During Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, families gather to celebrate with lanterns, fireworks, and candles. In India's rural states, Diwali decorations often incorporate tiny slivers of mirror that cast glittering reflections. Perfect for stocking stuffers or party favors, these compact-size mirrors are crafted in that same sparkling spirit. Rajasthani women gather lac, a resin from trees, and mold it like clay into a disk shape. Before the lac hardens, beads and hand-cut mirrors are pressed into its surface.

My friends loved this as a favor at my BD party. I told them that at each place setting was a disk with an image of someone who was compassionate and wise and one of my favorite teachers. They turned the disk over to see a mirror!

Very disappointed in the lack of quality in these mirrors. I would be embarrassed to give any of them to anyone I know. I was hopeful of a nice gift for friends & family, and that won't be possible.
Comments about Set of Eight Rajasthani Sparkling Pocket Mirrors:
I never give a purse, wallet, etc. to anyone without a shinny new penny, silver dollar, something that they will treasure. This delightful pocket mirror is so colorful, unique and made by women in India, who make their living by producing these delightful little treasures. I carry a few of them in my bag, give them to servers, flight attendants, etc. Amazing the smiles and appreciation a little gift can make in another's life! I used to carry small boxes of candy, but, everyone is on a diet! lol This is my go to for decoration luncheon tables, just add one at each place setting, starts the lunch off with everyone talking to each other & comparing the colors and designs of the mirrors, would work great for any gathering, showers, etc. I have purchased four boxes and will order more today!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
