Temple Jewellery
 

Temple jewellery is said to have originated in the Chola and Pandya dynasties. In the early years, this kind of jewellery was made out of precious metal donations made to temples in south India, and was meant to be reserved for adorning deities and royals. Temple dancers and devotees started to use replicas of such jewellery in their daily practices, with jewellers drawing inspiration from temple architecture, history and the beauty of deities. Over the course of time, temple jewellery started becoming a piece that evoked religious sentiment and thus, became an essential heirloom in every south Indian bride’s jewellery collection.
 

 It is among the most artful of all jewellery types, and plays an essential role in the cultural heritage of the southern states in India. Embossed with depictions of gods and goddesses from the temples in south India, these simple-yet-artful pieces of work are sculpted from gold and silver, and have been making a comeback to the fashion mise en scène. Available as necklaces, bangles, earrings, rings, chokers and kamarbandhs, the contemporary update to this jewellery style now includes gemstones, diamonds and filigree work as well to accentuate individual pieces and make them look heavier.

The very definition of temple jewellery means that the pieces seek inspiration from deities, temple tops and divine figurines in their most basic form. Goddess Lakshmi and other female deities are the most commonly used motifs by jewellers. In addition to these recurring choices, temple jewellery also includes elements such as leaves, trees, coins, bells, and so on.
