People dealing with yellow metal (gold) are Soni.
Also known as Sonar or Sunar derived from the Sanskrit word "Swarnkar", their community is primarily Hindu in its origin.
Their ancestors were the original designers and manufacturers of gold and silver jewellery.
Every new generation is blessed with heredity of designing gold and silver jewellery for many years.
Jewellery or ornament, a decorative item is worn for personal adornment in special occasions and in day to day life too. Ornaments like brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets etc are bended by the Sonis.
Variety of jewellery from Gold, Silver and Platinum is richly designed and inlaid with precious stone, like diamond, emerald etc are offered to consumers by Soni's.
There is a significance of wearing certain type of jewellery.
For instance, a married woman will wear a Mangalsutra (Special kind of gold necklace) in the Indian culture and a wedding ring is worn by married couple in the western culture.
Also, wealthier Soni members of the community who are also involved in pawn broking and money lending (person providing loan against gold and silver) are popularly known as "Mahajan".
The Soni community speaks various dialects of Gujarati, Hindi and other regional languages, depending on location they reside.
Over the period of time, many other (Non-Soni) people got involved in jewellery manufacturing and selling trade and today they are known as jewellers.
