Thewa Jewelry

I have been waiting to write this post for a while now. I was really excited when I found this cool and unique jewelry style and couldn’t wait to share it with the rest of y’all!

I found this, as part of my research for Kundan jewelry. I never knew this kind of style existed. I am familiar with “filigree” work, but that is mostly done in silver. I had never seen similar kind of work done with gold.

I found from my research that it is a 400 year old art and the jewelry is created by fusing 23K gold with colored handmade glass. The common glass colors are mostly red, green and blue because they mimic the tones of rubies, emeralds and sapphires. The designs can vary depicting animals like peacocks or elephants or can also depict day-to-day life, legends and even hunting scenes.

What’s even better is that there are so many choices out there to select from and one should definately own one piece of Thewa jewelry.

Now, the prices for these pieces can vary based on the gold being used. You can have gold plated casings on the glass vs actual 23K gold casings.

I like this set because you can wear the pendant with a simple gold chain and it would work with any kind of outfit.

This is such a classic piece. It has that “khaandaani” look to it with the three strand “maharani” style design.

Thewa and Kundan together! Fabulous! The price is quite steep for this piece( $1487.50) but the design is exquisite.

I love this set for its modern feel. The understated design in the earrings do make it look very traditional and at $937, it is a little more reasonable than the Kundan set.

Enjoy the selections!
