There will be many challenges along the way but one has to nurture the strengths and embrace life as it comes,” she said. Adding that she carefully chooses her jewelry and goes for only genuine gemstones, she said, “It’s important that we make the right choices about gemstones as they have astrological effects. Today’s workshop was helpful in gaining insights into the world of gemstones.”
The workshop on Gemology was conducted by Soli Sethi, Chandigarh Chapter Head of Gemmology (Forum of Indian Gemologists for Scientific Studies) and Managing Director of Vishhwas Gemstones. He highlighted the benefits of wearing gemstones and how they can impact us in different spheres of life. He said, “Since today’s woman has made progress and has almost achieved equality in terms of narrowing the existing wage gap, she is independent and self reliant. She is inclined to gain more knowledge about purchasing the right kind of gemstones. This is another aspect of how women are empowering themselves and taking their own decisions towards the betterment of theirs and their family’s lives.”
The Workshop covered aspects like how to identify the traits of a genuine gemstone and what factors should be kept in mind while purchasing the gemstones. The process of formation of gemstones and their refinement was also discussed.
