The origin of temple jewellery starts from worship in the temple. Hindu devotees would wear jewellery that signified their devotion. The pieces were shaped like the deities, made of gold or dipped in gold. These temple jewellery designs are indicative of how the devotees would carry around a piece of their God with them everywhere they went.
Most of these jewellery were in gold and had embedded gems and stones. However, even silver was used in this heritage jewellery but the significance of gold overshadowed it.
In modern culture, temple jewellery is not only limited to the temple but is worn in weddings celebrations too. And it should be as such because we must not limit our beautiful jewelleries to one place and wear them in the brightest places. In addition, we carry a symbol of our Gods with us, and therefore, it evokes a tranquil ambiance around us.
