Muted Mondays: Himachali Jewellery

Can you have too much of jewellery? Not in my world! Today, we are having a quick peep at the jewellery from the Himachal region. Recently, I came across a story that mentioned that some of Sita’s hair jewellery including the beautiful butterfly designs were hand crafted by the great silversmiths of the then Himachal region! I was totally fascinated by this and hence started by research into this. So, here I am, sharing some traditional designs with you…Hope you enjoy the next couple of minutes looking over this…

I must beg your pardon for not having included any of Sita’s butterfly designs (as specified in the legend, of course!) But my research into the region’s jewellery did lead me to some gorgeous designs from the region. Did these strike a chord with you? Do you want any of these already as part of your collection? Tell me all…

Have a happy, satisfying and productive week, people!

XO,Nupur
