When I wore a ruby inlaied in gold I was excitable. Now I wear it inlaied in silver on the left hand and feel the great myself. As I can see gold is male energy which can overcharge you if you are a male.

@ That is for you to know if the gemstone suits you or not. Not all gems suit everyone. So you have to consult and expert as to which stone to be worn to get benefited.

I do not offer free Horoscope or Gemstone Consultations. Get your Horoscope checked by an Expert and wear the gem accordingly.

If Sun is weak and unfavorable in a Horoscope, health concerns like high blood pressure can happen. Ruby is the Gem Therapy Remedy for low and high Blood pressure. If you are facing problems when wearing ruby, you should remove it.

Hi!Anamika,

I was born on the 1st of June 1968 at 1145am,I have been advised to wear a ruby.But ever since I have bought one home my BP seems to be fluctuating.

Is this the right stone for me?

Anamika S 4 years ago from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India Author

@longfellow : Thanks for the suggestion. I have already mentioned the conflicting stones of Ruby in the Hub. And moreover, those who wear as astrological remedy are aware that they should wear the gem on the basis of a horoscope analysis from an expert.


longfellow 5 years ago

Hi Anamika.Your description of the Ruby is correct but please note that not everyone will benefit from wearing a Ruby. There are many permutations and combinations whereby learned astrologers suggest the Ruby as a remedy. Please mention these facts in your Articles on Gem stones.

A female should wear ruby ring on left hand ring finger as far as I know. If your Astrologer is a qualified person and has suggested you differently he may have his reasons to do so. And anyway, If you are doubtful about his recommendation there is no point in wearing it.


Jyotsna 5 years ago

My Astrologer told me to wear ruby of at least 2 carrats on my right hand ring finger and u suggested left hand ring finger m confused pls suggest

Ruby Gemstone represents the fire element which ignites passion and love. Gold is the Metal of Sun, so ruby should be worn in Gold on right hand ring finger for males and left hand ring finger for females. Copper can be used in place of Gold too.

priyanka: Why don't you consult your Astrologer on this regard? Ruby is normally worn on Gold and not silver. Wearing ruby set on ring is preferred. However, I do not see any problem in wearing it as pendant instead.


priyanka 6 years ago

Hi

My question is also same.

I am wearing ruby pendant in silver rather than a ring. I dont think it is suiting the way it should have been, i mean i really doint see any benefits as such whatever i have heard about?

so do u suggest me to change the pendant and get the ring made instaed?

Thanks

If you would have read the comment above you you would not have asked me this question. Thanks for the visit anyway.

Hi Anamika,

My astrologer told me to wear a Ruby ring, but i preferred to wear pendant. Is there harm in it?

Anamika S 6 years ago from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India Author

Yeah, It is okay.


harsh 6 years ago

Hi, I am wearing a ruby pendant made in gold. The astrologer told me it should be fine either in a gold ring or pendant, and I opted for a pendant. Is this fine?

Thanks,

Harsh

I have not heard of any such effects so far. On the other hand Ruby is known to make oneself confident, positive,optimistic and have leader like qualities. If you think ruby is having a negative effect on you then you should remove it. If you want to wear a gemstone as an astrological remedy then you should consult and expert astrologer regarding it.


Seeker 6 years ago

Some one suggested I wear a ruby ring, but when ever I wear it, I feel it reduces my thinking power. Does it have any effects such as this. Should I be wearing it? I do not have access to any pundit.

Thanks.

What i have written is correct. A male should wear Ruby set on Gold on the ring finger of the right hand and a female should wear it on left hand ring finger to be accurate. If your Astrologer has suggested you differently he may have his reasons to do so. Rather than suspecting or disbelieving you should do as he says.


Vishal 6 years ago

Thanks for the information of ruby.

here it is written that ruby is to be wear in ring finger,although my pandit ji advised me to wear it in middle(second) finger of right hand.And now iam confused.

Ruby, a very noble stone! Thanks for the description. Also, the Solar Mantra sounds very similar to one I know; very enlightening to see the connections to other emanations.
