Jan 15, 2010

This is only a doll wearing a green saree- not only in color green but a true green clothing- an eco friendly saree. It is a saree made from organic cotton. Organic cotton is one of the many natural fiber that is eco friendly too. You might think that cotton is also natural then why only organic cotton is eco friendly? This is because while growing cotton, pesticides are used and while processing the fiber for making fabric, many other chemicals are used. They all contribute in making cotton non eco friendly. There are many other eco friendly fibers like bamboo, hemp, jute etc. that are used these days for making a variety of clothes. Many celebrity fashion designers too are using these green clothing for introducing their green designer lines. So, just like the doll above, now you can also wear an organic clothing!

When you wear green clothing, you not only make our planet a more safer place to live in but you also make yourself more healthier. Organic clothing is always skin friendly and keep you away from allergies, rashes and other skin problems. Many of these eco friendly fabrics have other qualities too. Some of them are naturally moisture absorbent that make them suitable for summer clothing & outer wear clothing and many others protect you from harmful sun rays- naturally!

Gemstone Jewellery- Can they Bring Luck to You?

Jan 6, 2010
Women, fashion and jewellery can not be separated. Although there are jewelry for men too but it seems that women are the most rightful candidates for wearing them. Women jewellery come in all types of materials- gold, silver, other metals, beads, wood and even clay and stones, coins etc. All women wear jewellery but for different reasons.

  • First and foremost reason for wearing jewelery is that they make the wearer look beautiful.
  • Some women wear them as fashion accessories to bring out the complete beauty of outfits.
  • Some wear due to religious factor or traditional ritual. Most of the married Indian women wear  bangles, necklaces, rings, toe rings etc. to observe cultural obligations
  • Some women, especially young girls, wear them to follow the latest fashions. You can easily spot them wearing a typical bracelet or ring or some other such jewellery just to be with trends.
  • Yet others wear precious jewelery to show off their 'well off social status' ( not a very tasteful reason but yes its a fact!)
  • There is one very cute reason too for wearing jewelery. Women wear jewellery received as gifts from their loved ones (husband, boyfriend, brother, father, friend, mother etc.) just out of emotional attachment to them.
  • And there are some others who wear jewellery for bringing luck to them. These are gemstone jewelry but can they bring luck with them?

Astrologers say that when a person is born, the planets and stars are in a particular position. Their position influences the life of that person by emitting some electromagnetic energy and radiations. These may be good effects, bad effects and mixed effects. There are particular stones of many colors- popularly known as gemstones- that can alter the influences of planets by making them more favorable or by diminishing their ill effects. This is done by rays emitted by the gemstones. They can do wonders regarding luck in love, money, business, etc. in the life of the wearer. However, these gemstones are prescribed based upon the position of the planetary bodies during the birth time of the person. Thus, astrological horoscopes are made for prescribing them to a person.

There are many people who don't believe in this theory. They could not understand the logic behind a small stone affecting big planetary energies. However, there is one fact- something done with faith can really bring amazing results. If you take your medicine with faith, you will definitely recover fast. If a person wears these gemstone jewellery, s/he will be positive about the efforts put in to resolve any issue. This gives a push to take the right moves and thus the gemstones can play a positive role in bringing good fortune (not just by wearing them but by the positive efforts put in by the wearer).

One thing is clear anyway- gemstones are so beautiful that no one can be spared from their charm! Be it ruby, emerald, garnet, or the ever favorite gem of women- the diamond- they all give a charming beauty to the wearer. So, whether you believe in the astrological explanations about good effects of gemstones or not- you can always wear gemstone jewelry for its sheer beauty! And if you do believe in astrologers saying that a gemstone will bring good luck and fortune for you then first know which gemstone has been prescribed as your birth stone.
