In India, people always felt a deep bond with the pieces of jewellery they owned from ancient times. And what’s interesting is that the roots of this love for their jewellery belong to not the prices of the metal but the priceless sentiments that establish a never-ending connection with that piece to a precious memory, the oldness, or a person who gave them that certain piece as a gift.
In all those days, decades, and even centuries, the love of Indian people for jewellery hasn’t diminished by a small bit. Instead, it kept going stronger to a point where the Indian women set the world record for having the most gold and silver than the women of any other country. The trends of jewellery may always come and go, but the desire to own beautiful jewellery in Indian women and in some cultures, men, never goes out of the scene. Nowadays, men can easily be seen wearing and flaunting their gold or silver om bracelets. On the other hand, women also have their staple jewellery accessories to wear on a number of occasions i.e. Ganesha Kada.
