Diwali and Dhanteras
Historically, Diwali or Deepavali has many different origin stories, but at its heart, it is a festival that celebrates good over evil and invites blessings home. During Diwali, many homes light diyas in honour of the goddess Lakshmi who brings wealth, goodness, and prosperity. In addition to buying new clothes, utensils, Diwali jewellery, vehicles, furniture and sweets, people exchange gifts with their loved ones. The five-day-long festival of lights begins with Dhanteras. Dhanteras symbolises annual renewal, cleansing and an auspicious beginning to the new year.

Why do people buy jewellery on Dhanteras?
Dhanteras means wealth, making it a great day for starting something new to grow and prosper. On Dhanteras, buying items made of precious metals like gold is considered auspicious. It is also good luck to give gifts to your family on this day. What’s a better gift for a happy Diwali than 18KT gold jewellery? Gold jewellery is a good investment during Dhanteras. In addition to highlighting the festival, it serves as a future investment. But shopping for Dhanteras gold in this modern day and age does not have to be limited to traditional gold coins and heavy Indian designs. Festivals like Dhanteras are a great time to create your traditions; connecting with your roots but adding your touch to them in keeping with the times. And what better way to do that on Dhanteras than by investing in necklaces, rings, earrings and pendants that you can wear daily instead of keeping a gold coin in a locker!
