Some highly observant people have asked me why I wear my old-fashioned, gold watch all the time.
It was my Late Didima’s (Maternal grandma) watch and she wore it all the time. Boy, did it look great on her! I have other watches too, more ‘fashionable’ ones but her watch has the timeless uniqueness that none of the prada, gucci, tommy watches can match. Just like my Didima. Most importantly, I wear it because it gives me a sense of comfort that she’s always watching over me & I’m not alone.
The necklace is another piece that I inherited from her and I wear it with all my sarees. I never forget to wear it for any family wedding. I wear this necklace because my Didima was a beautiful and fabulous lady and I hope to be a tiny reflection of her some day.
These pieces of jewelry have been through my many ups and downs but have still remained the same timeless beauties, giving me a sense of stability and security just like my Didima did.
