Rajasthani jewellery with British designs

A new Rajasthani jewellery art form that is gaining popularity in India and abroad is inspired by Victorian designs. Called Sozo, this involves the blending of traditional Rajasthani jewellery art Thewa.

Thewa, which is over 350-years-old, is an art form that fuses 23-carat gold with multi-coloured glass. A Thewa piece could take up to a month to complete. The motifs used reflect the culture and heritage of Rajasthan.

Minakari is another traditional type of jewellery where intricate and colourful enamel work is done on gold.
