Indian Jewellery
Description
From the Jacket: The romance and glamour of Indian jewellery is unending. Both men and women of the subcontinent deck themselves in jewellery. The earliest records are finds in the Indus Valley and references in the earliest writings that have come down to us. This book, lavishly illustrated in colour, examines in scholarly detail, the jewellery and the ethos in which it was used, down the ages from the earliest examples found in Mohenjodaro. Raw material was obtained from far-off places: gold and silver from Afghanistan, copper from Khetri, green felspar from Hirapur, jade from eastern Turkistan and lapis lazuli from Khorasan.

The art and technology of jewellery-making is examined in some detail as are the ornaments themselves. Even the use of semi-precious stones like jadeite, carnelian, jasper, steatite, quartz, agate, onyx and black chert are studied.

With the changing times, fashions in bodily adornment changed and this book takes a historical over-view of the changing context with apt illustrations in stunning colour.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
