Patronized by Rajasthan royalty for well over half a century, the latest collection from Birdhichand Ghanshyamdas Jewellers continues the story of a family's passion for innovation in Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan. Among the oldest jewellery houses in the region, Birdhichand Ghanshyamdas has earned itself a reputation for its classic jewellery, which combines beauty, elegance and imagination. The new collection, Adrishya ('invisible' in Sanskrit), uses a new gem-setting technique to dazzling effect. By hiding the gold in which the gems are set, the ravishing beauty of the precious stones becomes more pronounced. 

The idea first began to take shape when Mr. Yash Agarwal, BG Jewels' creative director, noticed that a ring worn by one his relatives constantly hurt his finger due to the metallic element. 'Adrishya uses the technique of hiding gold in the jewellery while making the precious stones visible. It is a perfect blend of heritage and modernity with both gold and coloured stones used in a beautiful style. Nature was a constant source of inspiration,' says Agarwal. Each of the designs is lined with seamless stacks of precious stones, with no gold visible between each gem. 

The style is clean and crisp, and while many of the designs will go with traditional outfits, most are very versatile and can be worn with just about anything. One of the masterpieces is an exquisite bracelet, bejewelled with light yellow and white diamond polkis, combined with pink rubies and white diamonds in an invisible setting. 

Birdhichand Ghanshyamdas has an inimitable style, playing with colours and stones to create pieces that are unique and distinctive. Whether it's the bold pink sapphire ring or blue sapphire earrings, vibrant gemstones are the recurring theme. The full collection includes an array of necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings in red rubies, blue sapphires, emeralds and yellow diamonds - dazzling to the eye and delightful to wear.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.
