Tribal Designs Redefined in Elegance

The collection revisits the rustic charm of tribal jewellery in the form of elegant designs. Every piece is adorned with beautiful coil work, a predominant motif that’s used in the ancient art of Dhokra.

The art form of Dhokra dates back to 4000 years and is one of the earliest non-ferrous, lost-wax casting techniques known for its simplicity and artistic coil motifs. Often also spelt as Dokra, it is named after the Dhokra Damar tribe of West Bengal. It is a tedious and time-consuming process, which includes several steps like making a wax model, covering it with clay and baking it in a kiln to form the final casted metal piece. This collection, however, borrows the coil motifs used in Dhokra and beautifully offsets it with intricate cutwork to produce elegant gold jewellery.

The craft of making brass jewellery using the Dhokra technique was practised during the Indus Valley Civilisation, as well as in ancient Rome and Egypt. Dhokra is a popular artform in the tribal regions of West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and Madhya Pradesh. However, historians state that a few hundred years ago, the Dhokra tribes of Central and Eastern India travelled as far as Kerala and Rajasthan and hence the art is found all over India. It is now practised by different communities like the Ghantaras, Situlias, Ghasis Thataries, and Bathudis. Featuring tribal-inspired Dhokra jewellery, this collection has earrings, rings and necklaces that are the perfect option to pair with anything from ethnic to contemporary outfits. Dhokra earrings in this collection have beautiful shapes that are further accentuated with fine laser-cut patterns. Dhokra rings, on the other hand, are big, bold, and the ideal showstoppers for any cocktail dress. Dhokra necklaces from this collection are chunky yet elegant enough to accessorise any plain outfit.
