Do I Get What I see?

At Gemstoneuniverse we understand that you are buying a precious, rare and a durable Gemstone and it is an important, valuable and a sacred purchase for you.

We also understand that for majority of our patrons it maybe a once in a lifetime purchase – a significant purchase to say the least! We understand the importance and value of that. We want this purchase and experience to be a memorable and rewarding one for you; and our association with you – a matter of pride for us! 

As ardent gem lovers, it would be tremendously gratifying, if our expertise in gem selection and understanding of color delights you with a beautiful gem. And as dedicated planetary gemmologists and believers in planetary gem therapy, we become a positive contributor in your karmic life map.  

At the core of Gemstoneuniverse philosophy is to ensure a 100% error free Gem therapy and delight our patrons.

Keeping that in mind for close to a decade we have maintained the Gemstoneuniverse Blog wherein we feature some of the finished pieces of rings/ pendants being shipped out real time with Gem Notes so that patrons can see how a Gemstone looks in the loose state, after being set in gold/ silver and whether the clarity characteristics such as inclusions and correct colour are communicated accurately or not.

Every Single write-up on the, The Gemstoneuniverse Blog has Gem Notes, Pictures and Videos of around 2000+ pieces of fine Gemstones shipped out and is a great platform to research, view, evaluate and compare accuracy. In fact the Gemstoneuniverse Blog is a unique independent review system and it was started for that unique purpose before the world became more digitally social.

Jyotish Gemstones by default are Gemstones of exceptional clarity and colour and are at the apex of the Gemstone Pyramid. As seasoned professionals even though we are fully aware that no amount of dedication, technology, research, hard work can capture the true magic, drama, colour and life of a Gemstone digitally we try our best to communicate cut, colour, clarity and carat weight to a high degree of accuracy to the level that has delighted our patrons over decades.

Under promise and over deliver is one of core philosophies and that you can verify from the Blog and our patron testimonies.

When your Gemstone reaches you, we want you to feel that the Gemstone looks much better than it does on the Gemstoneuniverse website.

For the Technically Oriented

Intent: At Gemstoneuniverse It is our endeavour to communicate colour and clarity characteristics as accurately as possible to the best of our professional abilities. We aim to communicate the most intricate details of Gemstone as a Gemologist or a seasoned insider of a Gem Trade would appreciate. Special emphasis is made to communicate inclusions and colour correctly.

Give Preference to Video over Photos: We highly recommend that before you make your purchasing decision you view video of your short listed favourite gemstones several times.

Pay Attention to Video Resolution and Quality: Gemstoneuniverse Videos are shot in high resolution using highly sophisticated equipment, cameras and lenses. View the videos in 1080P HD or 720P HD. On slower internet connections Youtube by default plays 240P/ 360 P Quality.

Macro photography: The photos and Videos of the Gemstones are taken using macro photography that gives you a 30X (30 times) the actual size magnification of a Gemstone. The same magnification a professional gemologist would obtain by using a 30X Loupe. The objective for this is to give you the most accurate details of the cut, colour and clarity of a Gemstone.

Most of the inclusions that you see at this magnification are barely visible/ invisible to the naked eye. Full 3 D circular view and custom white balance setting- as observed in normal daylight

Full Disclosure: Notice that in all videos we make the Gemstones/ Ring/ Pendant/ Talisman move a full 360 degrees so that you can assess Gem Quality from the nearest point to the farthest point without any flash lights or optical effects.

At Gemstoneuniverse we are factual and exact. Jyotish Gemstones are at the apex of the Gemstone Pyramid-They don’t require blinking torch/LED lights to look beautiful.
