Jewellery, especially the ones given at weddings, hold special meanings in their intricate designs. Each piece has its own story to tell. The olden ‘tikli’ (the forehead pendant that had the star and moon designs carved up in red rubies and whitish yellow ‘pukhraj’ or yellow sapphire stones) promotes prosperity, wealth, and marital bliss. The lover’s knot or ‘prem fash’ designed chain holds its meaning in the name. ‘Prem’ in Bengali is love, and ‘fash’ means a grip, so as the name suggests, it is a lover’s grip, a treasured design construed in a bangle or chain given to the beloved as a wedding-night gift.
It all began at the dawn of time when man first set foot on Earth. The jewellery made back then was not identical to the ornaments made today. Feathers, bones, shells, and colourful stones were among the materials used in ancient jewellery. These gemstone-like stones were jewels, and gems have long been treasured for their beauty and durability in adornments. Diamonds were only widely used once humans discovered how to cut them to show off their brilliance, which began around 1300 A.D. in Europe. Many contemporary jewellery designs started off as useful things.
