Ornate jewelry is a proud cultural tradition in India and every piece in our collection hints at a deeper story. In the sprawling urban center of Old Delhi, our partner group of nearly 80 artisans delicately bends, etches, beads and polishes jewelry from stones, glass, upcycled metal and wires, seeds, and other materials. However, these artisans are not only limited to jewelry. Many of them go on to create other products such as frames, ornaments, and hair accessories made out of bone. They inherit their craftsmanship from their ancestors, who were master jewelers.
In 2009 we were contacted by Sana, the young daughter of an artisan in this mostly Muslim group, who was dissatisfied with the exploitative treatment of her family and community by local tradesmen. Since our fair trade partnership began, their earnings have doubled, they have upgraded to better workspace, and children are staying in school longer. In fact, Sana became the first girl in her village to attend college!
Its very attractive. The etching was a little incomplete in places but overall satisfied and I'm sure I'll wear it and enjoy it. Thanks!
This ring is gorgeous for the price! The metal irritates my skin, so I painted the inside and edges with clear nail polish. It's perfect now.
Metal Impression Ring
I love it but I think I will be giving them away as gifts for the holiday. Thank you so much.
Absolutely love my ring
Love, love, love my ring. When I read the only review that it made her finger black-I didn't care. It was so beautiful I wanted it anyway. So I got it and it has not turned my finger black. I am so glad I got it. I get lots of compliments about my ring. Go ahead-get one!
