As Mother’s Day approaches, many of us find ourselves shifting between the joy of remembering our mothers and the pain of no longer having them with us.
Sometimes, it is disorienting to realize that we have reached adulthood without really getting to know our own mother and clinging to the physical artefacts that linked us to our mothers, we remember the warmth of her scolding and the coldness behind her compromised laughter.
Be it a doting housewife in a blush sleeveless shirt or a hard-working professional in a crisp cotton saree or an introverted elder sister managing her work from home and works at home or a teacher that showered us with motherly love – we sometimes fail to understand their love and often forget to reciprocate!
They remain undervalued by us, most of the time.
When we talk about being undervalued, doesn’t it take you to Silver?
It has a plethora of healing properties, but are we even aware?
As a metal, silver has significant health benefits that have been used across cultures for centuries. Silver has a proven track record as a powerful antimicrobial agent fighting infection and aiding in cold and flu prevention, wound healing, and more.
Did you ever appreciate the silver pendant in your jewellery box?
Silver also helps with internal heat regulation and circulation. Many have reported improvements in energy levels and balance in moods after wearing silver, as its natural properties may offset outside electrical disturbances, improve circulation and overall body temperature balance, and help maintain cleanliness and immunity.
Are you looking at your silver finger ring?
Silver has a long history in antibiotics and sterilization, with many women and men wearing silver jewellery to stave off infection, cold/flu symptoms, and any other virus, bacteria, etc.
Yes! That is your underrated pair of silver earrings.
Silver anklets maintain the flow of positive energy in the body. The anklets are also helpful in preventing the inflammation of feet and soles, allowing women to feel energetic and capable of working on their feet. It re-vibrates the lost energy back to the body. Women who work barefoot at home must wear silver anklets.
Your silver anklet never understood why it was left alone one day!
It is said that wearing a silver toe ring on the third toe by unmarried women helps them get rid of at least ease the period pain. It is also said that toe rings may result in acupressure benefits as well. This is because they press some nerves in the feet which are known to help the reproductive system of the woman.
Toe rings are adjustable. Did you try to adjust?
This lustrous, soft white metal is Silver and it is one of the elements that make up the Earth.
Like Motherhood, which is there for ages but we fail to notice it often!
Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
That should remind us of what Shree Gauri Sawant believes in – *Motherhood is a behaviour* and it has nothing to do with the gender of a person. Gauri Sawant is a transgender activist from Mumbai, India.
This Mother’s Day, surprise the women in your life who showered you with motherly love by gifting them a piece of silvery jewellery.
Undervalued metal jewellery for the underappreciated mothers out there!
