OverviewThe wedding season is in full swing! One of the most auspicious days is a few days away, namely Akshaya Tritiya. The reason why it is considered favourable is that it is said to be the day of hope, for a fresh new start. People may decide to purchase a new car or invest in property or perhaps in gold bonds. Akshaya Tritiya is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Vishnu in His incarnation as Lord Parshuram and gold is closely linked with His spouse, the Goddess of Wealth, namely Goddess Lakshmi. So there is the enduring faith and conviction that benefits will abound in the coming years from the purchase of or investment in gold, by ushering it into your home on Akshaya Tritiya. While purchasing some form of physical gold is the norm, it need not be an entire jewelry set. It could be a 100g gold coin or a pair of gold bangles. The belief is that, in the years ahead, that gold would be sold at a price more than the cost at the time of purchase. Even diamond and platinum jewellery are much sought after.
Akshaya Tritiya this year is on 7th May 2019. There are tons of special discount offers on the purchase and making charges of jewellery. Let's have a look at some of these offers –
