It’s amazing what stories jewellery can tell. Take these Kutch/Rabari ‘vedhla’ earrings, for instance. These rare pairs are topped off with Venetian millefiori glass beads that came to Kutch between 16th- 20th centuries. Not from Italy directly but from East Africa where they were highly valued for their complexity and beauty and accepted as token money, from Europeans, in exchange for goods, services, and slaves. Also the reason for their common name- trade beads. 

These classic Kutch earrings, worn by the Rabari tribe, with their clean lines and a handsome, minimalist design, are truly timeless. Topped with a lovely soft patina.

Composition: ~ 80% Silver 

Stamped: No visible markings.

Measurements: approx. 6.4 cms long and 1.3 cms at the widest.

Weight: the pair with white and lilac beads is 12.82 gms and the pair with white, green and blue beads is 12.15 gms

Age: late 19th to early 20th century

Country of origin: Kutch, India.

Please note: All the jewellery in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewellery.

All the jewellery has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewellery is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase. It is also worth reminding that since the jewellery is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
