One piece of expensive jewellery better than several of junk: Sonam

Indo Asian News Service

New Delhi, Feb 12 (IANS) Actress Sonam Kapoor feels it is better to invest in one traditional ornament rather than buying several pieces of junk jewellery.

The 27-year-old was here Tuesday to announce the launch of the first Delhi edition of the India International Jewellery Week by the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC).

The event, which earlier took place in Mumbai -- the country's business capital, will be held here April 4-5.

"I wear a lot of real jewellery. I think instead of buying copious amount of junk jewellery, it is better to have one real piece of it," Sonam, who is the brand ambassador of GJEPC said.

Sonam feels that diamonds are said to be women's best friend because "they shine, are beautiful and there is something very attractive in them".

The event also announced the collaboration of GJEPC with the Indian Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO) to organise the first Indian Gem and Jewellery Fair, which will take place here April 6-9.
