Always prefer wearing your Natural Neelam Ring on the middle finger of your right or working hand. While finalizing the design of your blue sapphire ring or any other jewelry, make sure the stone is directly touching your skin. This direct connection channelizes the positive vibes around the life of the wearer and transmits the aura and energies of the planet Saturn.

Before reaching your hands, a gemstone generally passes through different hands. Therefore, it is extremely vital to purify a gemstone prior to wearing it so that it gets rid of all those outer touches. In order to begin the purification process of a Neelam gem, place it in a clean bowl. Now add some auspicious things such as Tulsi or Indian Basil Leaves, raw cow milk, the holy water of river Ganga, and pure honey. 

             Dip the stone or the blue sapphire jewelry into this composition for around 30 minutes. After the said time period, take out the stone, wash it with regular water and wipe it off gently with a soft and clean cloth. This process eradicates all the impurities and negativities from the stone and empowers it to perform at its best.
