Paan Base Double Thewa Pendant
The basic Thewa jewelry 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 Thewa 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.
Jewellery for women and men is not only for making luxurious style statement and self-ornamenting, but also to celebrate the very being of life and filling it with all the jewels and glitter that make it much more wonderful. Jewellery has an inherent quality to make the wearer and the onlooker genuinely happy. It has the power to bring a unique gleam in the wearer’s eyes, the gleam of owning something so precious, expensive and beautiful. And therefore, be it gold or diamond fashion jewellery, each kind of jewellery holds a special position in your personal collection for its ethereal beauty and importance.
