'The Naksha Kanbala' In the halcyon days of the Bengali Zamindars, these elegant guinea gold Kanbalas would have been de rigueur for the ladies of the house. Today, however, they’ve become a precious rarity. Made by a line of all but extinct master artisans, these immaculately hand-chased, hand-crafted beauties give an altogether different spin to the word ‘earrings’ and are guaranteed ‘show-stoppers’ everywhere.

This v~shaped belt necklace with a traditional butta, or jhumka, as the centrepiece, is defined by its formidability. The usual Tamil pomp and typical Bengali restraint marry to create a glitzy, showy ornament that cleverly hides its light weight and even lighter demeanour behind a facade of superlative craftsmanship and deftly placed elements. With matched earrings, all in copper~tinted 22K gold ; and a row of set pearls for added spice.
