India's love affair with gold is eternal, across
centuries and millennia. It is much more to us than just a precious metal. - It
is part of our culture and our belief system.
In Hindu folklore, some of our goddesses
are described as golden-hued, the definitive in beauty. Gold, as the source of purity
and splendour, is referred to as the seed of Agni, the God of
Fire. Manu the ancient law-giver decreed that golden ornaments
must be worn for particular ceremonies and occasions.
It is thus considered a sacred item in the
Hindu way of life and is a necessity in every holy function, the reason being
that Gold is pure having passed through fire in its process of evolution.
Indians perceive the metal as a representation of purity, prosperity and good
fortune. Hopeful and positive, Gold adds a luminosity and warmth to everything
with which it is associated.
It is thus not surprising at all that gold
has become an integral part of modern day events and functions. Given its
versatility, it can be used in different designs, paired with different colours
and accessories. Just a hint of Gold can enhance one’s look immediately. Pothys
has many a design in the different shades of this divine colour.
