Rajasthani Jewellery


The Silver and Art Palace is a veritable treasure-house for anyone looking for the most exclusive Rajasthani jewellery.

Jewellery occupies a prominent place in every woman’s mind. There is an ornament for practically every visible part of the anatomy—the head, forehead, ears, nose…

Every State has its own special style of crafting and these styles have been adapted by the goldsmiths of that region.

Jaipur has been one of the traditional centres for a variety of jewellery, precious gems and semi-precious stones, for as long as one can remember. Lacquer enameled work combined with carving on gold and silver, called minakari, is a speciality here. So is the art of kundan, which combines enameling with diamonds (or any other precious stone) encrusted on gold.

It is not surprising then, that one can find some excellent outlets for jewellery in Jaipur. The silver and Art Palace, situated on the road to the older Kacchwaha Rajput capital—Amber, is probably one outlet which can boast of unparalleled attention from foreign tourists and buyers visiting India.

A veritable treasure-house, Silver and Art Palace is the place for tourists who are looking for kundan and minakari jewellery in traditional and contemporary designs. Some of the best craftsmen in this art are employed here and each piece of jewellery is stringently scrutinized with regard to its purity of metals and gems and the quality of its craftsmanship.

The same care that goes into the jewellery is seen in the selection of a very exclusive range of precious gems and an equally bewitching range of semi-precious stones. It is not surprising then, that Silver and Art Palace, which was established in 1974 by Mr. Navrattan Lal Agrawal and Mr. Kishan Lal Agrawal, has been winning the ‘Award for the Highest Sale of Gems and Jewellery to Foreign Tourists in India’ for nine years running, since 1985.

Shopping for jewellery or for that matter, even trying on a kundan necklace, appeals to every woman. It not only fulfills her love of adornment but also confers on her the thrills of being able to enjoy her purchases.
