Best Day and Time to wear Ruby

Ruby should be worn only and only on the ring finger of the working hand or in a pendant and it should be done only on Sunday at 9:15 AM to 12:00 PM and 6:15 PM to 9:00 PM

Suitable Metal for Ruby Ring or Pendant

Gold should be the first choice of metal which should be used for a Ruby ring/pendant or Bracelet. Silver, Panchdhatu / Ashthdhatu can also be used as metal for Ruby stone.

Weight:  Ideally, the minimum weight of Manik which should be worn is calculated according to your body weight. (15 – 18 kgs of body weight denotes 1 carat). So if your body weight is 72 kgs, you must wear a minimum of 4 carats ruby.

How to Wear:  Place the Ruby ring or Pendant in a metal bowl. Add gangaajal, raw cow milk, honey, tulsi leaves and ghee. Recite “Om Hram Hreem Hroum Sah Suryaya Namah” (ॐ ह्राँ ह्रीं ह्रौं स: सूर्याय नम:) OR “Om Ghrini Suryay Namah” (ॐ घृणिः सूर्याय नमः) and immediately remove the ring, clean it with water and wear it on the index finger of working hand.

Re-Charge your Ruby with natural elements: Many of us wear rings and pendants with gemstones but not everyone gets the result out of them or sometimes the undesired. So, we like to share some tips to recharge your gemstones likely to keep on getting the positive results out of the gemstones for longer time.

NOTE: Ruby(represents Sun)-> Add Ganga Jal(or any Holy Water) in a deep glass bowl -> dip the Ruby in it and place in the first hour of sunrise on Sunday for 40 min every month -> Afterwards wear it again as mentioned earlier.

The Ruby you own and are going to wear should have been gone through the Pran Pratishtha before sending to you and you can do it yourself as: including East, North facing Matt placed on an auspicious day and nakshatra for performing pooja. Grams placed on Yellow cloth and Gangaajal washed, Kumkum and Sandal applied gemstone placed on the thaal. After lighting an incense stick in front of the gemstone the mantra “Om Hram Hreem Hroum Sah Suryaya Namah” (ॐ ह्राँ ह्रीं ह्रौं स: सूर्याय नम:) OR “Om Ghrini Suryay Namah” (ॐ घृणिः सूर्याय नमः) is enchanted to create a live energy inside the stone. 

Relax, if you cannot do the Pran pratishtha procedure of the gemstone by yourself, we at MyRatna will do it for you according to the genuine Vedic Scriptures at no cost.

To revitalize the gemstone dip it in salty water for 1 hour in every three months and again wear according to the above mentioned time.

Ruby Quality:-

Mainly three things (3C’s) are considered while deciding quality of astrological Ruby namely Cut Colour and Clarity.

  • Cut:- Cut is normally misunderstood as the shape of the gemstone, but it actually refers to the faces on the gemstone's surface. These cuts allow the light and colour to pass through and shine to the fullest.

According to the latest technological advancement the Science of Symmetry is followed by MyRatna to harness all the natural benefits of the gemstone.

  • Colour:- Ruby comes in range of pinkish red to dark red in colour. The best chosen colour for a perfect astrological Ruby is Pigeon-Blood Red as well as Rose-petal Pink.
  • Clarity:- “Eye Clean” Ruby is considered as a good choice which means the gemstone is completely clear to the naked eye. Natural gemstone can't be free of inclusions which mean crystal & feathers are typically discovered in Ruby. Only man made synthetic stones are flawless.
