Vishu, the traditional Malayali spring festival, is a time-honoured celebration of new beginnings and fresh aspirations, observed with great enthusiasm in Kerala and parts of Tamil Nadu. This revered occasion marks the advent of the New Year of the Malayalam calendar.
At the heart of this much-anticipated festival lies the spirit of generosity and the exchange of gifts among loved ones. And what better way to express your emotions than with the gift of platinum jewellery? A rare and precious metal with origins in the stars, platinum is renowned for its strength and resistance to daily wear and tear, retaining its sheen and shape over time.
For those seeking the perfect gift option on Vishu, platinum jewellery is a fitting choice, with its 95% purity. A symbol of enduring love, platinum jewellery, whether a pendant, ring, or bracelet, is sure to leave an indelible impression on your cherished ones, a testament to the depth of one’s affection.
Commenting on this auspicious occasion, Vaishali Banerjee, Managing Director, Platinum Guild International-India said, “The auspicious occasion of Vishu holds great significance in Kerala as it marks the beginning of a New Year, heralding the arrival of good fortune and prosperity. To celebrate this special occasion, consumers seek unique purchases to mark the festivities and platinum jewellery perfectly reflects these emotions and values, making it a preferred choice. As Vishu approaches, we expect a surge in the demand for platinum jewellery, indicating its everlasting charm and timeless appeal. We extend our greetings to everyone for a delightful Vishu and wish for a year filled with prosperity and achievement”
