Trends In Indian Wedding Gold Jewelry

‘Rich and rare were the gems she wore
And a bright gold ring on her hand she bore…’
– (Thomas Moore)

In any Indian wedding ceremony, the bride’s elaborate ensemble is incomplete without traditional gold jewelry. The glitter of gold enhances the beauty of the bride’s costume and adds a lot of dazzle to the ceremony. Gold is also considered auspicious and an essential part of the wedding rituals. Besides ornaments, gold is also used in brocades and fabrics to add luster to the bride’s dress.

Finding the right gold ornaments and shopping for the right jewelry is an elaborate process that needs careful planning. It takes a lot of research and shopping to ascertain the right jewelers that offer innovative designs along with pure and reliable gold. In recent years, the prices of the yellow metal have soared globally. Adverse economic conditions have drawn the attention of investors worldwide to gold, thus pushing up the prices. This trend is likely to continue in the years to come. Under these circumstances, there are new options available to prospective brides to plan in advance and invest in gold in preparation for the wedding.

One of the most convenient options is to start investing in gold at an early age. Gold can be purchased in small denominations in monthly installments in Gold Exchange Traded Funds (or ETFs). This is an affordable way to invest in gold. Basically, it averages out the cost of gold. Even if there is a variation or spike in the price of gold before the wedding date, it does not burn a hole in your pocket. The cost of the gold is the average price at which you have accumulated gold over the years. Besides cost efficiency, this option is also secure since you can hold the valuable possession in a dematerialized (or demat) format. At the time of the wedding, the gold can be converted into physical gold and used to buy or make jewelry of your choice!
