A Jewelled Splendour: The Tradition of Indian Jewellery
A Jewelled Splendour: The Tradition of Indian Jewellery
Description

From the Jacket

For centuries the fabled wealth of India, her gold and gems, brought to her land both merchants and invaders. The tradition of legendary riches went back to antiquity: 5000 years ago, Indian goldsmiths and lapidaries worked in an astonishing variety of materials and techniques; for 3000 years, India was the only known source of diamonds.

This book in five chapters is a look at that tradition, its range, its variety, its best-known techniques, its manifestations and significance. Form a brief historical overview to an account of contemporary jewellery, from descriptions of courtly jewellery to those worn by rural and tribal peoples, the book is a glimpse of Indian jewellery in its totality.

Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs from a number of sources, including museum pieces, this book encapsulates one of the greatest of Indian achievement.

Eternal India Series

The cultural expression of India is as varied in style as it is in form and this is due partly to the size of the land, its myriad religions, races, beliefs, customs and its many layered history.

The series combines pieces of this splendid mosaic with an eye on the apparent as well as the hidden nuances; on tradition and continuity as well as the winds of change.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
