With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it is the time to buy a long-lasting gift to your loved one. The ideal gifts are precious stones and metals. While platinum is the most preferred metal these days, it is followed by gold and silver. These metals could be presented as a necklace, earring, nose ring or wrist chain.
When such metal jewellery is studded with a gem, the gift becomes even more special. Among the precious stones, diamond has been the perennial favourite among Valentines. No other gem can match the diamond’s sparkle, toughness or beauty. Moreover, diamond is related to Venus, the goddess of beauty in Greek mythology and to the Planet Venus, which also represents beauty according to Indian astrology.
Since ancient times, diamond has been a symbol of beauty and wearing it is believed to fulfil dreams related to love. In fact, astrology says diamond can help you get married fast and maintain a love affair. The gem is believed to enhance your internal as well as external beauty. Astrologers also claim that a person who presents a diamond to his or lover would never part ways the loved one.
For Valentine’s Day, diamonds weighing 3 to 20 cents (One cent equals 2 mg) could be presented. They can be in the form of a nose ring, necklace or finger ring. It is pointed out that the most ideal gift on the day is diamond-studded platinum jewellery.
People born under the stars Pooram, Pooradam and Bharani as well as those having their lucky number as ‘6’ and born on the sixth, 15th or 24th of the month would benefit by wearing a diamond.
Lovers who cannot afford diamond can choose Zircon Real, a sub-gem of diamond. Zircon Real or Natural Zircon would give you the same advantages as diamond.
Another favourite stone of people in love is aquamarine. The birthstone of people born during March, aquamarine brings many benefits to them. Wearing the stone on Wednesdays is particularly effective, as per astrology. The weight of aquamarine should be between 2 and 5 carats and it could be worn in the form of a ring on the middle or ring finger. People having ‘5’ as their lucky number and born on the fifth, 14th or 23rd of any month also can wear aquamarine. If your star is Revathy, Ayilyam or Thrikketta this gem will increase the intensity of love.
Yet another gem that could make a good present on Valentine’s Day is pearl. It signifies simplicity and wearing it as a necklace or ring would give peace of mind to those who lost it in love. Pearl could also be worn to get a good sleep and inspire thoughts of love. Moreover, if your lucky number is ‘2’ and birthday falls on the days 2, 11, 20 or 29 of any month, wearing pearl will bring immense benefits. Love would flourish also if your star signs are Rohini, Atham or Thiruvonam and you adorn yourself with pearl.
However, diamond, zircon, aquamarine or pearl should be worn only if your mind is free of malice. According to astrology, these gems would certainly strengthen true love, despite the age of the wearers.
