For the rich and famous, a gift can be so extravagant that it is considered crazy by most of us. Celebrities in Bollywood want to live the good life and whilst they will lavish gifts on their partner or spouse, some of the most ridiculously expensive gifts listed here have been given to close friends and other family members. Whilst these may be outrageous presents, they may offer an idea of the gifts we would like to give to our loved ones as a sign of appreciation and love.
When it comes to a Bollywood wedding, no cost is spared for the right look, which includes some fabulous jewelry. Actress Asin Thottumkal married Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma twice in 2016, with a Christian and a Hindu wedding ceremony. The highlight of her Hindi ensemble was a beautiful polki necklace adorned with glistening red colored stones perfectly balanced with a matha patti decorated with a stunning red emerald.
Unique gifts of jewelry make for the perfect gift for anyone, even if they are not a Bollywood star. A rose is a symbol of romantic love and a silver-dipped rose makes the gift all the more special as it will last a lifetime. Silver is also symbolic of the 25th wedding anniversary, a milestone anniversary that is usually celebrated with a large family party.
