Astrological Blue Sapphire Effects

download (20)As indicated by Medic Astrology, the gemstone represents the planet Saturn. It is a very compelling Gemstone. It was said that the Gemstone gives great things to the wearer and as well make him/her progress in life. Is this true? In the event that it is yes, so what’s the purpose for this?

Blue sapphire is a Gemstone of Saturn or Shani. As indicated by Medic Astrology, Saturn relates with hard-working and devoted people. It isn’t right to say Saturn gives you success without hard work. In fact, people who are not hard-working can’t get the great power of these gemstones; This Gemstone gives great power to only hard-working people. On the off-chance that you are not afraid of hard work, you can wear these gemstones to get the endowments of Shani. Only hard-working people get the great power of Blue Sapphire on this planet.

It was also said that it gives supremacy to the wearer immediately. In my own point of view, it isn’t right; the reason is that Saturn is the slowest planet in Zodiac. It takes no less than years to finish

How Can You Tell Real Pearls From Fake Pearls?

download (17)The question is often asked: “How can I tell if the pearls I am buying are real or fake?” The honest answer to that is: “It is difficult but there are some guidelines you can follow that will help you make the distinction.” In this article I am calling a “real” pearl any pearl that is made by an oyster. Cultured pearls are made by farmed oysters that have had a piece of ‘foreign’ material inserted into them by the oyster farmers. This is called “seeding”. The ‘foreign’ material irritates the oyster and causes it to secrete a nacreous substance that coats the irritating particle and forms a pearl. In nature, this process happens naturally, but naturally-occurring pearls are rare and very expensive.

On the simplest level, the name of a type of pearl will tell you more about it. Mikimoto pearls, for example, are high quality cultured pearls.

Majorica is the brand name of imitation pearls that have been made by Majorica, S.A. (a Spanish registered company) on the Spanish island of Majorca in the Mediterranean since 1890. Majorica pearls have a closer resemblance

7 Types Of Gemstone Ring Setting Styles

download (16)Gemstone rings are elegant looking and make great wedding or engagement rings. They come in different setting styles; therefore, you have many options to choose from. The different setting styles of gemstone rings include:

Prong setting

It’s the most common and classic ring setting. A prong is simply a little metal claw that grips the gemstone tightly thus holding it in place. Prongs can be pointed, flat, V-shaped or rounded. Most of the rings with this setting feature four or six prongs. The cool thing with this setting is that there is little presence of the metal; therefore, plenty of gemstone is visible. This allows more light to pass through the gemstone thus making it more brilliant.

Three stone ring setting

The three stone ring setting is common with gemstone rings. The setting represents the couple’s past, present, and future. To make the setting interesting, in most of the cases, the two smaller stones are of a different gem while the larger center stone is that of your choice. If you don’t want to attract a lot of attention to your ring, use identical gems.
