About Raniwala 1881
Raniwala 1881 is the purveyors of handcrafted Flat-Cut Polki Jadau Jewellery. Their pieces hold within it a history of Indian royalty, with patterns, motifs and compositions inspired by the heritage of Rajasthan which shines through the signature Jadau jewellery, timeless and lustrous like the desert sun.
As custodians of traditional jewels, the Raniwala 1881 showcases treasured collections. Artisanal techniques, finest gemstones and intricate settings coalesce to form award-winning jewellery that combines the old and the new. The gems echo the imperial history of the land, and the rich promise of a brand that embraces time and has evolved with it.
The visual story of the branding has also been inspired by the beauty of Jadau jewellery and the history of the Raniwala family. Each element interprets the unusual setting of Jadau pieces, artifacts and architecture of the haveli. It comes together forming a graphic language which is modern yet timeless, and unique to the family.
Ghat is a gold frame over which the complete jewellery is built; crafted by Ghadia.
Khudai being the third process, is where engravers create beautiful reliefs on the ghats for enameling.
Jadai is the fifth stage of this process, where the jadaia embeds the gemstones using kundan in the structures of the jewellery.
