Design code: PBZ-1506(S)-N

Handcrafted in sterling silver with genuine hand-painted miniature paintings/artworks enclosed between a silver plate and a glass front.

This one is for all the story collecting, design-loving aesthetes. We took a stylish linear linked necklace and added miniature paintings pendants to create three eclectic narratives and share these stories with you. Every element thought through, to make them distinctive and unique.

(1) Myth and Mythology: comprising of (from left to right):
square 'Surya' (Sun God), red round 'Vishnu-hasta' (hands of Lord Vishnu), round black Goddess Ganga [mounted on a makra (crocodile), holding a jar of amrita, lotus and one hand in varada mudra (a gesture by the hand symbolizes dispensing of boons)], round 'chandra aur nakshatras' (moon god and the stars), and white rectangular 'Shrinathji' (Krishna).

(2) Tales from the subcontinent: comprising of (from left to right):
dark blue small round Mughal floral motif, rectangular Mughal motif 'qaleen' (carpet), square Tantra diagram, red drop-shape 'tota' (parrot), and small round 'soma' (crescent Moon God).

(3) Bageecha (garden): comprising of (from left to right):
black inverted drop-shape Mughal lily, red drop-shape 'tota' (parrot), yellow round Mughal 'khasakhas' (poppies), oval Mughal 'ababeel' (swallow), and dark blue small round Mughal floral motif.


You can, of course, script your own narrative- buy a plain linked necklace in this listing and then hop over here to buy individual miniature painting charms to add to it.

This is not a blend-in, safe necklace option. It will draw attention. But it is super versatile and will integrate effortlessly into your wardrobe. Glamorous enough to have that “it” factor yet something that will age well and be heirloom-worthy for future generations.

Dimensions: The total length of the necklace is 17.5” inches + an additional 1.5” extension chain. The necklace comprises 6 pipes in the center that are 3.5 cm long each, with a regular thin chain on either side.

Please note: The pendants/painted units, in the Signature piece, are attached to the necklace and can't be removed and used as charms.

In a quaint home-cum-studio in Rajasthan, each miniature is deftly painted, using centuries-old techniques. Please allow for minor variations in the artwork and color, in keeping with their hand-painted nature.
