Ethnic How do They Make That? South Asian Jewelry Edition

Monday, April 02, 2012

Who doesn't love fabulous South Asian jewelry? It is recognizable all over the world for its opulent designs. But most of all, I love finding interesting things to pair it with for a glam effect.

Take Cate Blanchett for example, who paired her gold Indian jewelry with a simple black gown for an eye-catching result:

And of course who could forget the beautiful accessories featured in Chanel's India-inspired Resort 2012 collection:

So I thought wouldn't it be great to catch a glimpse into the craftsmanship behind some of the world's most beautiful jewelry? I caught this man working on a traditional piece while visiting a jeweler in Karachi.

The amount of intricate hand-details that go into traditional South Asian design is breathtaking. I love the interesting color combination of South Asian jewelry!
