A little bling from Jaipur
Jaipur is world-famous for their precious and semi-precious stones. Supposedly 80% of the world's semi-precious stones are cut in Jaipur. There are tons of jewelry stores throughout the Pink City, and it's tough to know where to go. I wanted to get cufflinks made with rose diamonds, or as some call them raw diamonds. My tour guide brought me to The Ratnam Jewellers where I found the perfect pair. Shyam Sharma, the shops owner takes his time as he pulls out trays and trays of beautiful, unique pieces that you might not find elsewhere in Jaipur. That could be because Shyam travels between Jaipur and Firenze, Italy, and has a flair for creating interesting piece. Like with all Jaipur shops, it's customary to bargain! Amer Road, Jaipur.
