Considered one of India’s “most magnificent” palaces is the lavish Umaid Bhawan Palace.

Constructed of marble the edifice holds gardens, courtyards and spacious rooms.  India is also home to featured jewelry designer Mahavir.

Mahavir’s largely sterling silver jewelry collection is a superlative example of the marriage of Western tastes mingled with India’s traditional aesthetic. 

Designs are eclectic from prayer boxes (Fervent Prayer Locket Pendant) to the armor-like details of an oblong cocktail ring (Princess Trio).

At first glance the focal point of his Star Shower Pendant Necklace resembles blown colored glass; but it is actually an inlaid lapis lazuli gemstone.

He effortlessly vacillates between the subtle regality of the stunning Regal Blue Necklace to the beautiful engraved and oxidized details of his Love’s Imagination Stacking Rings.  

His pairing of rainbow moonstone and blue labradorite with these silver rings is sublime; the gemstones perfectly complement the glistening white metal.

A native of Jaipur, Mahavir became enamored with gemstones during his childhood.  After studying commerce he took a leap of faith and opened a workshop where he developed his lapidary and metalsmithing skills.  Upon receiving positive feedback for his early work, Mahavir was ready to launch his collections.

“I believe designing jewelry is one of the most creative art forms. One can design an endless amount of jewelry.  Each new creation inspires me to create more,” he enthuses. 

“My designs are traditional and contemporary.  I cut and facet gemstones at the workshop.  I spend most of my time designing and several artisans now help me transform my ideas into reality.  Designing jewelry and learning about gemstones has been my passion from a young age.”
