    Shop Antique Indian Temple Jewellery – Mandira Collection

    Paksha’s Mandira collection is inspired by the rich heritage of South Indian temple architecture and the divine pantheon of Indian gods and goddesses. The collection's name, Mandira, derives from the Hindi word meaning ‘mandir’ or ‘temple’ in English. Our temple jewellery has unique traditional motifs with images of gods and goddesses, animals, and other elements that hold special meaning in Hindu mythology and culture.

    One of the most common symbols in our temple jewellery collection is the depiction of various gods and goddesses from Hindu mythology. For instance, Goddess Lakshmi is often shown holding a lotus flower, Lord Krishna is mainly seen with Goddess Radha and Lord Ganesh is depicted with an elephant's head. These divine representations in antique jewellery are believed to bring you good luck and protection. You can also witness the carvings of various birds and animals on our South-Indian jewellery, like the peacock which represents beauty and grace, and the elephant, which symbolizes strength and wisdom. Other symbols, like the Lotus floral motifs, signify purity and enlightenment, whereas the geometric motifs and patterns represent unity, balance, and stability. Understanding the symbolism behind our designs can deepen your appreciation for our traditional jewellery pieces and help you know how our skilled artisans channel their expertise to breathe life into a myriad of unique jewellery concepts.

    We are showcasing below a variety of unique concepts like bridal temple jewellery, Jadau temple jewellery, temple jewellery with moissanite stones or American diamond temple jewellery and ensure that every individual finds a piece that resonates with their style and reverence for tradition.
