Diversity of Indian Jewellery

  • Gold Jewellery

Gold is the sign of desire, fire and prosperity. In India, gold is a form of guaranteed investment. It is also believed to be suitable for occasions like marriage, engagement etc. There are various online retailers, who sell gold earrings, gold Bali, gold bracelets, gold rings, gold necklaces etc. at affordable prices. During peak season, these retailers offer bulk discounts and sell high quality jewellery pieces of exquisite designs.

However, while purchasing gold jewellery online, make sure you double check the seller is reliable and the originality of the pieces, which he is selling. You should be very careful with the hallmark logo and warranty period of jewellery so that there is no discrepancy in the future.

Though purchasing gold jewellery online gives you many advantages, make sure you buy it from an authentic retailer so that there are no chances of you falling into the trick of fraudulent websites. However, gold jewellery pieces are good to go, but if you have good budget and you can afford diamonds, then go for it. There are exquisite designs available in diamond earrings, diamond Bali, diamond bracelets etc. and during the wedding season you can avail bulk discounts on these pieces.

Antique Jewellery

The value of antique jewellery can be understood from its name itself. Many pieces of antique jewellery feature fine workmanship and excellent quality gemstones. Metals used for making this jewellery include ivory, jet, pearl, coral and shell etc. With a little care, pieces of antique jewellery can be a worthy investment.

Bridal Jewellery

Bridal jewellery is crafted considering the requirements of brides-to-be who love wearing unique pieces having fascinating designs and patterns. Wedding is a very special day in every girl’s life so every girl wants to wear attractive jewellery pieces to look like a princess. A jewellery box having jewellery of vivid designs and colours and designs can add to the happiness of the bride.

Handmade jewellery

This jewellery is made and assembled by craftsmen with their hands and there is no use of machines in making it. These pieces are cut, bonded, engraved and then designed with the hands.

In contrast to machine made jewellery, these pieces require a lot of time in making a single piece. Hence, the craftsman has very warm relationship with each design he/she creates. The materials used for making these jewellery pieces are of extensive quality and therefore it’s difficult for one to know the exact use of alloys in making these pieces. However, these pieces are usually costlier than machine made jewellery pieces.
