THE WEDDING COLLECTION
No bridal outfit would be complete without ornate jewellery from P.C. Chandra Jewellers, and when it comes to Indian bridal jewellery the obvious choice is gold. In India, marriage and jewellery are inseparably interlinked. Jewellery has many connotations, both aesthetic and ritual. The wearing of jewellery is supposed to endow the women with qualities of power and authority, as well as great beauty.
Gold has traditionally symbolized wealth and prosperity within Indian culture, holding special significance in celebrations such as weddings and births. Often presented as a gift or tangible form of investment, this precious metal features heavily in most Indian weddings. Ornaments such as the mangalasutra, bindi, ear rings, bangles, nose rings and rings are presently worn by brides almost all over the country. Some of the important traditional ornaments like armlets, waste bands etc are not in vogue today and are not worn in all areas.
The special jewellery collection that is on offer in P. C. Chandra showrooms is a mixture of both contemporary and traditional jewellery. The wide array of jewellery made according to the tastes and preferences of Bengal consists of bracelets, bangles, rings, necklaces, chains, ear-rings, armlets and various other types of exquisite pieces of scintillating jewellery. Their creations are an expression of the wonderful designs and talents of India.
P.C.Chandra Jewellery-Sets consisting of rings, ear-rings and necklaces are ideal for wedding purposes and a number of specially designed wedding-sets are available here. The wedding collection has a wide range of designs and each design is unique and one of a kind . Additional coordinated churis, balas and churs (kangan) are also available in various designs here. Exclusively carved bangles with meena and filigree work available here are a real treat to watch. The churis, bangles, balas and kangans are a speciality of this showroom's collections. The collection also includes "mangalsutras" and earrings made by in-house craftsmen.
There is a wide range of jewellery for men like chains, wristlets, studs, tie-pins, tie-tags and that is available in a variety of designs here. There is something for everyone and hence this store serves as a one-stop shop for all jewellery needs of a family.
