Gold-Laden Brides in India Defy Metal's Slump

Nov. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Relatives of newlywed Amrita Mannil talk about the fondness for gold in Indian tradition and society. At her wedding in Kozhikode, in south-western India, the 25-year-old bride wore about 800 grams (1.8 pounds) of gold. Her jewelry is typical and represents the cultural and social affinity Indians have had toward the precious metal for centuries, making the country the world’s largest consumer last year.
