About the Event

Previous participation and previous knowledge are not required.

In archaeological evidence, jewelry is known as the "special find" since it is one of the best markers of any era's economic, social, and cultural advances. The Indus Valley, the oldest civilization in the South Asian region, has left behind numerous artifacts and jewelry that have been discovered during archaeological digs. This proves how advanced the technique of producing and wearing jewelry was in this location. The decorative arts and paintings of ancient India have demonstrated a profound mastery over the styles and appeal of jewelry, and the use of metals and stones has been characterized by a significant amount of craftsmanship and originality. This uniqueness can relate to the material or metals, design, or occasion of use and gains a more considerable significance than its financial value because of its symbolic elements. With the further development of society and advancement of thoughts, the jewelry styles changed and that is evident from the literature as well as the archaeological evidence.
