indian style jewellery

I saw this style of gem-setting at the Jewels of the Mughal Empire exhibit and was intrigued. I had always thought it was a Thai technique until that moment. Having seen intricate, multi-coloured versions on my trips to Bangkok city.

This technique is unique and quite exceptional in that you can view the gemstone from both sides and it allows light to pass through completely. So happy with my find!
