Here is an antique piece of jewellery that was recently seen at the Jodhpur gems & jewels palace. This is a 120-130 years old pendant, which was worn by a princess in south India. This beautiful piece is made from tiger nails, a totem believed to protect the wearer from evil eye. Gems & jewels palace has added a very different touch to it by adding high-quality emeralds and rubies on the four strings and the central drop.
This is a stunning image of Piaget cuff. Piaget’s ‘Sunlight escape’ feather cuff, 24.36-carat emerald cut tanzanite dazzles in the centre of this one-of-a-kind blue emotion studded with 600 diamonds. The most exotic part of this cuff is the striking geometric pattern created from feathers, by Nelly Saunier, an award-winning feather artist.
A technique invented by Wallace Chan is this ‘The Wallace Cut’- an illusionary three-dimensional carving technique, creating a history. He has his own patented Cut known as Wallace cut, which is an intricate way to carve inside the gemstone, reflected by stone presenting 3D holographic effect.
