…So, we are back with another special edition on Indian ethnic jewellery!
By now, we have covered the specialities of Kundan, Gandaberunda, Meenakari, Polki, and Jadau; today, we will talk about something that always had a specific place in our jewellery collection, as well as our hearts – and that is nothing other than the priceless “TEMPLE JEWELRY”!
While starting with that, we need to take you back to the 9th century, perhaps the most celebrated period of South India, when art, literature, and tantalizing cuisine attained the peak growth. Accompanying these, the royal reign of Chola, Pandya dynasties during the time gifted us an unprecedented treasure of divine looking jewellery.
This very shortly started to beautify the appearances of Gods and Goddesses in temples; hence got the name “Temple Jewellery”! In later eras, the jewellery continued to impress women. And today, they are in vogue and are available according to the diverse taste of buyers.
And that’s how the storyline goes on…
Well, here are the top five pieces from the exquisite temple jewellery collection of ANS that you would buy within a heartbeat. Scroll down and pick your favourites from the list right away!
