This Summer fill your cart with Mango jewels !!!!

With summertime in full bloom in India and an abundance of luscious yellow-orange mangoes, it is only natural to be drawn to jewels inspired by this juicy king of the fruits.

 

Called the “ambi” (amb means mango in Punjab), “kairi” (mango seed) or “manga in” in India, “boteh jegheh” or “butain” in Persia and “paisley” in Britain, the Indian mango motif is one of the most enduring symbols in the design world, its origins dating back to the 18th century or earlier.

 

Representative of life and eternity for some, a symbol of rebellion for others, most Indian designers have worked with the paisley motif at some point in their career, while some have spent their lifetime exploring its form.

 

Some designers prefer to opt for a simple and sleek interpretation of the motif, while others present more elaborate interpretations. Here you can find some inspiration:
