Hey BellaNaijarians,

Did you know that Indian housewives hold about 11% of the world’s gold? That’s more than the reserves of the USA, IMF, Germany and Switzerland put together.

    Question is, why do they hold so much gold?

      lol Bukie, its their custom for the women to have a lot of jewelry from their wedding chain to every other jewelry they wear. I think its a sign of how rich or respected the lady’s family or in laws are cos they give a lot of it to the woman on her wedding day both from her family and her in laws. It gives the men a sense of pride too seeing their wives wear their jewelries, they don’t joke with it o.

    It is like their own “Personal” bride price if I can call it that. It is given to them I think by the their mother in law and the bride’s mum. I can’t even remember how my friend explained it to me, That’s why the most expensive ones are kept in a safe deposit box.
