What are Navaratnas?
Navaratna is a Sanskrit compound word, which means, Nine (Nava) Gems (Ratna(s)). The Navartana basically indicates the nine planets of our solar system that governs each of the gems - which are -
- Ruby (or Maanikyam, Manik) indicates the Sun.
- Pearl (or Muktaphalam, Moti) indicates the Moon.
- Emerald (or Marathakam, Panna) indicates Mercury.
- Red Coral (or Vidrumam, Moonga) indicates Mars.
- Yellow Sapphire (or Pukhraj) indicates Jupiter.
- Diamond (or Vajram, Heera) indicates Venus.
- Blue Sapphire (or Nilam, Neelam) indicates Saturn.
- Hessonite (or Gomed) indicates Rahu, the ascending lunar position in astrology.
- Cat’s Eye (or Vaiduryam, Vaidurya, Lehsuniya) indicates Ketu, the descending lunar position.
Even though the origins of this precious combination of nine gems is unknown, its popularity and beauty go beyond the borders of India, covering almost all Asian countries, irrespective of their culture or religion.
The benefits of wearing Navaratna jewellery?
Based on Astrology, it is believed that a person’s life on Earth is affected by the nine planets (or the Navagrahas) in our solar system, including the Sun and the Moon. Hence, wearing navaratna jewellery is said to alter the life of the wearer for good, physically and mentally.
Let’s take a look at the benefits of wearing the navaratnas and their special properties.
One of the most important gemstones in the navaratna, the Ruby is placed towards the centre, called the Bhramasthana. It represents the Sun and is considered as an answer to positive energy, longevity, power, success and spirituality. Hence, it is also known as the ‘King of jewels’. It is associated with the star sign Leo.
The most precious of all gemstones, the diamond is worn to celebrate Venus, the feminine planet. Diamond is believed to bring the wearer riches, power and marital bliss. The star sign associated with the diamond is Taurus and Libra.
Peace, emotional stability, and creativity are to prevail where the moon is worshipped. Pearl is the ruler of the star sign Cancer. It is also recommended for those in the creative field.

The Hessonite is said to help the wearer from adversities, addictions, drug and alcohol abuse and gambling. It can control and concentrate the power of Rahu in attracting positive energy, fame, legal and political success, to the wearer. Also, the ill-effects associated with Rahu including, excessive worldly desires and marital discord can be diverted away by wearing the Hessonite.
- Blue Sapphire
The Blue Sapphire is worn by those who want to win over Saturn or ‘Shani’, one of the mightiest and fearful of all planets. Capricorn and Aquarius are the star signs associated with the Blue Sapphire. This gemstone is good for curing depression and warding off evil eyes as it is the most protective of all the stones.
