Glimpses of Diwali Celebrations

Read Previous Article: Happy Deepavali - 2014



The most awaited festival of the year; festival lights – Diwali is gone. The celebration of this festival demands lot of preparations. At least a fortnight prior to the festival.

Diwali brings in the idea of oil massage early in the morning and hot water bath, new clothes, sweets and delicacies, gifts, crackers, Dhana-Lakshmi Puja, Govu (Cow) Puja, Balindra Puja, Tulasi Puja, gold, silk, decorative diyas, decorative lightings around the house, rangoli designs and many more traditions associated.

Last week saw the festive celebration with great pomp. Though the festival is gone, the festive mood is still not gone.

Some gold and diamond on this festive occasion.

No festival is complete without gold in India. Some plan for heavy gold jewellery purchase, some go for a light weight gold coin purchase. Gold and silver purchases are done in every house. 

The showrooms also put up many tempting offers during this time and encourage buyers to celebrate diwali with the shopping.

Another addition to the personal gold collection. The pendant is a beautiful piece with Goddess Lakshmi at the center. The Goddess Lakshmi Pendant is hung from the traditional design wrinkled gold balls chain.

diwali diamond purchase

A single diamond stone ring set on 22k gold. More details of these jeweleries some other time. 

New clothes

New clothing on the occasion of Deepavali is a tradition that has come from ages. Not just buying for you, gifting clothes is also observed amongst family members.
