PhulaPhalaPaathi Hansuli

Digantaratna Jhalor Necklace

This festoon necklace has a distinctly western sensibility to it but is made quite in the Indian tradition of ‘nabaratna’ goyna. All nine gems are fitted in the tiny collets forming the flowers and ga...

Distinctly Rajasthani in its form and detailing, this one-of-a-kind necklace is nonetheless as far away from those chunky 'aad' designs as, say, a hansuli is from a pati har.
