@Haseen I am not offering any sort of consultations (neither free nor paid). If I start doing that I would not have time for anything else. So I suggest you get your Horoscope done by a good Astrologer and wear gemstone remedies based on your horoscope chart. However, Emerald should suit you as it is your Birthstone and also the gemstone of the planet which signifies love and relationships. Rose Quartz would be beneficial to you too. This is my general assessment without looking into the Horoscope chart.

@Manisha The answer is no. Try buying through reputed Jewelry Stores where they give a Certificate of Authenticity. Even you can buy online from sellers who provide that.

Dear Anamlka,

In reference to the above post regarding wearing pendant instead of ring of yellow sapphire, would it still have the same effect if worn as pendant? I want to make sure the benefits will be the same as this is a costly stone, and don't want to do the wrong thing. And if you could recommend a place in Mumbai on where the best services and prices are to purchase this stone, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

@Maulik : It is advisable you wear a single stone weighing 3.5 carets than 2 stones

@Manisha It is advisable to wear the stone set in a ring as they could be worn on the finger denoting the particular planet.

However, If that is not an option you may wear it as a pendant.

Dear Anamika,

I was advised to wear yellow sapphire-3 carats on index finger as Jupiter is weak, and am having lots of problems with finances and married life. My question to you is I will find it difficult to wear on finger. Would it be okay to wear as pendant around my neck. Thank you kindly for all your help.

If kept in milk for 24 hours the genuine yellow sapphire does not change color. If exposed to sunlight the stone gives a yellow hue to the spot where the light is reflected. Also you may buy Gemstones with GIA Certification.
