Give me all the jewels ✨ while jewelry is something I love and adore, jewelry in South Asian cultures has larger significance than beauty. Bridal jewelry and jewels worn in wedding ceremonies often symbolize wealth and power, but also symbolize two families becoming one. Additionally, there are numerous pieces of jewelry that represent religion. Jewelry, in Hinduism, is connected to the beautiful Gods and Goddesses and their blessing for the wearer’s future. Here, I have portrayed varying pieces such as chumkas, tikkas, earrings, necklaces and chooriyan all in gold, to symbolize health and prosperity 💫 the purpose of this piece is to open ideas to the meaning of jewelry in South Asian community, and to create a sense of appreciation for this aspect of our culture 🙌🏽
