    The Ultimate Process

    We are led by Guruji Shrii Arnav .

    Guruji Shrii Arnav - Vedic Guru is also an internationally acclaimed planetary gemmologist. An Accredited Jewelry Professional from the Gemmological Institute of America (GIA), at present he is the chief mentor of http://www.astromandir.com and http://www.gemstoneuniverse.com besides being the Dharmadhikari of the Vara Siddhi Vinayaka Temple .

    He is also the horoscope columnist of Sunday Herald- A leading Indian English daily.

    He is also a member of the Ruling Committee of the esteemed PGA - Planetary Gemmologists Association , Thailand.

    His singular belief and guidance has helped evolve this system which ensures that gemstone therapy works for the individual.

    PLEASE TAKE NOTE:

    We have no third party supplier unlike other Astrology Services/ Astrologers/ Consultants. Our Gemstones are picked up directly from mines, independent suppliers and each lot of gemstone selection is done by a qualified Astro Gemologist . (An Astro-Gemologist is one who is a Certified Astrologer AND a Certified Gemologist !). Every single STAFF MEMBER at Gemstoneuniverse is a certified Gemologist from the GIA or AIGS. Read more on GIA's Workshop and Accreditation Program exclusively at Gemstoneuniverse . And NOT one who is an astrologer who also happens to practice Gemology or a jeweller who just happens to carry gemstones .

    Choosing a Jyotish gemstone is not an easy task. Besides assessment of cut, color, clarity, carat weight and lack of treatment, a certified Astro Gemologist has to ensure that the Jyotish Gemstone is free from any of the flaws listed in sacred texts that lead to bad results. Read one such example on choosing vedic gemstones.

    Every Single Gemstone that makes it to the Gemstoneuniverse website is a true Jyotish Gemstone.

    After the initial process of selection of a Vedic Gem, the Gemstones are certified.

    Independent Lab Certification

    Each Gemstone gets certified independently by a registered, reputable and accredited Gem lab. This ensures complete authenticity of the planetary gemstone and complete transparency for the end customer.

    Provided below are some samples of certificates authenticating the gemstones we provide. The cut, color, clarity, carat weight, country of origin, treatment or lack thereof, dimensions, species, shape, etc. are all mentioned clearly, setting apart each gem.

    We just don’t get a Gem tested for identification such as Natural Blue Sapphire but specifically ask for add-on certification services specifying origin and treatments.

    What you see is what you get.

    Our Sheer Range, reach, numbers that we do and the diverse markets from where we source our gemstones ensure that there is world class certification made available from several labs across the globe. There is no singular lab which we patronize (which may be another reason for antennas being raised!).

    To give you an idea of what value Gemstoneuniverse complete package from start (when you order your gem report) to end (when your customized talisman reaches you) delivers simply consider the cost of certification in this GIA certification fee schedule. Have a look at this chart for the charges for Certification and charges for add on certification such as origin, treatment etc.

    LAB_feeschedule_Ident_1210_

    The complete value of Certification, Appraisal, Insurance, hallmarking when calculated for one single gemstone would range anywhere from $250-$350/-.

    It is our numbers and consistency that gets us volume discounts from the Laboratories which we forward to you as a Gemstoneuniverse advantage and not as freebies.

    Your charge of $125 in shipping includes all this and is just not shipping.

    The bigger Value even than the selection and the certification is professional appraisal .

    Independent Appraisal

    Once the certification is over and the Gemstone is set, there is an independent appraisal conducted for authenticity of goods and the price by a panel appointed by the Government of India and the Jewellers association. This panel has eminent Gemologists and Jewellers on board who put their signature on documentation of the finished piece of Jewellery and Gemstone after examination.

    This ensures that the products are top class and there is NO QUESTION of under-invoicing/over-invoicing. Your product is appraised at the correct price and has value throughout life.

    Provided for your understanding is also a scanned copy of appraisal done by a Govt. Appraiser (a person who functions specifically in this capacity on an official post created by the Government of India, GOI) who gives his assessment along with Jewellers Association.

    Also presented is a sample invoice which carries every single detail of your transaction with Gemstoneuniverse, which will be sent to you. We advocate complete transparency and zero ambiguity. 003 copy 002 copy

    For Domestic Shipments there is no appraisal as per Indian Law. Only your invoice and certification are essential requirements for returns and refunds.

    Unmatched Price

    We offer you natural gemstones with such exceptional clarity and lack of treatmentthat a Gemstone with equivalent clarity level and lack of treatment will be at least priced 6 times at majority of vendors.

    We offer you 1/6th of the cost because we source directly from the mines/mine owners and because of Government Instituted Appraisal Panel. We hate to harp on this but our goal is service to planetary gemology and our vision is to ensure that the efficacy and glory of this sacred science reaches all.

    Leaving all marketing hype we suggest you to go through the resources listed below and we can only say: If you can get a similar gemstone at a lesser price from anywhere we shall buy 100 carats from you .

    Returns, Refunds and Buy Back

    And Finally the Biggest Guarantee

    Lifetime Buy Back Facility

    If a gemstone that you buy is original, gem quality and authentic it will have value throughout your lifetime. In some cases, value will also increase manifold. This is generally the case for mostly all our gems for they are fine, natural and untreated.

    For example, natural yellow sapphire, whole lots that we were procuring for $270 per carat in the year 2004 is now available at a minimum price point of $700 per carat, provided one buys a minimum quantity of 250 carats or more.

    More Detailed story on Rubies – Soon to be Stuff of Legends & a New royal Lot

    You will understand that nature's capacity to replenish fine gems is also limited; hence the steep appreciation in value. Each single gemstone from Gemstoneuniverse is so unique, certified and original that we offer you a lifetime buyback facility of the following gemstone categories:

    75% Lifetime Buy Back

    Precious Gemstones only

    On all Rubies, Yellow Sapphires, Blue Sapphires, Emeralds, White Sapphires and Diamonds you have a lifetime value of 75% of your gemstone cost, minus the labour, appraisal, insurance and shipping cost.

    This is flat 75% return. Please note if the gemstone is returned, it will have minor surface scratches and blemishes etc. which come with normal use. This gemstone will again go to the cutting and polishing centre. This incurs cutting and polishing costs and some kind of mineral wastage during a recut hence 75%.

    Note: As per sacred tenets of Gemology a single consecrated gem can be used by a loved one or a blood relative. Once a Gem is sold and returned it is never listed back at Gemstoneuniverse online inventory of Jyotish Gemstones.

    Each single product that we ship out is digitally catalogued. You can browse real time figures and statistics of more than a 1000 finished pieces on the Gemstoneuniverse blog. A returned gemstone will make it back to Gemstoneuniverse buying division to be sold for Jewellery or investment but it will NOT make it again to the Gemstoneuniverse online inventory.

    Note: As of 5th December 2011, our return rate is less than .5%. Individuals who have implemented the Gem therapy as per the process listed above and the guidelines given by Guruji Shrii Arnav have enjoyed the benefits and appreciated their gemstones. In majority of the refund cases we have seen that the individual has bought the gemstone but has not sought prior Vedic Recommendation from us which actually should be the first step towards choosing a Vedic Gemstone.

    50% Lifetime Buy Back

    Semi Precious Gemstones

    On all semi precious gemstones like Hessonite, Cat's Eye, Garnet, Tourmaline, Heliodor, Peridot, Topaz, Blue Sheen Moonstone, Iolite, Amethyst, Opals, Lapis Lazuli you have a lifetime value of 50% of your gemstone cost, minus the labour, appraisal, insurance and shipping cost.

    This is flat 50% return. Please note if the gemstone is returned it will have minor surface scratches and blemishes etc. which come with normal use. This gemstone will again go to the cutting and polishing centre. This incurs cutting and polishing costs and some kind of mineral wastage during a recut hence 50%.

    Organic Gemstones

    There is no buy back on Organic Gemstones like Natural Pearls and Red Corals simply because these gemstones are not hard as precious gemstones and they waste over a period of time.

    Please note carefully:

    The buyback exists throughout your lifetime, provided

    1. The original invoice, certificate, Government appraisal documents are intact with you. Please preserve these documents. Without these documents, we will not be able to honour any case for refund or buyback. Categorization in right inventory is also rendered impossible. These documents have to be submitted to various legal authorities including the Reserve Bank of India so that the process is fast and without any hitches.
    2. The Gemstone has not been removed from its original setting and is not damaged or having a crack.
    3. You have a professional appraisal for a finished piece. If there is an issue with the gemstone or the metal it will not get certified and appraised in the first place.

    Till the above two conditions are met your mind is at peace and the buyback ensured.

    90% Lifetime Buy back
