Jaipur has been long-known as a treasure trove for spectacular gemstones in a myriad colours. It’s here that many of the world’s gems are cut or set for jewellers across the world. For jewellery designers – both Indian and global – the exceptional craftsmanship of Indian jewellery is second to none. Here’s our pick of a few leading jewellery labels that call the Pink City home.
One of India’s foremost jewellery labels, their design aesthetic is rooted in tradition, especially of the tribal kind, but executed in a contemporary language. Jewellery, both fine and of the affordable luxury variety, are fashioned out of gold and silver using both precious and semi-precious stones. Their website features a red-carpet’s worth of Bollywood stars who’ve worn their creations.
You’ve probably read the name Munnu Kasliwal in connection with exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the V&A, or as a jeweller to both Hollywood celebrities and Indian maharajas. This is the family business he was a part of and where the 9th generation of the Kasliwal clan continues to create wearable and collectible art. On a visit you can see artisans at work and be shown the pieces that have thus far only met the eyes of serious collectors.
