Shops that rock ~ Om Narayana Pearls, India…

Om Narayana Pearls, Thirumalaikodi, India...

Om Narayana Pearls, Thirumalaikodi, India…

I know, I know…I’m at the Sripuram Ashram visiting lovely Amma…what more do I need? Well…it is hard to resist when you have a real cutie of a jewellery shop right outside the Ashram front gates.

Om Narayana Pearls is just that shop. It is located at  No. 1/556-C (outside Main Gate entrance), Sripuram Golden Temple, Thirumalaikodi, Vellore-55, Tamil Nadu, India. This is a shop that definitely should not be missed. It has the most beautiful reasonably priced pearls that will tantalise and delight you. The pearls can be bought in a string or be made into whatever design you desire. I had a special Ganesha pendant attached to a string of pale pink pearls. Each time I have visited the Ashram I have bought lovely jewellery for family and friends.

So when next at the Sripuram Ashram check out Om Narayana Pearls ’cause pearls are a girls best friend…
