Emerald with Diamonds
Note: from a Jyotisha remedial perspective, pure emerald is almost always enhanced and made more efficacious when paired with pure diamonds.
Jyotisha viewpoint = emerald strengthens Budha's gifts of rational thought, counting and calculating, handcraft and tool use; hands, arms and lungs.
Because psycho-emotional conditions form the precursor to physical conditions, on the material plane the Budha-ratna may help to alleviate some discomforts related to lack of accuracy:
Not good for Mesha lagna!

Because Budha is an inherently dual graha, setting in gold or silver is also OK.
Emerald with Diamond is a popular combination set in platinum.
Although the below photo of Iran's "Farah Diba" in youth does not demonstrate Jyotisha cultural settings designed to touch the skin, it does show the beauty of emeralds paired with diamonds in a platinum base.

BPL note on Moti-Pearl + Emerald-Panna
Dr. Kapoor's view that Chandra-ratna should not be mixed with ratna for the cool graha is generally quite true. But as always in Jyotisha, each individual nativity is unique and general rules should be adjusted to individual configurations when and if appropriate.
From Chandra's own perspective, Moon has no enemies.
However: Budha, Shukra, Shani, and Rahu-Ketu *all* dislike Chandra
Therefore it could be (theoretically) OK to wear Pearl with Emerald *during the major periods of Chandra*, presuming the two graha are well disposed in the nativity, and presuming that the panna and the mukthi are both flawless and properly set.
It may be preferable to wear Budha-ratna on the left hand and Chandra-ratna in the right hand, or to wear the Pearl as a pendant to touch the 4th chakra while the garudazman is set in a finger-ring of silver, if both stones are to be worn in the same period of life.]
Naturally for such a prescription to be feasible, Chandra and Budha must occupy mutual trines and both should rule good houses from lagna,
regarding Thula lagna, the combination *could be* warranted in adulthood after age 50, depending on the details of the individual nativity. Chandra = karmesha-10 for professional responsibility + Budha = dharmesha-9 for consciousness of the dharma can be harmonized in certain cases.
However one rule which is never good to break = Pearl should never be paired with Ketu-ratna or Rahu-ratna. Such a pairing could place the native in an unstable, arrhythmic state of psycho-emotional 'eclipse'.
I am in the process of buying an Emerald (Panna) as you recommended, and would like to have your advice on these questions:
1. Which shape - Rectangular, Square, Round or Oval? 2. Light colour or dark colour 3. Instead of a gold ring, can I get this made in a platinum ring?
2. Light colour or dark colour
3. Instead of a gold ring, can I get this made in a platinum ring?
1. any shape is OK. The cutter chooses the best shape to bring out the luster and clarity of the stone. The psychic transmission qualities of the ratna are due to interior purity (few or no cracks, bumps, interruptions). Psychic transmission is not affected by the exterior shape of the ratna.
Therefore any shape chosen by the professional cutter is good. But of course the stone itself must be as free of inclusions as possible. (With emeralds some inclusions are inevitable but as few as possible is best.)
2. this is also according to your taste. Generally if your eye is visually attracted toward a ratna, ask to hold it in the center of your hand for a moment while the seller is watching. Feel the ratna with your palm open, then close the hand over the stone and feel the vibration of the ratna. Try both hands. Give yourself some time to sense the subtlety.
A reputable Jyotisha ratna vendor will always permit the buyer to touch and hold several gems. If after holding several ratna the outcome is that none of the gems is suitable, a non-sale is usually fine with the vendor since they want a successful match just as much as you do. Successful person-to-gem matches make happy customers and that happiness will build the vendor's positive reputation.
Usually the eye's tastes are a good indicator of a ratna that matches your highest thoughts however it is a good idea to use the palm-skin test also.
3. Yes, platinum is OK. Most people who wear emerald will at some point add a diamond or blue sapphire and thus platinum is OK. However if you plan to eventually add a ruby then a gold is required.
