Amulets, Lockets and Talismans


'Amulets, Lockets and Talismans': our new collection of enduring, timeless designs that have great poetic and cultural resonance.....

Drawing from different cultural references and eras (Victorian, Central Asian, Indian tribal), we've put together a collection that though varied in its aesthetic vocabulary, is bound together by its intent.

Its intent to hold and keep secret whatever you wish to share with it- your memories (your new born's lock of hair, picture of a dear one, a love note....), hopes and aspirations (your personal or professional goals for next month or next year- new job, solo trip to Italy....) or even motivational reminders ("this too shall pass", "I can and I will".....).

Subscribing to the belief held since time immemorial that if one kept certain words, phrases or visuals close to skin, their potency would exponentially increase- we hope to give you a selection of exquisite jewellery that will help keep your chosen words/mementos close to you- for you do draw more power from.

Visually stunning though these pieces are, their true significance lies in the stories that click shut into these beautifully detailed pieces.

Handcrafted with utmost care and love by our jewellery karigars in Jaipur, these labour intensive and technically complex pieces have been created in a mix of sterling silver and gold plated brass to mimic the feel and look of vintage, well worn pieces.

A definite future heirloom, these are the kind of jewellery pieces you want to invest in. Once passed along to a new generation, these pieces will begin to hold an entire family history, acquiring an even bigger significance for the wearer. Wouldn't that be beautiful?

Needless to mention, these meaningful pieces will make a perfect gift for any special occasion, including weddings, birthdays and especially in a new year!
