One country that has repeatedly been in news during the recession is India. Well, it had to be being the least affected by the economic hard times. Maybe it’s the good financial planning or special blessings from the many gods that reside here. Just so you know, Indians are known to spare nothing when it comes to pleasing their favorite God. And the one most popular is Lord Ganesha, indeed.
It is a common sight in India to see jewelers making and selling idols of gods made in gold and other precious stones. And now the famous diamond company Orra too joins the bandwagon but with a difference. Orra has given shape to Lord Ganesha a from 512 carat diamond.
This spectacular piece has been put for show in Pune. A very rare piece of jewel, the diamond used to make this idol was found in one of the Orra African factories by a foreigner. Apparently, the traveler was quite taken by the natural resemblance of the diamond to that of the Indian God. This idol is also being celebrated as the biggest Ganesh idol ever made from diamond. No word on pricing yet.
