Diwali with Astley Clarke
Today, millions of people around the world come together to celebrate, Diwali - the festival of lights that celebrates good over evil, light over darkness. Jewellery has been long-associated with the shimmer and shine of this festival; ensuring a year of good luck by investing in gold in every form.
AC’s very own Brand Marketing & Communications Manager, Radhika tells us more about what Diwali means to her and how she’d style her favourite AC jewels.
ASTLEY CLARKE: What does Diwali mean to you?
RADHIKA: Growing up in England always meant that I was far removed from my culture. Festivals like Diwali, keep me closer and connected to my roots. It’s a very special time for us as a community.
ASTLEY CLARKE: Your favourite moments during this festival?
RADHIKA: Diwali is a sensory overload - the bright lights, explosion of colour, sound of laughter, nostalgic smells, mouth-watering foods. Being surrounded by family is the best part.
ASTLEY CLARKE: How will you be styling your AC jewellery this Diwali?
RADHIKA: I absolutely love mixing traditional Indian wear with contemporary gold jewellery. Layering our beloved AC gold and diamond ICON lockets on top of the colours and prints of festive Indian wear.
