A fascinating country, India is the largest democracy in the world with the highest number of official languages (and the highest number of tigers!). It is also a country where traditional jewellery making skills have been passed down through generations.
5,000 years of history lie behind jewellery making in India, with physical traces of ancient jewellery having been found made by the Indus Valley civilization. The oldest form of jewellery in India is believed to be beaded necklaces and bracelets.
