THE GEM PALACE EXPERIENCE
A magestic 'haveli' on the busy Mirza Ismail road in Jaipur is home to The Gem Palace. A place where travellers from across the world stop to glimpse into history. As one enters the shop, one gets the feeling of being transported in time to the ages of the Maharajahs at the zenith of their wealth and power. For The Gem Palace is not just a place, it is an experience in itself.
Rooms lined with old motifs and objects of art only highlight the era to which the rich jewellery showcased belongs. A time when ceremony, pomp and show were the way of life. The pieces of jewellery worn by the rulers and their families were then a way of expressing their power.
It is this very jewellery that you will find at Gem Palace. Rare and exquisite jewellery from 17th century Moghul empires to designs from the 1920s and 30s. Jewels designed by the former generations of the Kasliwal family and by their stable of jewellery designers, goldsmiths, gemstone and diamond cutters, polishers, setters exclusively for the royalties.
