Gemstone Universe, an exquisite retail galleria for authentic gemstones and planetary gemology has opened its first outlet in India in Bangalore. Spread across nearly 2000 sft of showroom space, the first of its kind outlet of Gemstone Universe is located at #78, Ground Floor, Al Azeez Mansion, Brigade Road.
A brainchild ofVedic guru and founderofastromandir.com, Guruji Shrii Arnav, Gemstone Universe houses authentic precious and semi-precious gems set in gold and silver jewellery, exclusive astrology and gemology consultations by Planetary Gemology Association (PGA) certified consultants, besides spiritual artifacts and trendy jewellery.
"Our spiritual scriptures prescribe seven potent remedial measures to be carried out for all human problems- yantra, tantra, mantra, japa, yagna, dhyana & ratna. The 'ratna' or 'gemstone', is perhaps the most convenient, and potent of them all," explains Guruji Shrii Arnav, while inaugurating the sure.
The outlet will be run by Shailendra Aragula and Shobhana Shailendra, both certified consultants and members of Planetary Gemology Association (PGA).
"Hitherto, gemstone consultancy has been carried out in small kiosk type outlets. There is no one stop shop for providing authentic and even certified gems and gem studded jewellery. At Gemstone Universe, we assure our customers a great ambience coupled with discreet astrology and gemology consultancy," apprises Shailendra Aragula, Managing Director, Gemstone Universe.
"What's more, we even offer 75% buy back for gems bought at Gemstone Universe, if a customer wants to upgrade or exchange his gemstone anytime later," adds an emphatic Shailendra.
Aiming to create awareness regarding the power of gemstones to heal and to improve the quality of life of the wearer, Gemstone Universe makes sure every stone is handpicked. "Each stone is sourced directly from the miners. The four Cs of cut, clarity, colour and carat, and the lattice structure of a stone form the basis of our selection. A stone is sold only if it meets the quality criteria and standards that have been set to qualify it as an astrologically-potent gemstone," apprises Shobhana Shailendra, Director, Gemstone Universe. At Gemstone Universe, one can shop from Rs 500 to upwards of Rs. 2.5 lakhs.
After Bangalore, Gemstone Universe plans to launch many more franchised outlets throughout the country within the next one year in cities like Hyderabad, Chennai & Mumbai. The company also has plans to open outlets in other countries.
Shobhana Shailendra is a PGA trained gemologist and a pranic healet who spearheads the franchised outlet of Gemstone Universe at Brigade Road. A qualified educationist for the past several years, Shobhana has a natural flair for providing consultation. She has done her B.Ed, with an MA in English, a post-graduate in Botany and a Diploma in Counseling.
Shobhana has a constant urge to upgrade her skills and is currently pursuing Praveena in Astrology.
As a partner of Gemstone Universe, she hopes to help mitigate people's problems by improving the quality of their life through planetary gemology.
Shailendra Aragula is the dynamic Managing Director of the first franchise of Gemstone Universe in India. A certified planetary gemologist and a member of the International Planetary Gemology Association, Thailand, Shailendra follows closely in the footsteps of his mentor, Guruji Shrii Arnav.
