"Pearl is the gem stone ruled by Moon. It is a suitable and gainful gem stone for those in whose nativities Moon rules an auspicious house or when as ruler of an auspicious house is afflicted or not well placed in the birth charts.


  • The Pearl to be worn should be of 2, 4, 6 or 11 carats.

  • It should be purchased and set in a silver ring on Monday on Monday or Thursday (never Saturday)

  • and after observing the other rituals mentioned earlier and reciting the following Mantra 108 times,

  • the ring should be worn on a Monday morning in the bright half of the lunar month.

  • "Aum som somaya namah"

  • Those who cannot afford to buy a Pearl can wear Moon-stone, white Sapphire is also advised as a substitute by some authorities; but it is not a cheap stone,

    The ring should be worn in the ring finger of the right hand.

But be careful.

The Pearl or its substitutes should never be worn with Diamond, Emerald, Blue Sapphire and Cat's Eye and their substitutes."

the Moon has no enemies.

unless specific conditions in the nativity would negate the combinations, generally OK to wear pearl *as a pendant* so long as any other ratna are being worn as finger-rings.

  • For all remedial gemstones, be sure to cleanse the stone energetically with extreme attention to proper mantra.

  • Flawless gems are expensive and hard to find. Use only a trusted Vedic-trained gemologist. It might be easiest to start with single gem and combine them as your finances allow.
