And if you are not born in April, or you are not of the planet Venus, or even if you are of both, but you desire benefits different from what diamonds provide, then DO NOT buy a diamond, you may need another gemstone, so get in touch with an expert astrologer to know what stone is best for you.
How to wear diamonds
It is very easy to overlook the astrological side of an object when it is as ubiquitous as the diamond, but you have to know that wearing a diamond as an ornament and wearing it as an astrological gemstone are two different things. As an astrological gemstone it must be energised by an expert astrologer. This exercise will maximise its effect.
The gemstone must be spotless as an astrological gemstone. Any spots on it would render it useless for the purpose that you intended. Furthermore, the best day to wear the diamond gemstone is early morning on Friday.
You can embed the gemstone in a gold or silver ring or pendant, and if you are wearing it as a ring, then your last or middle finger is the best position.
As earlier said, the gemstone has to be energised by an expert astrologer before wearing. He may instruct you to dip the gemstone in fresh milk, honey and pure water for 20 to 30 min, and to burn incense sticks and seek the blessing of Shukra Deva. You will also get a mantra to chant. All this will help the effectiveness of the diamond when you finally wear it.
