Celebrate yourself and invest in natural diamond jewellery on this auspicious dayBy Divya Gursahani |
Akshaya Tritiya, which falls on the third day of the Hindu month of Vaishakha, is celebrated across the country with great ceremony. The origin of this sacred day remains one of Hindu mythology’s most memorable tales. The ‘Akshaya Patra’ was a divine vessel which was given to Yudhishthira by Surya. According to the epic Mahabharata, it offered an inexhaustible supply of food to the Pandavas. They received this much needed blessing during a period of exile, marking the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya. Real diamonds similarly, are a perennial source of pleasure and pride. It is due to their longevity that we often hear the adage, ‘every diamond tells a story.’ This year, celebrate the annual occasion with the most joyous investment—natural diamond jewellery you can wear every day!
Considered to be propitious for success and wealth, it is believed that an investment made on Akshaya Tritiya signifies good fortune. This special day is as much about acknowledging the delight of the present as it is about welcoming new, prosperous energy into your life. Invest in precious bling you can wear on the daily—think, a diamond locket to make you feel cherished every moment of the day or a pair of classic solitaires which will make both your outfits and life sparklier.
Contemporary jewellery enthusiasts are opting for multi-purpose pieces that make for the best heirlooms—layered detachable necklaces, brooches that double up as pendants and chokers that can be worn as bracelets.
