Jaipur in Rajasthan, India has long been one of the largest gemstone hubs of the world. Among the reasons for this is its proud history of having the best stone-cutters and goldsmiths in the world. Even in recent times, stones cut in most other places in the world were inferior to those from Jaipur, but it seems technology has evened things out.
Nevertheless there is a big daily gemstone market in Jaipur, and various dealers, goldsmiths and cutters gathered there. Jay has been travelling to Jaipur for many years now, and Indian Treasures is a page dedicated to the various unique pieces she has collected and stored from Jaipur through the years. They are not quite our designs, but rather reflect Jay’s taste and abundant contacts across the gemstone trade. We will be expanding this page as Jay unearths more hidden treasures from her safe in the city, or as we collect more on our travels.
So if you see something you are interested in please feel free to contact us, and we can begin the process of getting the piece to you safely.
