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.

Testimonials

Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
