The festive season that began with Ganesh Chaturthi is in full swing with the ongoing festival of Shardiya Navratri, which will conclude on 15th October i.e. on Vijayadashmi or Dussehra. It is customary to buy and gift silver items during the festivals, particularly on Deepawali.
“This time we have come up with a different variety. In the antique and oxidized category of silver jewelry, there is a new range of choker sets, long sets, and parandas for hair. Apart from this, there are gift items like small and big idols of deities, dinner sets, photo frames, clutches, mobile covers and flower pots for Diwali,” says Subhash Chopra, Proprietor of Shakti Jewelers, a wholesale cum retail silver outlet based at SCO 37, FF, Sector 23C, Chandigarh.
Subhash Chopra said that the wedding season is about to begin, for that, customized silver invitation cards are made on order as per the client’s choice or budget. Our silver products are of 92.5 and 999 level purity.
On the new trend of silver, Chopra said that earlier silver Parandas were bought for brides only. However, now it has become a common practice to wear it at festivals. This gives women a different look. Silver pouches, purses and oxidized wallets are very much in trend for gifting. Similarly, the trend of silver slippers has also started. There are options of Punjabi Juttis in silver. Wearing them on special occasions can enhance the beauty of the feet.
What about the shining of the silver products? He says that if you keep using silver items, the shine is maintained. But if pure silver is left uncovered, it starts turning black. Therefore, pure silver should be kept in an air-tight packing.
