    Goldpearl,

    Thank you so much for sharing your amazing collection of jewelry! So much beauty and extraordinary workmanship in all the pieces and the earrings are delightful with all the dangles.

    What kinds of jewelry do you choose for every day wear?

    Thank you very much Charlotta and pattye! In India we have a lot of intricate jewellery, big big pieces, which are mostly statement pieces that go especially well with our ethnic wear like silk saree. For any function, women come adorned in all these heavy necklaces and earrings!

    A lot of my jewellery are in bank vault as it is not very safe to have too many heavy pieces at home. When I get to the bank sometime past lockdown, I will take and share pics. In a few days I will try and take some more pics of my 22k gold jewellery that I have here at home with me.

    For daily wear I have simpler designs. As you have seen, some of them are in the other thread.

    What a wonderful collection. I feel like I want to see neck shots to see how the necklaces lay and how long or short they are.

    Wow! I second the request for neck shots, as well as closeups of the more intricate pieces.

    Ok neck shots and close ups of two temple necklaces. One shows a design closer to neck and the other one a bit longer, just to give you an idea 2EFD6F11-513F-479C-B147-8AAB1E745317.jpg

    Thank you pattye and BWeaves! Here is a video I found on YouTube about the manufacturing process of nakhas / nakshi / nakashi temple jewellery as it is variously called. Note that I have no affiliation with the vendor, not recommending them or anything, and that I am sharing the video only to show the process of creation. I think watching the video will help us appreciate the intricate process and hard work involved in these handcrafted pieces.

    One highlight from the video - to make a single pendant, the artisan has to make over 100,000 precise taps on the gold with his tool, even one of which in the wrong spot could ruin the whole pendant.

    GoldPearl, I am just blown away, and crazy in love with these pieces, real works of museum quality art ... so glad you decided to share with us! I had a childhood correspondence friend in India, many years ago. The elephants are so delightful to me . Last year, a young Indian American gem dealer friend invited us to a private visit to his home; we had a wonderful visit, playing with gem bead strands, and delicious Indian street food snacks his lovely mother made for us ... so much fun. Thank you again for sharing!
