Hey Belles! Hope you are doing great.
Being an Indian woman, I have love ethnic wear as much as western wear. Sadly due to time constraints, I don’t wear them on regular basis. I avoid it for workwear and travelling as I love to accessorise and apply makeup for the exact Indian look, which you know, is time intensive.
Do you remember my article on Holi? With the aid of colourful earring and necklaces, I had given an idea how you could accessorise a plain white kurta. I was wearing owl terracotta necklace set with jeans and kurta by an online shop, Panigha India. That particular piece was loved by many of my readers and they thought it’s from Chumbak. Few readers also assumed it as expensive one. What if I told you that set cost me Rs. 175 only. Surprised anyone ?
Few days after I uploaded this post, Panigha India contacted me and asked me to send a few of pictures me wearing that jewellery set. They wanted to upload the pictures in a happy customer album on their Facebook page. Afterwards, we spoke about the collaboration and best part was that they did not force their preferences on me. They asked me to choose the ones which I would prefer. I emailed them a vague idea of my like and the outfit I want to wear for the post. They sent me this beautiful necklace set, which I simply adore.
I am totally impressed with their attitude and dedication towards their craft. Well, this was about Panigha India. Let’s talk about their product range.
Panigha India is a Kolkata based online store for handmade products from various part of India. They have a diverse range of handcrafted jewellery, bags, dupattas, clutches, etc. The brand was established in 2016 and in a very short span they have created their own niche in the handmade market. Their products are authentic and are available at a very reasonable price.
Coin jewelries are inspired by rich history of coins. Each piece in collection imitate the mystery, adventure and complication of lost treasure and ancient progress. Coins have been an integral part of human civilisation. We started making coins since the discovery of metals. India was one of the countries were coins were made independently. Coins which were used as currency are no longer just a currency. and we have moved to a world were we love it in our jewelry.
The origin of Coin Jewelery
Coin cutting began in 16th century. Craftsmen used to pierce and cut coins to thrill their lovers. After few years, a thoughtful craftsmanship and new style of developing these coin jewellery were developed. As soon as these techniques were developed, coins were used to make rings, necklace and earrings.
In Indian history, the origin of coin jewellery was in the south. We also know these jewellery as temple jewellery. Most of the early developments of this traditional form of jewellery were Tamil Nadu. Tamil Nadu has been culturally rich there are lots of art forms which was originated from Tamil Nadu.
Since childhood, I am a big fan of temple jewellery. My love for coin jewellery has increased since I moved to Bangalore. I am eagerly waiting for the day when I will be able to afford a pure gold temple jewellery set on my own. Till that time, I cannot wait not to wear a coin jewellery. Thank you Panigh India for giving me this customised silver coin jewellery.
Silver Coin Jewellery for Modern Women
I know how much we Indians love buying gold and gold jewellery. But truly, we are not able to use them on a daily basis, especially, when it comes to working women. We cannot wear those heavy jewellery and go to work. I am so glad that these coin jewellery are made in silver with a touch and feel of both traditional and modern look. It is easy to carry and gives a completely ravishing look over others. We have been wearing coin jewellery with out traditional attires. We can wear these silver jewellery with any kind of outfit, be it traditional, Indo western or western.
There are coin jewellery with multiple patterns like, original coin jewellery, flowers, ancient prints etc. Any style of silver coin jewellery matches perfectly for day wear. Just remember one thing while pairing these jewellery with your outfit, be as creative as you can. It should not be too chunky or traditional. These coin jewellery gives a hint of bohemian appeal as well.
If you are looking for some really unseen handmade coin jewellery. I highly recommend to explore Panigha India’s collection. I am sure you would look amazing wearing them and make a style statement.
