Introduction:

Term Jewellery is a derivative of the French word “jouel” and Latin word “jocale” for Jewellery meaning “graceful object”. It has been in society moving since human evolution. But in broader perspective, jewellery is basically a piece of material – Animal bone, Shell, Wood, Carved stone, Gold, Platinum, or diamond – that enhances grace of the wearer. In the Indian culture as well, jewellery plays a significant role in conveying ethnic and spiritual meanings. For example, bridal jewellery symbolises the welcoming of the bride into her new life as a married woman. There are many other occasions beside your wedding to wear jewellery, something for office wear, to gift to someone, or just for your everyday wear. Whatever the season, jewellery designs have evolved over the years to match contemporary tastes, and even more so in the modern day.
In society, jewellery has always been known to be associated with wealth, power, and status. For example, in ancient Rome, only certain ranks could wear rings on their fingers. Latest jewellery is no longer just a jeweller in jewellery stores tinkering and moulding the perfect piece against a hot flame; instead with the advent of technology, jewellery today is akin to wearable art!
Artisans in India have a long history of producing some of the most exquisite designs modelled on deities, floral and animal designs and embody an old-word charm.
