Diwali the Festival of Lights is upon us and it represents the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance and hope over despair. So what of our jewellery?
Before the celebration, people all over the world clean and decorate their homes and work spaces. On Diwali, people dress up in new clothes, new jewellery and light up lamps and candles inside and outside their home. No room can be left in the dark.
The day is typically spent catching up with loved ones, eating mithai (Indian sweets) and getting together as a family to do puja (prayers). After puja, the fireworks start as does the family feast, and exchange of gifts between family members and close friends.
