I am planning to buy gold earrings for my daughter. The ritual of buying metal on Dhanteras has been followed by my family for a long time now and I continue keeping up with the tradition.


Sunanda Pushkar Tharoor, Entrepreneur
Dhanteras is an auspicious occasion and I usually try to buy something new on this day but since I am travelling to Bhutan this year, I have bought a pair of Kerala earrings a week in advance to mark the occasion.

Ramneek Pantal, Emcee
It's one day when my husband gives me his credit card and shop guilt-free, since it's an auspicious occasion. I plan to make the most of it by buying a pair of earrings or a gold neckpiece.

Reynu Taandon, Fashion Designer
Like every year, I plan to go with my husband to buy a silver Ganesha, and some gold and silver coins for their symbolism. The idea is to shop together to bring home some love, prosperity and good luck.

Tanisha Mohan, Socialite
I will be buy a silver and gold diya that we will light during the special Lakshmi Puja in the evening. I might place the order a few days ago, but I will definitely pick the diyas on Dhanteras for its significance.

Amanpreet Wahi, Model
I plan to buy a pair of earrings that I can pass on to my daughter in the future. I know that jewellers make a lot of money during this time, but as long as I get want I want that too at a decent price, I am happy.
