A diamond should be bought on a Friday when Venus is in Taurus, Libra, or Pisces. Should be bought in the morning between sunrise and 11:00 A.M. A diamond should be at least 1 rattika (.59 metric carat) in weight. The setting should be silver, white gold, or platinum, and the gem should be flawless. The gemstone should be given to the jeweler on the same day, and the ring should be made and the gemstone set on a Friday under the lunar mansions.

A ring worn in this manner removes the evil effects of an ill-aspected Venus, brings wealth, health, prosperity, removes fear of evil spirits, cures diseases, makes one invincible, removes enmity, and saves one from electric shocks, poisonous insects and animals, and accidental death.

Some aspects of the Medicinal Utility of the Diamond

Diamond is the hardest of all gemstones, and it should never be used orally in the form of a pishthi (paste). Only its bhasma (oxide) is used in Ayurveda. If a diamond particle gets into the stomach it can be fatal. Therefore it is purified very carefully when its oxide is prepared.

Diamond oxide provides prana (life force). It is useful for epilepsy, paralysis, insanity, hernia, premature old age, weakness of mind, among others. It makes the body strong and provides longevity.
