Our Values

Oocha Mani offers custom jewelry and comprehensive gemstone recommendations in the Jyotish (Vedic astrology) tradition of Śrī Achyutānanda Das, as taught by our Jyotish guru Pt. Sanjay Rath. 

Our Jyotish gemstone recommendations are accompanied with beneficial mantras and auspicious muhūrta (astrological timing) to begin wearing your jewelry as per the tradition. Gems are recommended after an in-depth study of your Jyotish chart for the purpose of strengthening health, finances, spiritual practice, personal relationships, and life direction. The complexity of this science requires years of study to be done properly.

All our our designs are the work of Nala Saraswati, who works closely with you to create your ideal jewelry, whether it's for Jyotish, Ayurveda, or bridal jewelry. 

Ethical Sourcing: Decades of researching sources of natural, fair-trade gemstones has established us as the trusted source for the highest quality untreated precious gems. We are committed to working with conflict-free sources for all of our diamonds and gemstones and we utilize 100% recycled precious metals originally sourced from socially responsible, small-scale mines.

Charitable Contributions: We are pleased to report our initiative in donating to charity 3% of proceeds from any jewelry and/or mala purchase made with us. These contributions include donations to our curated list of independent non-profits (humanitarian and education-based) and temples, with the goal of helping to support the preservation of Vedic knowledge and the restoration/building of temples for future generations. A portion of proceeds will also be allocated for the sponsorship of pūjās (ceremonies) that are conducted worldwide for the spiritual progress of all and for world peace.
