Acclaimed Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that this went well with growing interest in yoga, meditation and spirituality. Most were reportedly choosing 22 karat gold and the motifs included ancient India influenced handcrafted snakes, Om, scrolls, etc., involving various jewelry traditions of India. One American jeweler had even launched “Kali Ma” collection focusing on Indian designs. Some were using fusion of both traditional and contemporary designs.
