Jewellery in India is not just a way to enhance a woman's beauty. It is a reflection of rich culture and tradition that goes back thousands of years. The first jewellery was born in nature and it has had a heavy influence on Indian jewellery designs since. Historical paintings show that our ancestors turned to natural elements such as flowers, leaves and vines for their fashion needs in the ancient times. Another factor that makes Indian jewellery unique is that it bears witness to a medley of diverse cultures, thoughts and artistry in India.
