The sparkling diamonds
cast in yellow gold
hold my fascination
for years long .
Designed with great care
with the four C’s prominent
the diamonds remain a treasure.
Not many could afford the lovely stones
but there is nothing wrong in admiring
while the whole world revels on it
with the young desiring to have a ring
that is worn during the weddings
give the twinkling stone a sentimental value.
Solemnizing the wedding with the beautiful ring
has become the custom of the west
while in the Occident or in the east
diamonds have a superior sway
as ear studs, nose rings and bracelets
and necklaces with startling pendents
make the bride’s jewellery collection
Mainly the Indians attach great significance
as ornaments are made of gold and diamonds
marking the status of the families
that get into alliance as most marriages
go by the arrangement of the parents
Still the weddings that take place in India
do get organised by the seniors
while the girl and the boy gracefully
get into the wedlock as per the wishes of elders
succeed in carrying the yoke with understanding.
Lately there is a significant rise in love marriages
with the proportionate break and divorce
which were once uncommon and unheard of in Indian culture.
The attractive diamonds has brought us to the culture
confirming its importance and richness in stature.
