Navaratnas - Nine Gem Astrological BangleNavaratnas

Navaratnas are the crown jewel of Vedic Astrological Jewelry!  Navaratna, meaning nine gem (Nava – “nine” and ratna – “gem”),  contains each of the gemstones for the nine planets.  Diamond, Emerald, Ruby, Yellow Sapphire, Blue Sapphire, Red Coral, Pearl, Hessonite Garnet and Chrysoberyl Cats-Eye – they are all included in a Navaratna.

Generally, in Vedic Astrology, one or two gemstones are recommended for healing purposes and they are worn as a ring or pendant.  You can read about how such gemstones are chosen in the section on Gemstone Recommendations.

Navaratnas bring balance to the wearer as all of the planets are being strengthened.
