“Gold! Gold! Gold! Gold! Bright and yellow, hard and cold” – wrote Thomas Hood but to most Indian women gold is anything but cold.
Warm yellow gold is beautiful, long lasting and considered to be auspicious in India where on her wedding day a bride is expected to be literally wrapped in gold jewellery from head to toe. Gold jewellery is bought on occasions like Akshay Tritiya and Dhanteras to symbolize the entry of goddess lakhsmi inside the home.
Lustrous sparkling gold jewellery is one of the most treasured and cherished possessions of women across the world. Gold hardly ever tarnishes and proves to be a valuable asses6t for the future as they are passed down generations as family heirlooms at the time of a wedding.
