The Gemstone Artisans Of India

POSTED BY: TheBangleBusiness


We are sometimes asked about our time in India.  What is it like?  What do you see?  Where do you find your jewellery?

It is difficult to paint the picture of this incredible country which is so poor in many ways and yet so rich in others.

I found this video called The Jewels Of Jaipur” which is about the talented artisans who cut and polish gemstones so that wonderful jewellery can be made.  It says far more than I ever could and it will give you a sense of what life is like in the hot and crowded world of India.

We are committed to working with fair trade suppliers and artisans who have ethical production systems, no child labour and help to build communities.  The people we work with often work in smaller places than those you will see in the clip but their work is of exceptional quality.

Watch the clip and think about where your gorgeous jewellery comes from.
