Cleopatra Necklace in Turquoise
Inspired by a traditional Indian armband worn with gold embroidered saris and decadent jewelry, we have re-imagined this necklace to befit a queen. Handcrafted from 14kt gold chain links and adorned with triangle turquoise stones, our Cleopatra necklace belongs in the courts of Egyptian antiquity.

ARTISANS AND THEIR CRAFT

Jewelry

Jaipur has been India’s mecca for jewelry since the early 18th century when the world’s finest gems were brought to Jaipur to be cut, polished and set.  In recent years, the jewelers of Jaipur have had to contend with global forces: mass production, mechanization, and fluctuating metal prices.  Despite these obstacles, artisans in this Pink City still craft designs by hand.  Today’s jewelry designers experiment with many designs, stones, and even make jewelry from horn.
