If there was such a thing as ‘costume’ jhumke, the danglers you see on this page would be an elegant example. Jhumke is the vernacular word for traditional Indian danglers designed for bridal purposes. While they are usually heavy and studded with jewels, these are made from sterling silver with a bunch of crimson garnets worked into the chain. The pendant comprises a pattern of solid silver with a sharp-cut gemstone at the centre.
Garnets are a fascinating group of silicates. The red-coloured versions of these pure crystals have been used as adornments in cultures across Europe and Asia, even though their function as abrasives is indispensable to many industries. The minuscule garnets handpicked for these danglers have been cut and faceted with considerable skill and precision. Note the gold plating on the loops that hold them together.
