What began as a passion and love for collecting beautiful artefacts slowly transformed into a magnanimous collection for Co-founder and Conceptualizers of Amrapali Museum, Rajiv Arora and Rajesh Ajmera. The collection has been a labour of love that began nearly 40 years ago when they became friends at college, and that continues to this day.
After several years’ of work spent in documenting and researching the collections, heritage jewellery house Amrapali Jewels finally opened the gates to the spectacular Amrapali Museum in Jaipur. The museum is the first of its kind showcasing only vast collections of jewellery collected from different eras of time. It showcases traditional silver jeweled arts of India reflecting the ‘everyday’ life of the people here.
The collection at the Amrapali Museum is profoundly different, both in its nature, and in the way it has been collected. Over the years, Amrapali Jewels has regularly used the collections gathered by its founders to inspire its modern offerings, and is one of the brand’s distinguishing features.
The Museum also seeks to explore the enormous range of inspirations for design that were available to the Indian craftsman over time, from nature, religion, geometry or international trends, seen through both the jewellery as well as the range of silver objects in the collection: from spittoons, rosewater sprinklers, and paan sets; to plates, tea sets, and assortments of boxes in every shape, size and type of craftsmanship; to personal accessories as small as a toothpick, or elaborately made silver shoe covers.
The museum also aims to be a haven for scholars, students, connoisseurs and other visitors to Jaipur, who will get to explore the heritage and history of India through the jewellery and artifacts.
