Meenakari Kimono Ring in Diamond

9,000.00

22ct yellow gold, vitreous enamel polki diamond, sapphire & diamond pave.

The sacred architecture and patterns of the Silk Route are the inspiration for Alice Cicolini’s Meenakarijewellery. These pieces are handmade in India in the studio of Kamal Kumar Meenakar. One of the last Jaipuri meenakari trained in the enamel traditions of Persia, his skills have been passed down through generations over 250years. A family whose work has been exhibited the world over, their craftsmanship remains of superlative quality. Patterns are inspired by myriad sources, from textiles and tiles, to architecture and ceramics.

The red line of meenakari around the stone functions in the same way as the line of hinglu (or red pigment) around the traditional Rajasthani picchvai, portable shrines to Krishna, the Hindu God of Love; the red line represents a sacred space.

Meenakari is also known as “the secret”, an intimate dialogue with the gem’s wearer.
