Description

For over five thousand years, Indias jewelry craftsmen have drawn upon the rich sources of gold and gems throughout their land. Gold and silver, the quintessential metals of Indian jewelry, are worked in various techniques including granulation, filigree, thewa work (a fused appliqu process), and kundan (an inlay process). In the Museums collection is an Indian necklace (18th19th century) in the form of a circle of uniform gold beads, each pendant attached by a tiny flower, probably representing the flower and berry of the evergreen mulsari. Our stunning necklace adapts the berry-shaped pendants of this original gold piece.
