Designer Thewa Pendant Set
Designer Thewa Pendant Set is made on a mottled sheet of pure gold combined into a colored glass which then constitutes a single unit. This entire range of jewelry is handmade and sometimes a single piece of jewelry takes more than a month’s time. The glass that is blended with the gold, is treated by a special process which renders a dazzling effect and in turn highlights the gold patterns. Over a period of time, the makers of the jewelry have come up with customizations to the traditional way of crafting a Designer Thewa Pendant Set piece. Thewa is now being combined with the Kundan art which is again a traditional art of jewelry and adds another dimension to the original Thewa.
Thewa jewelry is prominent all over India. Crossing the borders of Rajasthan “the land of colors”, Thewa now reigns over the hearts of women throughout the country. The last century saw a new version of Thewa in the Cannetille style i.e. the contemporary European style. This opened the doors for this essentially India style to the rest of the world. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and some other museums display some pieces of this art. This jewelry style is so in sync with the Indian sentiment that even Prince Charles was gifted a special Thewa item on his marriage, by the Government of India.
