The new Rajasthan jewellery collection by Zoya

Indian jewellery brand Zoya presents the Rajasthan collection of jewels.


Zoya is a chain of luxury diamond jewellery boutiques in India owned by the TATA conglomerate and is the premium brand of the Tanishq jewellery business. Zoya is both a product and a retail brand and is targeted at the discerning, design-conscious woman who is international in her taste. The boutiques offer mainly diamond jewellery as well as the traditional polki and kundan jewellery.

In Zoya boutiques you will find inspirations from around the world coming together in precious creations. Ancient cultures. A forgotten relic. A sensual dance. An exotic fabric. A sudden burst of rain. Zoya captures the soul of these inspirations with expert craftsmanship and immortalizes them in fine designs of gold, diamonds and precious stones each awaiting its turn to share its own story.

One of their most remarkable collections is 'Rajasthan', a collection inspired by the city of Bikaner. Nestled in the magical landscape of The Great Thar Desert, Bikaner has been witness to changing dynasties, epic battles and a confluence of diverse cultures. Beneath the surface of the region's enigmatic beauty that the untrained tourist eye merely glances over, lies a myriad of influences: Arabian, Persian, Mughal and even Western.

By translating this fascinating cultural potpourri into an elegant, traditional collection of kundan and polki jewellery, Zoya captures the many moods of the desert kingdom of Bikaner. 'Kundan' is one of the oldest forms of jewellery made and worn in India is made from 22 carat gold. Its defining moment was during the Mughal era and many stunning pieces were created in this era. Kundan work is a method of gem setting, consisting of inserting gold foil between the stones and its mount. It is a product of well-orchestrated teamwork and involves a variety of specialist skills.

Uncut flat diamonds called 'Polki' are also used in most products. To give a well-groomed finish, the reverse sides of the products are beautifully decorated by a technique called 'Meenakari'.

 Most products in this collection use a floral form language inspired by the beautiful landscapes of Rajasthan. The interesting names of each product also enhance the significance of Indian culture in each one. Where 'Indradhanush' (rainbow) depicts of the beauty of a rainbow through its array of colors, 'Utsav' (festival) with its vibrant tones give a feeling of celebration. This confluence of design and enticing names and inspiration make the Rajasthan collection stand out from the crowd.

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.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
