Golap Bagh Ananta : A rose garden for the nabobs guarded by a pair of smiling tigers. Beautifully hand-chased three times over in pure 22K gold, this stunning bala, originally designed as an armlet (hence, Ananta), is not only a revered classic but also an assured show-stopper.
Mayurpur Choor: This elaborate choor was created on the express wish of an elegant, enlightened client with very high taste, to match her Mayurpur necklace. We'd showcased Ms.Madhuja Dey's eponymous tayra,late January,on Facebook and told you then that we would share with you certain jewels that had been customized for her. Well, this is one of those. Everything is hand-chased and, as before, the single-sheet naksha is perforated and given an antique copper finish. Fully handcrafted in 22K…
Unfinished Mayurpur Bala. We're in the process of redoing the Mayurpur Bala. This edition has gone through several crucial changes including a new draft of the primary drawing so that the peacocks, so essential to the design, are more prominent and profuse, and the flora of the garden of love is better articulated. We do that from time to time : reassess our original creations to further improve them and enhance their beauty by going back to the drawing board.
Gajredar Pushpa Bala : Innovations Stolen from the achieves of Victoria and Albert Museum this is actually a gajredar silver anklet from Maharashtra, dating from the early twentieth century. True, we have copied the design in too, but its metamorphosis into a rich magnificent 22k gold hand-chased, hand engraved bala, is entirely our own effort. A revival not a rewriting of history.
Shringar Kangans : Love and beauty must be enjoyed, never weighed. Eulogized, romanticized and desired through the ages, the classic gold kangan has forever ornamented the graceful hands of genteel Indian ladies without concession, without competition. It epitomizes the role of gold aabhushan in the art of romance. Legend, from top to bottom: Aaina mattar kara; polish-ball half pacheli; mina pradip kankan; jaipuri thokai kankan; teen-thak katai ball pacheli.
A tiny curio shop in Darjeeling ; What we saw there, what we found, what we experienced is what's been replicated in this exquisite, ethereal guinea gold naksha bala that took us almost five months to complete and perfect. In that, this bala, painstakingly hand-wrought like Darjeeling itself, becomes the town. It is Darjeeling.
Golap Phul Pata Choor: You've seen the Golap Bagh Ananta and you've also seen the Gulbahar Hansuli. Almost in the same genre but with a painstakingly perforated finish is this glorious naksha rose vine choor that comes with a mandatory hinge because of its generous width. Indeed, an ornament of rare elegance and astonishing strength, much like our feminity. Rendered in pure 22K gold with an antique copper polish.
