Jaipur - City of Gemstone

The history of gemstones begins three centuries ago when Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh brought this industry to his newly founded city. No one would have imagined then, that this will make the identity of the city of Jaipur today. Initially, only a few craftsmen worked on unpolished gemstones, but over time the city grew into the gemstone capital of the world, thanks to its exports of gemstones and jewelry. Now, gems come from all over the world to be cut and worked in the pink city.


The great jewelers meet there to exchange, sell or buy precious and semi-precious stones. The creators find their happiness with rough stones, cut into mounting pearls or ready to be mounted in jewelry.

Among them, Diamond, Emerald, Garnet, Agate, Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, Jade, Topaz and Ruby. And if you want to know more about it, do not hesitate to read our article on the meaning of the stones.

Thus, over time, the number of artisan workshops has steadily increased in Jaipur.

Nowadays, it is world famous brands such as Cartier and Bulgari who come to get their raw materials in Jaipur, but also new brands like Marie Lichtenberg in search of authenticity and excellence.

With its expertise for more than 40 years, Dwarka Jewel has forged its good reputation by meeting the requirements of brands. The company is one of the most important factories in the city. Seeking in its infancy to help it and establish itself in the art of jewelry, it currently allows more than 350 people to work in healthy conditions. In a difficult economic situation for India, especially after the health crisis, Dwarka wanted to keep all its teams and believe in the revival of the market so as not to let these employees drift. With these many artists with unique know-how, the manufacture thus brings to each piece of jewellery, a story, a soul and meticulous work.

They Use Two Techniques for This:

The faceted cut that allows the stone to shine, in various shapes and sizes, square, oval, elongated or drop-shaped. The shape and number of facets will vary according to the desired effect, but also according to the stone and its possibilities.

The second process, smooth stone cutting, often reserved for opaque or less shiny stones. Called the cabochon cut, it requires great attention and significant experience since it is difficult to cut a stone to give it a round shape.

It is with its skills that Dwarka offers the realization of tailor-made jewelry to its customers, from photos or drawings. You will find in the showroom multiple selections of precious and semi-precious stones already cut, just waiting to be mounted in rings, earrings, pendants or bracelets. The company works in such a way as to respect the stones and the request of the partners.
