India is a land of many religions, cultures and traditions. With numerous deities to worship and celebrate throughout the year, religious jewellery is an ancient craft form that has sustained its importance and value in the eyes of devotees, even to this date. In ancient times, religious jewellery was crafted using wood and other commonly available materials, and what made these pieces of jewellery sacred, was that they would be exclusively worn by priests, religious leaders, or would be donated to the gods or priests as religious offerings.
However, in modern times, as the economies and awareness grew, sacred religious jewellery is largely made in precious metals like gold and silver. Modern Devotional jewellery features many intricately curated designs which may feature devotional gold pendants or silver pendants etched with motifs of gods, sometimes even inlaid with precious & semi-precious stones. Another reason for the popularity of religious jewellery is the strong beliefs in Astrology, Numerology, the Zodiac and other related sciences in India.
Gold and Silver Devotional Jewellery is considered very sacred and precious, to adorn personally, to gift to your loved ones on propitious occasions and festivals, or even offer to temples or priests as offerings. These precious metals are so popular in India, that there are special festivals and days like Dhanteras, Diwali & Akshaya Tritiya when it is considered highly auspicious to buy gold & silver in any form, as it is believed to bring luck and prosperity into the lives of devotees.
With such a spiritually inclined country and sundry religious beliefs, customs and festivals, jewellers in India have evolved and adapted their design strategies to the needs of Indian Consumers. They now carry a wide range of religious jewellery catering to the demands of such a diversified demographic.
One of the most devotedly celebrated religious festival in India is Ganesh Chaturthi. This day is celebrated as Lord Ganesha’s birthday who is the eldest son of Lord Shiva & Parvati. He is fondly worshipped as the God of wisdom & luck, the remover of obstacles and is always prayed to before any other god for a fortunate beginning to any new venture, deed or prayer. Ganesh Chaturthi was made a customary nation-wide celebration and festival in 1894 by freedom fighter Lokmanya Tilak. Every year, this festival comes in the month of August or September, and is celebrated advertently by devotees in several states across India. It begins on Ganesh chaturthi & ends on Anant chaturdashi, lasting for 10-11days.
