Lacquer earrings

One of my close friends got me my first pair of these simple yet amazing earrings from Rajasthan. I instantly fell in love with these - now I have almost all the colors that are available! (Yeah! we already talked about my fetish/madness/craze for such stuff)

These come in different colors, shapes & sizes. The ones in the picture are the most common ones. The pictures below don’t do any justice to the beauty of these earrings. They are simple yet graceful. These will definitely add an understated traditional touch to Any Outfit!

In Bangalore you can find these at Safina Plaza (Infantry Road), Commercial Street.






About Lacquer jewellery:
Lacquer is a type of resin excreted from certain insects. To make these earrings Lacquer is fused with etched beaten metal sheets. They join these fused plaques to make bangles, earrings & Chains. The finished jewellery looks beautiful with studded colorful stones & multi color beads.
