Home Textiles Show: EPCH

Enjoy a Great Mix of Traditional and Contemporary Ornaments at EPCH Jewelry Fair in India

New Delhi, 13 Feb 2018: The art of making beautiful and intricate ornaments is 5000 years old in India, and Indian artisans became the masters of handcrafted jewelries thousands of years ago. They have brought many changes over the years. The weighty traditional ornaments became lighter and the semi-precious stones replaced the expensive diamonds or other gemstones. The contemporary jewelry became lighter and more economic due to this reason. Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) supports this change and presents a diversified collection of handicraft ornaments through jewelry fair in India. It presents both traditional ornaments and contemporary costume jewelries to attract consumers from all over the world

Traditional Ornaments

The ornament designers of Rajasthan, West Bengal and South India are the masters of antique jewelries. These traditional gold ornaments have subdued looks and they carry the charm of yesteryears. The antique trinkets of Rajasthan are designed with uncut diamonds, gemstones or fresh-water pearls. The antique ornaments from West Bengal or South India have engraved designs on the gold body without any stone or ornamenting elements. The artisans of Rajasthan are also famous for the traditional Jadau ornaments with stone-studded designs. The artisans of Jammu and Kashmir are famous for beaded ornaments decorated with precious stones. The craftsmen of Uttar Pradesh and Orissa are famous for traditional or contemporary filigree work on the silver or gold jewelries. The ornament designers of West Bengal and Rajasthan also have reputation for stunning ‘Meenakari’ work. The EPCH encourages Indian wholesalers of handicrafts to bring this wide variety of traditional ornaments to its trade show 2018 like the previous years.
