NAVRATANS make a comeback
Although the origin of the Navratans (nine gems) is almost untraceable, the sacred jewellery deeply embedded in many Asian cultures, including ours, continues to woo women with its sheer elegance. Worn by royalties throughout the ages, the jewellery's popularity has found a new life amongst here.
During the days of the Mughals, Navratans used to symbolise power and social stature. The nine magnificent gems that make up the Navratan - ruby, sapphire, pearl, emerald, diamond, coral, topaz, garnet, and cat's eye are considered auspicious – a belief stemmed from centuries of Indian, astrological wisdom.
Today, the Navratans have come back with an understated freshness. No longer are they considered sole properties of the royalties, but are worn by anyone with the necessary monetary needs.
"Especially over the last couple of years, we have observed a resurgence of the Navratans as the ornaments of choice by the modern women. Polki is the preferred canvas for the nine mesmerising gems, not only because it makes each gem visibly stand out, but also because it makes a wholesome piece of absolute beauty.
"We are responding by continuously trying to innovate and introduce new pieces accommodating the nine jewels to meet the demand of our clients," said Avi Roy, Sales Director at Jarwa House.
Since Navratans accommodate a wide range of jewellery from heavy Chandabalis to simple everyday earrings, bangles, rings, and even lockets, they can be used to adorn the looks practically at any occasion.
The Navaratans will not only add vibrancy to her look, but also make her look confident, gorgeous and charming.
Hence, it is not difficult to say that Navratans are here to stay and reign supreme.
