Inspired from Meenakari Jewellery with its roots in Jaipur, the art of enameling jewellery actually dates back all the way to 4th Century BC to the Greeks who used to apply glass paste on gold jewelry. Beautiful, 92.5 sterling silver enamel pieces are a reflection of this beloved trend which was fitting even for Mughal emperors!
