Heritage Revival Jewellery

India is synonymous with diversity. The way of life, customs, traditions, beliefs, geography vary widely. Since ancient times, the design and choice of material of different pieces of jewellery was synonymous with a region and its identity. Social and economic standing in society further determined the nature of jewellery worn by people. People used to travel frequently across the country for trade and commerce, carrying traditions of clothing styles and jewellery with them. While gold was favoured by southern India, the north upwards of Madhya Pradesh, had a preference for silver.

Jewellery was thus an indispensable part of one’s attire and identity. Earrings in particular, proved to be an economical investment, since they were the most prominently visible. The design, shape, sizes, metals used for earrings vary widely across India. In today’s fast-paced world, we have become global citizens. People move away from ancestral homes. Often, convenience and practicality take precedence in our choices.

From fast food to fast fashion, warehouses have a standardised solution for all our needs. Yet, the pride for one’s culture and heritage is constant in the heart. In an attempt to preserve India’s rich cultural heritage, House of Aadyaa has recreated heirloom earrings in Silver.
