Pavithra Gold Ring

Pavithra Gold Ring or Pavithrakettu Gold Ring is one of the most famous traditional jewellery of Kerala. It is an exclusive gold ornament with a matchless and mythical tradition which is famous among Indian gold jewellery. They are produced by some extended families in the Payyannur village of Kannur district of Kerala, and the origin of this unique wonder is closely related to Payyannur Subramanya Swami Temple.

Pavithra Gold Ring: Myths behind

This holy ring is worn during the rituals of pithru bali, or the prayer for the dead ancestors of the person. This ring was traditionally made of Dharba grass. The temple used to insist on wearing grass rings while performing holy rites. However, modern Pavithra ring is made of gold. The shape of the ring is unique and it looks like a knot. Silver is also used for making the ring. It is worn on the right ring finger while performing poojas for the dead ancestors. And it also has a strict rule that the ring should not fall down in the soil while performing the holy rites.

It is believed that wearing this holy ring is good for both material well-being and spiritual elevation. The literal meaning of the word Pavithra is pure and holy. There are three lines on each side of the pavithra knot and seven buds on each line. The three lines on the Pavithra gold ring do represent the three Nadis namely Ida Nadi, Pingala Nadi, and Sushumna Nadi. The knot at the centre by joining the above three lines indicates the glands in our body. These seven buds stand for Seven Rishis (Ascetics) of the cosmos Mareechi, Vasishta, Anginas, Athri, Pulasthian, Pulahan, and Krathu. The three knobs just on the pavithra knot are the Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva. The unique flattened knob adjacent to the pavithra knot at the beginning of the middle line is the planet Sun and a similar one at the end of the same line is the planet Moon. This South Indian gold jewellery is generally manufactured in 22 Kt Gold.
