Indians have been using jewelry for adornment since centuries. The significance of jewelry in the country is evident from the fact that on many auspicious occasions jewelry forms a part of gifts. Though the trend of men adoring themselves has now faded away many of them still use earrings bracelets pedants etc. However it is the Indian women for whom jewelry holds utmost significance. In India jewelry is considered auspicious for women. Even poorest of poor women will have some kind of jewelry with them. Jewelry has not only been considered for the purpose of adoration but also as a security in times of contingency. This is because it is often expensive and can be sold whenever there is dire need of money. This way jewelry also serves the purpose of insurance which can be depended upon. Jewelry forms the important part of adoration among Indian women. To accentuate their feminine beauty they use jewelry made of gold silver and diamonds. Traditionally jewelry has always been linked with wealth power and status.

Jewellery is an integral part of our society. In many cultures gold jewelries are gifted to the bride by her parents. It is considered as blessing and good luck.

Why jewellery is only related to women? Men also wear jewellery. In fact years ago, the kings were fully adorned with jewellery.
