The sales of gold watches are on the increase in India as shoppers pick up gifts for the forthcoming Diwali festival.

Sales of jewellery, electronic goods and coins have been performing well this year, the Times of India reported.

Earrings were particularly popular with shoppers, as people looked for more modern, lightweight products rather than heavier, antiquated designs.

Diamond rings have also seen a surge in the number of consumers looking to purchase them, with one store reporting sales of 200 items in one day.
