Sharaf-e Shams is the name given to a special type of engraving on a ring stone, which is believed to banish sorrow, depression, bad luck, and negativity. Some others say you will never be in dire situations when wearing the ring stone on which Sharaf-e Shams is engraved.

Special symbols and numbers are engraved at the back of the stones at a certain time of the year for only one day and night when the moon is in Scorpio (April 8).

On this day, a special prayer called Sharaf al-Shams or Sharaf-e Shams, which consists of five major names of God, is engraved on ring stones, usually yellow agate, in order to solve the problems of the wearer.

Wearing agate is believed to cure insomnia and those who wear agate believe they get long life, family happiness, and prosperity. It is also said that agate can create joy in the heart, and is good for eyesight.
