India is one of the top exporters of jewelry. Jewels of extreme beauty are crafted by gold and silversmiths of the country with unique skill and care. Indian tribal jewelry is significantly appreciated for it’s tact in using flowers, leaves, creepers and fruits, metal and wood to design exquisite fashionable wear.
Jewelry is made for most every part of the body in India. Jewelry is also not something that is limited to humans in this culture. It’s often found on horses and elephants which represent a ceremonial tone in expression of the gods. In this regard jewelry and religion are elegantly intertwined. An example of this union is the prayer bead or the rudraksh (berry of the elaocarpus canitrus) necklace. Often jewelry is worn in nomadic and migrant tribal communities as a representation of security and investment.
