“Srikantho Mathulo Yasya, Jananee Sarva Mangalaa,
Janakaha Sankaro Devaha,Tam Vande’ Kunjaraananam”
Meaning of Sloka: The lord, for whom Lord Vishnu is the Uncle, whose mother is the divine auspicious one, Parvati and whose father is Lord Shiva. I offer salutations to Sri Ganesha, the Omkara.
Orra has 35 stores across the country and I visited the Hughes road store, being the biggest in Mumbai. Jewellery is well displayed with each collection highlighted in individual showcases. What caught my attention the most is the quality of manufacturing and the affordability in price points.
ORRA’s Spiritual collectionThe Spiritual collection is beautifully displayed with each piece speaking a story in itself. Each pendant comes with an informative pothi (book) with details out the inspiration, information and sacred chants relevant to each jewel that is painstakingly crafted.
I loved how the bust and legs with raised knees envelope the Rudraksha. Over this looms the trunk that holds the modak and face of Lord Ganesha. The trident of Shiva forms a halo around the head. While Ganesha holds a lotus bud in his right hand, the digit of the moon, common attribute of both the Gods, is on the other side.
This is how Jnaneshvara pays his respect to Lord Ganesha, whom he conceives as the very source and embodiment of highest knowledge, the visible manifestation of the sacred Omkara. The three letters A, U & M, which form Omkara, respectively imitate the legs, the abdomen and the head of Ganesha.
Abhishek Sonawane, SM quotes, ”spiritual collection has been very well received by the customers and we have sold many pieces.”
Among the array of collections, what also caught my eye is the ORRA Crown Star(OCS). The ORRA Crown Star is a design patented by them, it’s a 73 faceted diamond v/s regular 57 facets. When viewed under the Brilliancescope placed in their store, one could differentiate between a commonly used 57 faceted diamond and a 73-facet ORRA Crown Star.
