This bracelet, amazingly ethnic in its look that primarily lapis lazuli beads, both by their large size and enormity, generate, is a piece of jewellery – exclusive and singular, affording the wearer a rare distinction, is composed of silver and lapis lazuli beads, one in the centre being the largest, two, flanking it, large but smaller to one in the centre, and thirty-two small, fourteen, framing around the central bead, and nine each, around the two beads. While all other beads, the two flanking the one in the centre, and thirty-two small, are in dark ocean blue tint, the largest in the centre is in lighter tint and has golden and greenish spots all over, a characteristic feature of lapis lazuli. All beads, large or small, have been cut into oval shape. The bright blue metamorphic rock lapis lazuli consists largely of lazurite, a bright blue mineral composed chiefly of a silicate and sulphate of sodium and aluminium, and hence it is considered as both, a rock with moderate strength, as well as a hard mineral.

The bracelet’s base that holds the beads – the base-component or the main body of the bracelet, has been cast from fine sterling silver : 92.5 percent silver and rest, strengthening metallic ingredients. This main body is composed of five strips, each with a moulded upper, and flat reverse, and three islands – oval-shaped, with socketed frames soldered on it for holding the beads. The frames for larger beads have on their bottoms additional decorative rings, while the spaces between the frames for small beads have been manipulated with tiny silver granules. On its inside, or the face, the entire silver base has been most brilliantly polished. A popular folk song in ancient Greece admired the brightness of the moon on a particular night, not on all nights, to be as bright as lapis lazuli. Lapis lazuli apart, in this bracelet its finely polished silver base too attains the same translucence as moon has on some special days.

In all early cultures Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek or Himalayan hill region’s, lapis lazuli was revered and used as the most protective amulet. It was long considered as the most effective cure for melancholy : a mental ailment something equivalent to modern times depression or even mental tension, and quartern fever : the malaria occurring on every third, sometimes fourth, day. In Egyptian way of life lapis lazuli was a timeless protector. It protected not merely the ‘living’ but also the ‘dead’. The divine images carved from a lapis lazuli rock were placed around the neck of mummies believing that it will protect not only the mummy from decay but also the dead’s heart. Such similar images installed in the shrines were believed to protect the ‘living’ from all ailments and mishaps. If a divine image could not be carved, a piece of lapis lazuli rock carved into a heart-like shape was placed with the dead believing that it would protect his or her heart.

Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books. .
