How to wear Opal for Venus

Wearing an opal gemstone can bring a variety of benefits, particularly related to creativity, emotional balance, and spiritual insights. Opals are associated with the planet Venus in Vedic astrology and are believed to bring prosperity, love, and beauty into one's life. Here’s how to properly wear an opal gemstone to maximize its benefits:

Choosing the Right Opal

  1. Quality: Ensure that the opal is natural and of high quality. The stone should display vibrant play-of-color, which is the characteristic rainbow-like appearance unique to opals.

Setting the Opal in Jewelry

  1. Metal: The opal should ideally be set in silver, platinum, white gold, or Panch Dhatu.
  2. Design: Ensure the gemstone is open from the back so it touches the skin, allowing direct contact and maximizing its astrological benefits.

When and How to Wear the Opal Ring

  1. Day and Time: The best day to wear an opal ring is on a Friday, as it is associated with Venus. Wear it during the early morning hours, preferably between 5 AM and 7 AM.
  2. Finger: Wear the ring on the ring finger of your right hand. In some traditions, the little finger is also considered suitable.
  3. Preparation:
    • Cleansing: Cleanse the ring by soaking it in a mixture of holy water, milk, and honey. Rinse with clean water afterward.
    • Energizing: Sit in a quiet place, light a candle or incense stick, and recite the Venus mantra to energize the stone. The mantra is:
      “Om Shukraya Namah”
      Chant this mantra 108 times to activate the opal's energies.

Wearing the Ring

  1. Procedure: After energizing, wear the ring on the designated finger. Ensure that the gemstone touches your skin.

Maintenance of the Opal Ring

  1. Cleaning: Clean the opal ring regularly with mild soap and water. Avoid harsh chemicals as opals are delicate and can be damaged easily.
  2. Re-energizing: Periodically re-energize the gemstone by repeating the mantra on a Friday.


  1. Compatibility: Consult with an astrologer before wearing an opal ring, as it may not suit everyone and could have adverse effects if not compatible with your birth chart.
  2. Observations: Observe any changes in your life after wearing the ring. If you experience any negative effects, remove the ring and consult your astrologer.

Additional Tips

  • Avoid Water Exposure: While opals contain water, they are sensitive to changes in moisture. Avoid prolonged exposure to water to prevent damage.
  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Keep the gemstone away from harsh chemicals, lotions, and perfumes, as they can damage the stone.
  • Storage: Store the opal ring separately from other jewelry to avoid scratches and damage.
