Timeless, elegant, and artistic Koel (bird) necklace
Design code: PBZ-1656-N
Handcrafted in sterling silver with genuine hand-painted miniature paintings/artworks enclosed between a silver plate and a glass front.
In our design choices, we tend to lean towards the classic and the timeless- but with modern simplicity. This necklace, is, therefore, very us. And we suspect it is very you too. Subtle elegance, clean lines, and exquisite attention to detail.
Koel, being a familiar bird with a loud call, find frequent references in Indian folklore, myth, and poetry. The graceful rendition of the bird, in this necklace, in Mughal miniature style, makes it as much a piece of art as a jewelry piece. Super-versatile- wear it solo, layer it up with other necklaces, or complement it with similarly detailed jewelry from this collection. Special enough to make a fabulous gift.
Dimensions: (of the oval Koel pendant- including the loop/bale and the design element on top of it) 6 cm long and 3 cm at the widest. The total length of the necklace end to end: 17" (including lobster clasp) with an additional 1.5" extension chain.
In a quaint home-cum-studio in Rajasthan, each miniature is deftly painted, using centuries-old techniques. Please allow for minor variations in the artwork and color, in keeping with their hand-painted nature.
