Step 1
Please check from a competent astrologer whether or not Blue Sapphire suits you. Wearing a gemstone that does not suit you as per your astrological chart is not recommended. Gemstones bring changes in your natural energy fields and wearing a non suitable gemstone can be harmful. Only upon verification of the above, move to Step 2.

Step 2
Buy a Blue Sapphire on a Saturday during the Shukla Paksha (the ascending moon cycle). Blue Sapphire may also be purchased when the nakshatra (constellation) is Shravana, Kshatbhika, Purva Bhadrapada, Uttarakshad, Chitra, Svati or Vishakha.

Step 3
The ring should be set in Panchdhatu (Metal with five parts: 1 part gold, 2 parts silver, 3 parts lead, 4 parts iron, and 1 part copper) and the stone mounted in open backed ring such that it can touch the finger that you wear on. The weight of the Blue Sapphire should be not be less than 1.5 rattikas. (1 Rattika = 0.9 carats). A 5 rattika or 7 rattika blue sapphire is better. A 5 carat Blue Sapphire is quite auspicious.

Step 4
Upon receiving the ring, decide on the day to wear it keeping in mind the rules given in Step 2. Best time to wear it in is the evening of Saturday of the said nakshatras.

Step 5
Sit facing West on a black asana. Keep the ring immersed in raw cow’s milk. Then wash it with Ganga – water or water kept in a copper pot overnight. After it has been washed, keep the ring on a black cloth on which a Saturn Yantra (numerical yantra may be used) is drawn with red sandalwood paste, rice paste or roli.

Step 6
Offer flowers, incense to the yantra and the Blue Sapphire and chant the following mantra 108 times:

Aum Sham Shanaishcharaye Namah Aum or "Om Namo Bhagwate Vasudevaya"

Step 7
Wear the ring.
