THE STORY BEHIND IT

The Deities of Indian Temple Jewelry

During festivals and occasions of worship in India, women often wear temple jewelry, believed to be auspicious and to attract good fortune. The most revered designs found on temple jewelry pendants depict the beloved Hindu deities.

The elephant-headed god Ganesha, is known to remove obstacles and bestow good luck and fortune and symbolizes new beginnings. Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity, both material and spiritual who also represents wisdom, fortune, generosity and courage. She is also thought to be the embodiment of beauty and grace. In some forms of Hindu, Buddha is one of the 10 prominent "Avatars" or superior beings of Vishnu, the supreme god and preserver of the universe. Buddha represents the compassionate heart and universal truth. The hands of lovers Krishna and Radha symbolize eternal love and are typically worn by lovers.

For over 5000 years temple jewelry has been an integral part of Indian culture, practice and style. However, what was once traditionally worn exclusively during times of worship, these intricate and unique pieces are often worn year around.
