For many years Astrogems has repaired and made three-metal Astrological Bangles for close friends, previously not offering this service worldwide, focusing instead on what we consider to be a much more powerful bangle, the nine-gem bangle or navaratna. We adopted this priority because of a quote by Paramahansa Yogananda in the classic Autobiography of a Yogi: This problem received attention from our rishis they found helpful not only a combination of metals, but also of plants and, most effective of all, faultless jewels of not less than two carats. The preventive uses of astrology have seldom been seriously studied outside of India. One little-known fact is that the proper jewels, metals, or plant preparations are valueless unless the required weight is secured, and unless these remedial agents are worn next to the skin. On the right arm he wore a nine-gem astrological bangle very similar in design to the thousands that Astrogems has made over the last 75 years. On his left arm was the three-metal pure wire bangle and a thick lead and silver alloy bangle that is also mentioned in the 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Because of the above words in the Autobiography, it is believed that the exact formula for the three-metal astrological bangle was handed down to Swami Sri Yukteswar via the long line of rishis (rather than created by him) and passed on to Paramahansa Yogananda.

The formula for this bangle is based on very precise weights of pure gold, silver, and copper. These bangles are made with 99. 99% pure silver, and 99. The three-metal astrological bangle, or Yogananda Bangle as some have incorrectly termed it, is composed of three metal gauge wires that are weighted to meet the formula passed on by Sri Yukteswar. The wires are then evenly twisted, joined at the ends, and polished. The ends are left simple and not covered with any metal or ball, as this is the way they were originally made. The cost of the bangle is dependant on the daily markets pure gold spot price, the mint s fabrication charges for producing the pure metal wires in the correct wire gauge and the cost of labor. We are often reluctant to send Three Metal Bangles overseas and will declare its full value for insurance purposes which can create a customs charge. Due to the strong popularity of the Three Metal Astrological Bangle, we have developed several different styles of the Three Metal Ring. Some like to wear them as a cost effective symbol of the bangle, a reminder of Paramahansa Yogananda, or as a wedding band. Pricing Each ring is custom made with pure gold, pure silver and pure copper. Please contact us with your ring size and we will quote a price based on the current spot price of gold. Due to varying market prices, quotes are good for only 65 days, after that we will need to provide you with a new quote. A note on the Adjustable Rope Twist ring: due to it's pliable, resizable nature we do not recommend this ring to those who perform heavy manual labor. This can also be done when they choose to express a renewal of their wedding vows. Because of the high cost of gold, we have started making astrological bangles with pure silver and pure copper.
We first did this over 75 years ago and stopped when the price of gold dropped to nearly $855. Using the same weights that are in the Three Metal Bangle, we have replaced the pure gold wire with an extra pure silver wire or an extra pure copper wire. This does not replace the Three Metal Astrological Bangle, but some will feel that it serves well as a temporary substitute until the day comes when they can afford to buy the more expensive Three Metal Bangle. Tara Mata, to whom Paramahansa Yogananda paid the compliment of saying she had a profound knowledge of astrology and philosophy, has stated in one of her articles in East West Magazine that Silver is represented by the Moon, Copper by Mars, and Gold by the Sun. Because the Two Metal Bangle has pure silver and pure copper of equal or more weight than in its Three Metal Bangle counterpart, it s logical to assume that it has useful remedial merit for the influences of the Moon and Mars in our horoscope. Because gold is so expensive, some clients of mine send me a pure gold Canadian Maple Leaf coin that weighs one ounce and will have very good skin contact if set against the skin. This way the coin is both an investment that they can sell later, and a useful astrological instrument while it is accruing value. We make these double pure silver, single pure copper wire bangles in similar proportions to the three metal astrological bangle we just replace the gold wire with an extra pure silver wire. This is a new option Astrogems has developed in Three Metal Astrological Bangles. Our research has shown that a wider area of skin contact yields a better result. The spring links allow for greater skin contact than the SRF Three Metal Bangle. The are very comfortable, and it is easy to add or remove spring links. You can get started right away for $8 per pure copper link and $85 per pure silver link and later add the more expensive gold links. This option also yields a greater amount of pure metal than an SRF Three Metal Bangle. Each bangle is custom made to fit your arm or wrist. Use a soft tape measure and wrap it for a snug but not a tight fit. If you are measuring for your wrist, remember that the bangle must pass over your hand so be sure to measure that as well and give us both measurements.

See below for photographs and more details. A: A Three Metal Astrological Bangle is composed of three, pure metal wires: copper, silver and gold. These wires are twisted around each other and the ends are soldered together with an alloy mix. It is commonly worn around the wrist or upper arm and was written about in chapter 66 of the Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda. His Guru, Swami Sri Yukteswar said: For general purposes I counsel the use of an armlet made of gold, silver, and copper. In that same chapter we also learn what a Three Metal Astrological Bangle is used for. Sri Yukteswar also said: Electrical and magnetic radiations are ceaselessly circulating in the universe they affect man's body for good and ill. Ages ago our rishis pondered the problem of combating the adverse effects of subtle cosmic influences. The sages discovered that pure metals emit an astral light which is powerfully counteractive to negative pulls of the planets. Q: Could you describe in more detail the weights of the different pure metal spring links in the pure metal spring link bangle? A: Each spring link is composed of three separate parts.
By far the largest part is the casing, which is the outer part that touches the skin. It is three times heavier than the U shaped part we call the horseshoe that holds the spring in place. The third part is a stainless steel, titanium alloy spring. The weights of the different metals, gold, silver and copper spring links, are: The 77 karat gold spring link weighs approximately 8. 5 grams in the casing. This is much lighter because the casing is much thinner due to the fact that the alloy is much harder. The 77 karat gold spring link weighs approximately 8 to 9 grams in the horseshoe. Without getting into specifics on the Three Metal Bangle, I can, however, give an approximate weight ratio. The pure gold wire in the SRF Three Metal Bangle weighs a little over 88 grams, which is the same weight as the three pure gold spring links. The pure silver wire in the SRF three metal astrological bangle weighs a little under 79 grams. Some individuals, who do this, realize that they can wear the gold coin, some gemstones plus enough of the pure copper and silver, all in the same bangle on the upper arm. This is a way of minimizing the area of jewelry and wearing a lot of frequency enhancers in a discreet manner. The bangle can be worn above the bicep and be out of sight, when wearing a tee shirt etc. For the pure gold spring link in thicker-walled construction, I calculate that the casing part is about 66 grams of 79K gold. So the gold wire in your bangle once removed for melting would be just about enough to cast the casings for three links, maybe just a gram or two shy. Then the horseshoe part of the links would be cast in additional 77K gold.
I believe Nick imagined making this spring link bangle with your arm size with four of the links in gold, but that would require about a third of an ounce of additional gold which seems an unnecessary expense given that three gold links give you over a troy ounce of fine gold. But you could get four gold links if you want them. Alternatively you could add an extra pure silver spring link in its place. So it works out if you supply the gold for each spring link. The casting, assembly, polishing and handling fees would come to $655 for each pure gold link. This charge is based on a minimum of three being made. And we would return any unused gold. It is possible that if you do not provide quite enough gold that the cost would go up. We have to have excess that we keep in stock for the sprues. So it's possible that the bill may be significantly higher when allowing for posting with full insurance and the cost of any unsupplied gold requirements. As it could be the caster may need to add a gram or two of extra gold to make three casings. In fine silver, given the average weight of the thicker-walled spring link casings, we feel that at least four links are needed. These silver links are $85 each, so four of them would be $695. That leaves 67 links in pure copper at $8 each for a cost of $96. You could also choose to have more silver links and fewer copper ones, if you feel like it. So the cost of a bangle with three fine gold links, four fine silver links, and twelve copper links would be just about: Q:
How should I keep the bangle clean and should I get it annealed on a regular basis? Disclamier, annealing a Three Metal Bangle requires heating your bangle to a red hot state.
