Five Pieces to light up your Diwali!

Happy Dipawali!!!

Diwali, or Deepavali  – the Festival of Lights is an ancient Hindu festival celebrating the victory of light over darkness, and hope over despair.

Having originated as a Harvest Festival, during this time, prayers are often directed towards Lakshmi – the goddess of Prosperity, for a successful new year. The fireworks signify Rama’s return to his kingdom after a 14 year exile, as well as his defeat of king Ravana.

The date of this special festival changes every year, based on the position of the moon and Hindu lunar calendar. This year, Diwali is being celebrated from today, November 11th through November 15th.

Diwali is celebrated throughout the world, and is an official holiday in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Mauritius,  Guyana, Trinidad, Suriname, Malaysia ,Singapore and Fiji! Diwali is one of my favorite times of the year – wearing traditional dress, fireworks, food, friends and family- the perfect holiday!

We’re so excited about Diwali that we wanted to share some of our favorite pieces to make any night during this festival light up!

Manifest Design
Take festive statement earrings to the next level with Manreet’s gold ribbon hoop earrings. Those jhumkas will have no choice but to share the spotlight with these beauties. They have it all: size, lightweight, and that glimmer that can be seen from across the room: an abstract beauty that everyone will be drawn to as much as the fireworks!

 

tAnirika by Suhaag Garden
For the bold and the colorful, tAnirika creates couture floral jewelry. For the lady who wants to give an ode to handmade tradition and nature (flowers are live!) and stand out effortlessly just as a rose does– divine, elegant, and blooming at your festivities!

Amrapali
Easiest way to outshine the fireworks: Manish Arora for Amrapali!
They’ve taken jhumkas to a whole other level – and you can take the party to a whole other level as well with this sweet ear candy!

Devam Jewelry
You can never go wrong with wearing the classic bangle, the meenakari is done with perfection, as Devam craftmanship and design is among the best in the globe – keeping you bright and beautiful with these Polki diamonds shimmering as you take on the night, lights and party!

Suhani Pittie
For the fierce and floral win! In all types of love with her floral maangtikka, which will sit beautifully at the crown of your forehead, subtly keeping a floral theme for your Diwali festivities!
