India: Bhandari Jewellers

We stopped off at Bhandari Jewellers in Jaipur:

We watched the technicians cut and polish various gems:

The Star Ruby can be found only in India.

Our tour guide, Michael, tried on a 200 carat Blue Topaz ring.

This is what I bought: A pair of amethyst and citrine pierced dangling earrings!

When I entered this jewelry store, I had no intention of buying anything, but as you see, these earrings were too pretty to resist.

    Ha Ha, you are too funny. I don’t wear jewelry very often anymore, but amethyst is one of my favorites and citrine is not far behind. Your amethyst is the dark purple kind and the very best. Do you have an idea of where it was mined? Just curious.

    I can’t wait to see you wear those earrings, they are so pretty! I would have had fun looking around that jewelry store.

    Shiny things always catch my eye and I have a hard time resisting. I do love amethysts, probably because purple is my favorite color.

    The earrings are so pretty and the gems quite substantial in size. Would go nicely with our local wear.
