need to say "I love you". Yours is a love that is eternal, not like the glitter of gold but like the everlasting nature of platinum. We give you a few ways of showing your love that are more precious than just saying the words out loud...
1. Be there, hold hands and hug often.
Doesn’t matter if it’s the smallest celebration or a passing gloomy moment -be there for each other at every step of your life. That one big hug is going to be the most reassuring factor of your relationship, and all of these tiny treasures will add up to the bigger canvas - in the end, that’s all that will matter.
“Our relationship has grown stronger over 18 years of togetherness and there are those little things that we do for each other in our everyday life that adds up to a larger picture. This classy pair of Platinum Love Bands is a gentle reminder of ‘us’ that we were then, now and will be for many more years to come,”
says TV actor Rohit Roy
. His other half, Mansi
, thinks that their Platinum Love Bands are not only pieces of jewellery but also a beautiful reflection of the eternal promise made to her by her husband till death do them part.
2. Surprise. Call unexpectedly.
Nothing beats the joy of doing something good for your partner when they are least expecting it. Call at odd hours, bring flowers, pack home a favourite cheesecake or slip a platinum band in his/ her drink.
“After knowing each other for over 12 years, it was a very special day when I realized I was in love with Tahira and professed it by calling her at 1:48 a.m. Reliving that moment today and celebrating it with platinum reaffirms the strength and stability of our relationship,”
says Ayushman Khurrana
3. Listen to music in sync. Believe in the power of togetherness.
You may not like the same genre, but try listening to music together - it’ll change your perception of things. There’ll be times when everything in life may seem haphazard and chaotic; have faith in each other and trust that all will be well as long as you two are together.
“Purity; the naturally white metal’s inherent quality embodies trust, which is the foundation of our relationship,”
says tennis star Rohan Bopanna.
For his wife, Supriya
, “Exchanging these beautiful platinum emblems of eternal love reinstates my faith that our relationship will grow from strength to strength and like these elegant and classic love bands will last forever.”
4. Spend time with the family. Be an awesome twosome.
Find delight in the smaller joys. Be kind and never once be bitter, no matter how foul a mood you are in. Cherish the minor magic moments like watching TV with a tub of ice cream, eating a good meal or sipping chai
at midnight…revere them.
“Over the nine strong years there have been many days and special moments, but if I had to pick our Platinum Day of Love, it would be the day our son was born. That special moment strengthened the bond of our relationship,”
says celebrity Sonali Behl.
5. Bring out the best in each other.
Use the power of words to stimulate your partner’s innermost qualities. For all you know, there is a famous writer, actor, singer or dancer, waiting for that slight nudge to be discovered. Gift motivational books or write quotes on sticky notes and put them up where your partner can see them. Encourage.
“Diamonds sparkle best when set in platinum, just like two individuals in love bringing out the best in each other and challenge each other to push boundaries,”
. Wife Aishwarya
’s platinum moment was “when we realized our true love for each other and decided to tie the knot”.
6. Make ordinary extra-special.
The whole world doesn’t need to know, but you could do some really small but special things on days that matter a lot to you. Like the time when after months or years of knowing each other, you suddenly discovered your true feelings for each other; or that first time you held hands and walked down the promenade. Celebrate togetherness in your own way.
As in the case of Ram Kapoor: “Platinum for me signifies everlasting love, which needs to be celebrated in the most special way. We still remember the day we discovered our real love for each other and always cherish it in our hearts. And the best way to commemorate it is by exchanging platinum jewellery that will last a lifetime.”
, her platinum necklace is not just a piece of jewellery: “It is symbolic of the extraordinary relationship that I share with my husband and defines who we are.”
7. Forgive and forget.
In the era of fast food and quick divorces, believe in the magic of love and its power to heal even the greatest of wounds. Don’t let differences breed and kill your relationship. Talk and resolve your issues. Be the first one to forgive and forget.
“I believe in everlasting love, and what better way to commemorate your platinum day of love with eternal platinum and seal your love forever?”
says former cricketer Anil Kumble.
8. Give without expecting.
Unconditional kindness will set you free – give love and seek no reward. Play your part and give your 100 per cent to the relationship without playing the blame game.
Cricketer Dinesh Karthik
feels that his wife and squash queen Dipika Pallikal
has brought a lot to their relationship. “Today our love has grown into a union where two have become one. Our resolute bond deserves an expression of love that is as precious as platinum,”
he adds. Dipika too thinks “Platinum Love Bands are the perfect choice for couples to reveal the significant milestones of their heart.”
