JewelleryJewellery in India has drawn upon the many facets of its people, and has in turn been inspiration and solace to both wearer and beholder. To the many classical writers, gold was a source of enchanting visual metaphors. Rulers used jewels as statements of power and prestige. But to the Indian woman particularly, gold holds special significance to her life. It is far more than the ultimate enhancer of beauty, it is that precious thing which stays and grows with her though the different stages in life, as daughter, wife, mother, and in her personal growth as a woman. It is also her Stridhan - her security in the face of adversity, to be encashed in times of need or distress. The Indian woman has always been very creative in her expression of jewellery and design. In keeping with Indias rich heritage of diversity, jewellery also takes on regional nuances. It is the ultimate and most-personal expression of region specific culture and art, of lifestyles and heritage. It draws inspiration from architecture, dance and even religious customs. The Indian womans love affair with jewellery does not end with India and traditional jewellery. An upcoming trend seen especially in the metros has been women drawing towards contemporary jewellery. These are young, fashion-conscious women who desire smart jewellery that can be accessorized with their wardrobe.
