Indian jewellery may be roughly divided into two kinds: the heavy solid silver ornaments worn in the rural areas and the delicate highly sophisticated piece that adorn the urban woman. Basically, the items and their names are the same in both, only the raw materials and the stylization are different.

This little heart shaped bead could be part of any kind of jewellery, traditional or costume. The almost flat bead which looks simple at first sight, has actually an intricate pattern. All over the surface, extremely thin (with hair's breadth distance) lines are incised. These lines lend a mystique to the design without being very obvious. Granules of considerable size are judiciously placed, neither too close, nor far apart, in parallel rows. Since the lines are incised and the granules stand above, the affect is outstanding. Light falling on the bead, produces the kind of shine, which gives the granules an impression of diamonds.

With its flat shape and the area of perforated holes, they are ideal to fall as ends of earrings. Clearly, a shift from the ordinary circular beads.
