue Sapphire Crystal 3.70 cts @ $65 per ct = $240

Quartz Catseye: 3.20 cts @ $35 per ct = $112

Red Coral 4.50 cts = $120

Pearl 9.10 cts = $90

Hydrothermal Lab Ruby 5.70 cts @ $95 per ct = $541

Emerald 7.40 cts @ $48 per ct = $355

Laboratory-grown faceted Emerald. Like the ruby, it is all of superior quality.

Uncut Hessonite Garnet 6.40cts @ $20 per ct = $128

Tumble polished, medium quality stone with good fire but has a pit on the surface edge.

White Beryl facet cut oval 8.0 @ $36 per ct = $288

Silver Gem Setting $50 per piece times 9 pieces = $450

Expandable Spring Links $35 per link times 11 links = $385

Bangle Total = $2,902

 
 

Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on astrological laws


 

Bangle Example # 2 - Budget Bangle

Diamond: No Diamond

This person opted to go with a White Beryl instead. While it's a great astrological gem, it's not as potent as the much harder Diamond. At $36 per carat, we could choose a nice, large White Beryl to compensate for that.This person later upgraded to a Diamond. In the case of any upgrade, we will buy back all substitute stones at full price.

Yellow Beryl Crystal: 6.90 cts @ $45 per ct = $310

Yellow Beryl is a powerful stone with great color that many people prefer to the Yellow Sapphire. It is also very economical. This was an uncut stone, but we also have faceted Yellow Beryl.

Uncut Blue Sapphire 2.47 cts @ $65 per ct = $160

This was a very good quality, natural, unheated, deep Blue Sapphire.

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 2.90 cts @ $85 per ct = $246

This is an incredibly low price for a Chrysoberyl Catseye. It's an adequate astrological stone, but a good candidate for an upgrade one day if the client so chooses.

Red Coral 7.60 cts $40 total = $304

This was a good-sized Coral. Because the piece was of a more pale color, we were able to bring down the price.

Pearl 5.98 cts $80 total = $80

Ruby 3.6 cts @ $175 per ct = $630

We use superior quality laboratory-grown Ruby crystal grown by methods that result in a genuine Ruby, not a chemical melt mix synthetic.

Emerald 7.10 cts @ $ 48 per ct = $340

Laboratory-grown faceted Emerald. Like the Ruby, it is all of superior quality.

Hessonite Garnet Uncut 9.20 cts @ $24 per ct = $220

Tumble-polished, high quality stone.

White Beryl 13.76 cts @ $36 per ct = $495

All White Beryl is of superior quality, but it is not nearly as powerful a stone as the Diamond. Beryls are quite hard (Emerald is a beryl) but the Diamond is still many times harder. A great part of the lifeforce in a gem comes from its hardness and size. White Beryl is considered to be a Venus stone, but our experience has shown that this is by no means a comparable gem to the Diamond. As stated earlier, the person later upgraded to a Diamond.

Silver Gem Setting $50 per piece times 9 pieces = $450

Expandable Spring Links $35 per link times ...4 links = $140

Bangle Total = $3,375

 
 

 

Bangle Example #3

This person was budget conscious, so we put together a bangle that contained a lot of uncut stones for maximum benefit at minimal price.

White beryl: 6.00 cts @ $18 per ct = $108

Our high end uncut diamond normally costs about $750 per carat. A diamond with a few minor inclusions can help bring the cost down.

Uncut Yellow Beryl Crystal: 2.24 cts @ $45 per ct = $100

Normally when dealing with uncut stones, we like to go with bigger stones, to compensate for small imperfections that tend to be found in uncut material. A 2.24 carat uncut stone is small, but this person had a very strong Jupiter and this stone was particularly clean.

Uncut Blue Sapphire Crystal: 2.70 cts @ $65 per ct = $175

The outstanding feature of this stone is the deep blue color which unlike 99% of most faceted deep blue stones is definitely unheated as a friend of mine in Australia that owns the sapphire mine supplies me directly. These crystals are bought for there flattish shape that allows for a comfortable and large skin contact which allows for maximum electro-magnetic radiation's transfer.

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 2.05 cts @ $260 per ct = $533

A top of the line Chrysoberyl Catseye can quickly get up to eight or nine hundred dollars per carat. And even then I have some extraordinary specimens in the milk and honey variety that leap past the $1000 a carat range. Though this price is dictated by fashion and rarity and not the quality of the gems homogenous catseye phenomenon.

Once again, because this person was budget conscious and had a strong Ketu, we chose a low carat, mid-range stone.

Red Coral 3 cts = $90

Mars is this person's strongest planet, so he did not need much coral. He got a small piece with a deep red color. Often we have clients who have a well placed coral but still express weaker Mars indications like sensitivity to the cold or lack of physical energy. I like to stress that as we get older our receptivity to planetary energies gets severely weakened and this is part of the condition for many . However for remedial strategy to combat this a coral necklace is wonderful tool to experiment with to evaluate its often dramatic usefulness. It can be worn for a few days when one feels low on energy or is combating a cold winter and removed when summer is flying its warm colors and are fitness is coming around.

Natural Seawater Pearl 6.18 cts = $310

Normally pearl is only around $100 total, but this person happened to fall in love with a high end piece and wanted it despite his budget. Sometimes people are drawn to certain stones.

Ruby 2.50 cts @ $330 per ct = $820

All of our laboratory-grown ruby crystal is genuine and very clean without enhancement.

Emerald 10.50 cts @ $44 per ct = $462

The emerald is laboratory-grown as well, also flawless. 10.5 carats is on the large size for an emerald. Most people get around 7 or 8 carats.

Hessonite Garnet Uncut 5.70 cts @ $16 per ct = $91

This person chose an uncut hessonite over cut because of the incredibly low price of uncut compared to faceted. (Faceted hessonite costs between $90 and $120 per carat for clean weightier material.)

Silver Gem Setting $50 per piece times 9 pieces = $450

Expandable Spring Links $35 per link times 6 links = $210

Bangle total $3,349

 
 

 

Bangle Example # 4

Uncut Diamond: 3.97 cts @ $690 per ct = $2739

Good quality diamond. A few minor inclusions brought the price down by $60 per carat.

Uncut Yellow Sapphire: 4.06 cts @ $130 per ct = $527

A typical price for our uncut Yellow Sapphire crystals.

Uncut Blue Sapphire 3.38 cts @ $65 per ct = $219

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 2.10 cts @ $205 per ct = $430

The eye was not sharp, nor obviously visible indoors. This accounted for the low cost of the stone.

Red Coral 4.09 cts = $120

A good piece with a deep, red color.

Pearl 9.70 cts = $90

Once again, a good quality piece.

Ruby 3.62 cts @ $330 per ct = $1194

Uncut Laboratory-grown Ruby crystal.

Emerald 9.22 cts @ $44 per ct = $405

Laboratory-grown faceted Emerald. Like the ruby, it is all of superior quality.

Uncut Hessonite Garnet 5.90cts @ $18 per ct = $106

Tumble polished, high quality stone.

Silver Gem Setting $50 per piece times 9 pieces = $450

Expandable Spring Links $35 per link times 5 links = $175

Bangle Total = $6,455

 
 

 

Bangle Example # 5 Cloud Design

silver crystal healing nine gem bangle
Cloud Design Bangle

Uncut Diamond: 4.44 cts @ $690 per ct = $3063

Our best quality Diamond is normally $750 per carat, this person found a piece she was particularly drawn to for $690. 4.44 cts is a good size for a Diamond and can sometimes be as much as half the cost of the bangle. The Diamond is by far the most powerful stone.

Faceted Yellow Beryl: 2.59 cts @ $110 per ct = $284

Faceted Yellow Beryl starts at around $85 per carat, but this stone had particularly good canary yellow color. Also, as the carats increase, so does the price per carat. A high quality faceted 6 carat Yellow Beryl, for example, might cost around $150 per carat.Yellow Beryls often have color stronger than most unheated Yellow Sapphires.

Faceted Blue Sapphire 2.21 cts @ $330 per ct = $729

This was a deep midnight Blue Sapphire, an excellent astrological choice and less costly than cornflower blues. (She could have gotten a deep blue uncut Sapphire, but insisted on faceted stones.)

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 2.71 cts @ $290 per ct = $785

This person wanted a large Diamond which accounted for much of the budget, so she chose to go with a mid-range quality Catseye.

Red Coral 6.04 cts = $150

Mars was this person's strongest planet, so she did not need to spend much on the Coral. Although heavy in weight, it was lower-priced than a barrel shaped Coral or a high end cabochon.

Pearl 8.15 cts = $90

Most of our good quality Pearls are between $80 and $100. We have exceptional quality for more, but astrologically it is not necessary to spend more.

Ruby 4.80 cts @ $330 per ct = $1584

Uncut laboratory-grown Ruby crystal.

Emerald 8.21 cts @ $44 per ct = $361

Laboratory-grown faceted Emerald. Like the Ruby, it is all of superior quality.

Faceted Hessonite Garnet 3.02 cts @ $ 90 per ct = $271

For astrological purposes, this person could have done better going with uncut tumble-polished Hessontie. But because she wanted all faceted stones, she got a superior quality hessonite for $90 per carat.

Silver Gem Setting $50 per piece times 9 pieces = $450

Expandable Spring Links $35 per link times 7 links = $245

Bangle Total = $8,012

 
 

  Bangle Example # 6 - High End Bangle

Every stone on this bangle was the highest possible quality.

Uncut Diamond: 2.39 cts @ $750 per ct = $1792

Faceted Yellow Sapphire: 3.90 cts @ $1100 per ct = $4290

Faceted Blue Sapphire 2.65 cts @ $670 per ct = $1775

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 2.35 cts @ $990per ct = $2326

Red Coral 6.60 cts = $330

Natural Seawater Pearl (Tahitian Keshi) 6.98 cts = $420

Faceted Hessonite Garnet 4.65 cts @ $ 90 per ct = $418

Silver Gem Setting $50 per piece times 9 pieces = $450

Expandable Spring Links $35 per link times 9 links = $315

Bangle Total = $14,449

 
 

 

Bangle Example # 7 - Gold Bangle

gold crystal healing nine gem bangle
Gold Bangle - Standard Design

When a customer gets a gold bangle, we make no profit on the cost of the gold. We charge only what it costs us to have the material cast.

This person had a bit more of a budget, so she was able to go with better quality, faceted stones. She also had the luxury of getting the bangle done in gold, which added and additional $10,800 to the cost of the bangle and weighed over four and half ounces.

We strongly advise having the piece made in 22 karat gold as the purity of metal provides an added benefit to the wearer. From a metallurgical point the gold is very soft but this can be overcome by a special process treatment at the casting stage. When a client selects silver I can buy back the setting and the stone at full price if the client wants to upgrade or utilize the ten day return policy. I do not however offer this service if the client wants to go in gold. To overcome this risk I often advise that the individual get all the stones set in silver first and then when they are completely happy with the gem selection and the effects for them, they can have the bangle remade in gold and I will buy back the spring links at full price and they will only pay the average $50 Per gem setting charge.

Diamond: 3.40 cts @ $750 per ct = $2550

She got our highest quality uncut diamond.

Yellow Sapphire: 4.07 cts @ $640 per ct = $2604

4.07 carats is on the large side for faceted yellow sapphire. $640 per carat got her a rather pale stone.

Faceted Blue Sapphire: 4.32 cts @ $550 per ct = $2376

She also got a large mid-range Blue Sapphire.

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 3.79 cts @ $520 per ct = $1970

Red Coral 5.56 cts = $220

Pearl 8.01 cts = $100

Ruby 3.15 cts @ $330 per ct = $1039

Emerald 9.70 cts @ $44 per ct = $426

Hessonite Garnet Uncut 8.93 cts @ $24 per ct = $214

Gold Gem Setting $100 per piece times 9 pieces = $900

Cost of Gold spring links, gold blanks that gems are set in = $9800

Bangle total $22,199
