Frequently Asked Questions

What is your view on Navaratna Rings?

The nine stone ring or the navaratna ring in my view is extremely unscientific in that the gems are exceptionally small and very seldom touch the skin. They are at  best a token of respect to the seemingly lost science of genuine navaratnas that actually make a difference.

The rings can cost from $40 to $190 depending on the stones, but   generally  the gems are always well under a quarter of a carat each. The gems are so tiny that even if they had very good skin contact, the electromagnetic radiations from the gems simply could not enhance a transfer of benign energy large enough to significantly affect your karmic magnetism.

These rings have become popular in India amongst a few because they are eminently inexpensive and the salespeople will sell the idea that good fortune comes from wearing them. I have never witnessed this from the many I have met who have worn them.

If a magnet is to have an effect it works best touching the metal object.

With gems, their subtle energy is so slight to the feelings of the average person that for response, I generally insist on the largest area of the gem set touching the skin which often means setting the gem upside down. I emphasize this even though it costs me sales due to the many customers who insist on the beauty of the cut gems being highly visible. However I have no choice as I have had  testimonials from clients who have worn these gems both ways. The gems work much more powerfully when they have the very best skin contact with the largest area touching the body.

Swami Sri Yukteswar in the spiritual classic "Autobiography of a Yogi" was quoted by Paramahansa Yogananda as saying "Electrical and magnetic radiations are ceaselessly circulating in the universe; they affect man's body for good and ill. Ages ago our rishis pondered the problem of combating the adverse effects of subtle cosmic influences. The sages discovered that pure metals emit an astral light which is powerfully counteractive to negative pulls of the planets. Certain plant combinations were also found to be helpful. Most effective of ally are faultless jewels of not less than two carats.

"The practical preventive uses of astrology have seldom been seriously studied outside of India. One little known fact is that the proper jewels, metals and plant reparations are valueless unless the required weight is secured and unless the remedial agent is worn next to the skin."

If cost is a serious factor then I would recommend a necklace with as many good quality gems that are of crystal origin along with the pearl and coral. But make sure it is balanced. Another wonderful necklace is the rudraksha mala.
