#FutureHeirlooms – Indian Jewellery

#FutureHeirlooms – Indian Jewellery

In India, Gold is more than just a precious metal and gold jewellery beyond just a possession. Gold is an integral part of our religious and cultural beliefs, the acquisition of which is done over generations, it’s part of our heritage and is ancestral.

Buying gold on auspicious/special occasions is part of our custom and adorning gold jewellery is always the highlight of the festivities.

With the wedding season around the corner, it only reminds me how no Indian wedding is complete without gold. Gold signifies purity, prosperity and good fortune and so in each Indian wedding, gold jewellery is gifted to the bride as blessings from the family.

I recently visited Neelkanth Jewellers (Hyderabad) in collaboration with LoveGold for a #FutureHeirlooms story. The idea was to pick pieces I’d love to pass on to my future generations.

The store had beautifully crafted pieces, some of which I couldn’t even take my eyes off. Since I originally hail from north India, Delhi to be precise, the traditional south Indian jewellery seemed fascinating.

The store had a healthy mix of south as well as north Indian jewellery pieces. Here are a few pictures I took in the store:

The intricate details on each piece really amazed me; all the work is hand-crafted. After spending a lot of time checking out all the pieces I possibly could, I picked up some gold jewellery with Nakshi Work, all hand-crafted, as my #FutureHeirlooms pieces.

Now the kind of gold indian jewellery I like is strongly influenced by my mother’s choice. Being the eldest daughter in my family, she would often take me along whenever she had to buy some gold and I’d always love what she’d pick.

So these jewellery pieces only reminded me of her and the jewellery she gifted me on my wedding day and so I’d love to pass on something like to this to my future generations.

Keeping the wedding season in mind I kept my outfit on the ethnic side. I paired a self designed Lehnga with a plain black crop top (from Koovs) to keep the look clutter free considering all the jewellery I wore plus gold only looks great with a dark backdrop.

As they say, beauty lies in the details… each piece is a work of art !

As mentioned above, the work done on these gold jewellery pieces is called Nakshi Work. Further, there’s stone and kundan work done on it. The designs are mostly based around peacocks as down south, peacock jewellery is very popular. Since Hyderabad is also a city of pearls, there’s a bit of detailing with pearls too.

This kind of jewellery is mostly worn on occasions such as weddings, festivals such as Diwali and more.

The neck-pieces such as these, usually take around a month each to complete as everything is hand-crafted. The store, Neelkanth Jewellers (Hyderabad) has their own set of designers and everything is made in-house.

    What i do not realize is in fact how you’re no longer actually a lot more well-liked than you
    might be right now. You are so intelligent.
    You know thus considerably in terms of this subject, made me personally
    consider it from a lot of various angles. Its like men and women are not
    interested until it’s something to accomplish with Woman gaga!
    Your own stuffs outstanding. All the time take care
    of it up!

    Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to know so much about this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you just could do with a few p.c. to power the message house a bit, but other than that, that is excellent blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

Your idea is excellent; the problem is one thing that not sufficient people are talking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing referring to this.
