Dramatic Diversity in Indian Jewelry


Indian Tribal jewelry is highly decorative and expressive, and it can be rather heavy and sizable.

Electric as it is earthy, this jewelry is fairly dramatic and makes quite a statement. Indian tribal jewelry is very broad in style too as it has an extensive list of tribes such as Banjara, Bastar, Arunachal Pradesh, and Khasi, among others.

Indian JewelryIndian tribes used raw materials in their jewelry including seeds, clay, leaves, and wood, but they also used other fine materials embracing silver and gold as well as many different stones.

This type of jewelry was usually seen in temples as it was made for tribes’ royalty that would often bring and leave it there as their offering to gods. Common themes in Indian tribal jewelry are gods and goddess figures, flowers, peacocks, dancers, and some more abstract themes like dots, waves, and zigzag patterns.

Hi there! I am Ileana Djujic, a jewelry blogger and the founder of Foxy Pearl Jewelry. We inform, share, and educate about authentic jewelry and jewelry-related events, wholesalers, deals and so much more from all over the world. Our goal is to encourage people to explore and experiment with jewelry, and to challenge trends rather than simply follow them. Besides jewelry, I am equally passionate about travel, the arts, writing (obviously), running, and chocolate. But jumpsuits, padded shoulders, and dresses with pockets are nice, too!
