Celebrating the auspiciousness of Gold
Since ancient times, India has been known as a "Golden bird", and to date, gold is an integral aspect of our culture, tradition and heritage. A symbol of luck, prosperity, abundance and auspiciousness. People see gold as embodying goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. The possession of gold symbolises a sense of pride and power, and represents a wealthy and affluent lifestyle. Mythologically, it is believed that the colour gold radiates positive vibes and eliminates all negativity. In other words, "Gold over Evil".
The last two years' hiatus due to the pandemic has undoubtedly taught us the theory of "Live in today", which only means golden days ahead. The age-old ritual of gifting ornaments made from this metal has lived on for centuries symbolising good fortune and luck. Gold ornaments, jewellery, and timepieces have always been trusted investments and are increasingly purchased during the auspicious days of Navratri, Akshaya Tritya, Dussehra, Dhanteras and Diwali to mark the occasion and celebrate the auspiciousness of gold.
