Indian Royalty and jewellery are a package deal. It was not just the women whom adorned themselves; the men were not to be left behind either. Jewellery was a way of establishing the structure and hierarchy in the household. Whilst many Indian royal households had their own jewellery makers -usually families who had for generations been the allocated jewellery makers for the particular household and had passed down their skills on the craft for generations, Indian royalty were also partial to many European jewellery designers and makers.
Every year Kasturjewels is part of the Fabulous Fashion High Tea in Nairobi (the capital of Kenya) at the Zen Garden, where local and international designers showcase their collections amidst a highly trendy setting of fashion shows, couture, delicious cuisine and drinks.
Today’s India is more often than less seen as a mega polis, an almost continent in itself bustling with activity, modernism, the effects of massive capitalism, consumerism and democracy.
We take heavy inspiration in our jewellery designs & brand ethos from the architecture, wall paintings and stories associated to these magnificent structures.
The main idea behind our pieces is using old designs with contemporary ideas making Kasturjewels timeless yet fashionable. Many of the designs date back to historical royal India as far back as the 11th century.
