Indian Jewellery Collection

Indian Jewellery Collection

Hello this is Shabbal, I’m back for my next post. I hope you enjoyed reading my last post about Harley Davidson and found my previous posts interesting too. If you read my first posts, you’ll remember that I very much enjoy art. Although I have a few pieces from some of my favourite artists, I don’t really have a collection of paintings. I prefer to collect Jewellery. Many items of jewellery have been passed down from my family which was passed down to them by their elders. I feel very lucky to have many pieces from many different times. I have managed to add a few pieces myself over time and always look out for interesting pieces to add to my collection.

In India, Jewellery plays a very big part in our culture and traditions. Jewellery is worn not just as a status symbol but also for good health and prosperity.

During times of celebration, I dress-up in my Jewellery from head to toe and wear one of my dresses full of sequins and bright colours. Depending on the type of celebration, I will wear a different combination of dress and jewellery. I also have a few different Maang Tika which is a kind of head-dress, that I where in accordance with the rest of my outfit. One of my favourite types of jewellery to dress in is the Kardani which you wear as a belly chain but perhaps my most favourite of all jewellery though are Anklets. We call them Payal in Hindi. They make a lovely chiming sound when walking and look very beautiful. I obviously also have many arm-bands, necklaces and rings that I wear at different times.
