Legacy Of Indian Jewellery

The origination of Indian jewellery can be traced back to the history of our nation. In the ancient times, Indian women felt the need to beautify themselves, thus leading to the creation of jewellery. The inundation of precious stones and gems in the Indian land resulted in it being used in various forms of ornaments, to enhance one's beauty. The availability of these gems and metals was one of the reasons why foreigners were attracted to India. The reasons for owning jewellery now, and then has been different however. Earlier, it was to showcase their wealth, power and prestige in the society, whereas now, it is more of a symbol of having a secure financial investment.

What further adds to the charm and aura of Indian jewellery is that every part of the country has made its own contribution to the numerous styles of jewellery. For example, the delicate silver filigree work is well known in Orissa and Andhra Pradesh, while jewellery with Meenakumari work, which consists of enamel in its jewels, is famous in Jaipur. Kundan jewellery made from precious and semi precious stones is widely used in Delhi. Another ancient type of jewellery, which originated from West Bengal is Navrattan, consisting of nine gemstones, namely ruby, sapphire, emerald, coral, turquoise, cat's eye, opal, pearl and diamond.

Ideally one should use their jewellery only when required and should avoid using it while performing house-hold chores. Wearing jewellery with designs regularly, would lead to the accumulation of dir and make it lose its shine. Ornaments are also prone to lose its shine, if it comes in contact with make-up and perfume.

Ideally, it is better to avoid cleaning any Indian jewellery by yourself, if it has precious stones or is painted. Gold ornaments should be cleansed with warm diluted dish washing liquids to preserve its appearance and shine. Ornaments should be soaked in some diluted detergent and gently dried after rinsing it with plain water. For removing hardened stains and dirt, some regular toothpaste should be rubbed with the help of a small piece of cotton. To drain excess water from the jewellery a soft cloth should be used. Tissues should be totally avoided as they may leave residues or form scratches on the jewellery.

Adorning Platinum Jewelry

There are certain things that a woman cannot get enough of, jewellery being one of them. Being a woman's most wanted accessory, the demand for jewellery never declines. Though gold jewelry has been a favourite among women across all age groups, platinum - jewelry is also slowly gaining momentum over time. In the past decade, P. jewelry has been one of the most preferred ornaments of women.

The primary reason for the increasing popularity of platinum jewelry is its look which is chic and contemporary. While gold jewelry gives a sense of prestige and status, platinum - jewelry oozes confidence and intelligence. That said, both of them have their loyal followers and are brilliant in their own unique way.

Metals used for the making of jewelry belong to only one group as a whole. However, owing to its rarity, platinum costs more than other metals and hence, we have to spend more when purchasing p. jewelry as compared to gold or silver jewelry. The royal white glow that platinum exhibits is one of a kind and hence, is most desired by women.

Pairing platinum products with precious gemstones makes its appearance all the more appealing and attractive. The aesthetic value of any platinum - jewelry lies in its simplicity and manages to attract women and jewelers alike. The high price that accompanies its rare beauty and unique appeal is the reason for the huge demand and desire that platinum boasts of.

Apart from its exquisite and dazzling appearance, p. jewelry also assures high durability and flexibility. This is the major reason why many people opt for platinum engagement and wedding rings. Platinum enjoys royalty in the market due to its weight, which is usually higher than gold or silver. If you're looking for something that will last for a long time without much maintenance, then platinum jewelry is the thing for you.

Along with the increasing popularity of p. jewelry, the number of options to choose from is also increasing. Platinum jewelry has evolved with the role of women in society. Women today have a number of tasks to perform and platinum compliments this nature of women very well with its robust yet elegant feel.

This precious metal known as platinum not only attracts women, but attracts men too. Since it signifies strength and power, men tend to relate to it easily. Also, some people are allergic to silver or gold jewelry which makes platinum their best option.
