Gold has been very subjective in terms of whether it’s fashionable or ostentatious. Thought it’s something that’s remarkably advertised, Jinson Abraham wanted to capture its charm of being an heirloom.
There are many brides who either love wearing gold and or have become very averse to it. For many years, it’s still considered the most precious metal, not only because of its value but also how the yesteryear generations preserved it. It’s considered as the promise of prosperity. Though there is a beauty in this metal, many brides also feel they are forced to wear it.
