about Jyotish Vedic Gemstones | The Planetary Gems International Co.
Q: - I definitely would like to
use my astrological, Jyotish
Vedic Gems, but I don't know which ones are right for me.
As per the readings through your site, I assume that
they are gems chosen based upon a person's zodiacal sign or something
like that. How can I know the right Planetary Gems for me?
A: - Planetary Jyotish Gemstones are not
chosen on the basis of an individual's zodiacal sign (commercial
"birthstones" system). A
much deeper and scientific knowledge provides the fundamentals for the use of Planetary
Jyotish Gems for individuals. This knowledge is called Vedic Astrology
and to know which of the nine Planetary Jyotish Gems
you need, we have to calculate your astrological, sideral birth-chart. Knowing your Jyotish gems is one of the services
that we provide. We both, Rudy and I, after many years of studying Vedic astrology, are
able to interpret your Jyotish chart and recommend the right gemstones to wear. Many of
you already know their Jyotish gems from a previous Vedic consultation. You are
always welcome to
call us to select your prescribed Planetary Jyotish Gems.
is the difference between astrological Jyotish Gems and the gems that are sold in jewelry
stores? Are not they the same?
they are not the same. Planetary Jyotish Gemstones
have to be unheated, untreated and undyed in any way. Nowadays, 98% of the traditional market gemstones are subjected to treatments,
which include color enhancing by heat, radiations
or diffusion, dyeing and fracture filling for cosmetic
improvement. Untreated gemstone are rarer and of higher quality than
the gemstones you will find
average, local jewelry store.
If these gemstones are of higher quality, do I have to pay a premium
for such gems?
A: - You have come to the right
place for this answer. No, not here. Our prices are strictly wholesale. In
addition to provide astrological, untreated, natural gemstones to
people, our other clientele consists of some jewelry stores and
dealers. Some internet sites selling gemstones also purchase from
us. We travel directly, yearly, to Sri Lanka for untreated
sapphires, cat's eyes, hessonites, spinels, to Thailand for rubies,
to Colombia for emeralds, to Torre del Greco (Italy) for coral, to
mainland China for tissue nucleated pearls. We have established the best, overseas
contacts in terms of fine quality combined with best prices. And we
are proud of this! To go more in depth about valuing a gemstones, see
the quality and value of gemstones
page and how combinations
of the 4 C's ( COLOR, CLARITY, CUT, and CARAT weight ) determine the
We offer the best quality for
your money. Guaranteed 100%.
Q: - Why prices can vary so
much? I have found some similar gems at a considerably higher or lower prices. Why is
A: - The price of a gemstone of
similar variety can vary considerably for a number of reasons.
First, we should compares apples to apples. We have to compares two
stones of the same variety, same color hue and carat weight range. Treatments
or no treatments as well. When the right comparison is there, then,
the main factors of a substantial price
difference might be the following (not necessarily in this order):
Overheads of sellers.
If a seller has huge overheads (many employees,
huge rental space, etc.) prices
will be much higher. At that point, you do not
pay anymore the real value of the stone, but you pay him to stay in
the stone was bought (*at origin, or
**from a dealer, who bough them at origin
and imported, or ***from
a dealer, who bought them from another
dealer, after being imported, **** from a
averagely priced retailer, ***** from a very expensive retailer). The more a
stone changes hands, the higher the price. We
have many gemstones web sites, jewelry stores, wholesale dealers as
our customers. We buy our stones at the origin, then we import
them here in USA, and we sell to anyone for the same price.
3- How the stone was bought. Usually if
we buy in parcels,, the average cost per
stone is lower, so we can pass the savings
and sell them even at lower prices.
Knowing the exact value/price of a gemstone is
also of fundamental importance.
4- From who you
bought the stone. Even at origin, some cutters/dealers are known to
have higher price than others
(for the same quality). And so, along the passing hands chain.
5- When you
bought the stone. Certain time of the year, stones at origin are
less plentiful (rainy or winter season),
so expect to pay more.
Or when availability is scarce (again because of season or because
no finds in the ground).
6- Buyer beware that 99% of
sellers hide behind their "you get what you pay for" lie. A smart
and alert buyer, even acknowledging that it is true, knows
that some, fewer business people are more ethical than others in
choosing, representing and selling their products. Do not get fool
by "if it is more expensive, it must be of higher quality". Get more
knowledge and more prices of what you intend to buy.
