India is celebrating Dhanteras today.
The name of the festival is an amalgamation of two words Dhan (wealth) and Teras (thirteenth).
Each year, the festival is observed on the thirteenth lunar day of Krishna Paksha.
What is the best way to celebrate the festival of wealth? Buying gold jewellery and other precious metals! Hindus believe that purchasing gold, silver, or precious stones will attract good luck and prosperity as these bring the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kuber.
Traditionally, Hindus purchase gold, silver, or precious stones to attract blessings.
However, all gems bring different energies into your life and depending upon your moon sign, can have various effects. Buying jewellery as per your moon sign can amplify beneficial effects.
Aries (March 21 To April 19)
Although this sign is ruled by the tempestuous and volatile planet of Mars, Aries is also the exaltation of the Sun. So natives under this sign should invest in gold jewellery. Avoid buying items made from iron or leather.

Jewellery Designs That Can Attract Good Fortune
In an interview with ET Panache Digital, Prerna Khurana, the director of the Khurana Jewellery House shared some jewellery designs that can add more positive vibes in your life:
- Elephant-themed jewellery embodies powerful symbols of strength, wisdom, and good fortune across diverse cultures.
