    • 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 that is picked up is done by a qualified Astro Gemologist . (One who is a Certified Astrologer and a Certified Gemologist ) and not one who is an astrologer who also happens to practice Gemology .
    • These qualified personnel ensure that not only each Gemstone excels on the 4C's of cut, color, clarity and carat weight but more importantly that the Gemstone is fully natural, untreated, unheated and has enough clarity levels and lack of inclusions to be classified as a top quality Jyotish Gemstone .
    • Independent Lab Certification - Each Gemstone gets certified independently by a registered and accredited Gem lab . This ensures complete authenticity of the planetary gemstone and complete transparency.
    • Independent Appraisal - Once the certification is over and the Gemstone is set, there is an independent appraisal for authenticity of goods and the price by a panel appointed by the Government of India and the Jewellers association . This ensures that the products are top class and there is NO QUESTION of under-invoicing/over-invoicing. Your product is appraised of the correct price .
    • We offer you natural gemstones with such exceptional clarity and lack of treatment that a Gemstone with equivalent clarity level and lack of treatment will be minimally priced 6 times at majority of websites. We offer you 1/6th of the cost because we source directly from the mines/mine owners and because of Government Instituted Appraisal Panel . You will find our presence at each of the major Gemstone and Jewelry shows all over the world every year.
    • Gold used for setting of the Gemstones is certified 22 KDM Gold . There is a hallmark for 22 KDM on all www.gemstoneuniverse.com gold rings, pendants and talismans.
    • Silver used in setting of gemstones is sterling silver - 92.5 grade , the purest form for ornamental silver. This is also hallmarked.
    • Your Gemstones will be appraised at a minimum of 3 levels of Government of India authorities plus an independent lab certification before being dispatched to you.
    • Each Gemstone after going through the stringent process of Selection, Appraisal and Certification is finally insured and all duties are paid to ensure that your precious Planetary Gemstone reaches you in mint condition.* Each package after certification is wax sealed to ensure that no one else except you can open the package.

    * Special Duty Structure exists for UK, New Zealand and UAE. This is a minor duty and is usually lower than 5% of the total package value.
