With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Necklace from India

Necklace from India

This beautiful amethyst pendant was hand crafted by Parul.
She is an artisan who was born and raised in Delhi.

When I received a letter from the folks at
and read their mission statement, I gladly accepted their offer to review their products and post about it.

Parul writes: "I design all my jewelries and experienced silversmiths help me craft them. I oversee each and every step. My designs are basically inspired by traditional Indian styles and setting, with a touch of modern elements.
 This amethyst flower necklace is called, Nostalgia. Leaves and vines encircle a faceted 5-carat stone with cubic zirconium accent and is displayed on a silver rope chain.
What attracted me most to NOVICA (which is in association with National Geographic)
is that they provide a bridge between the talented artists across the globe and those that appreciate unique items and want an attachment to the hands that created them.

It took me a long time to finally decide on am item because there are so many beautiful items to choose from.
Their categories include Home Decor, Area Rugs, Chess Sets and Games, Furniture, Mirrors, Sculpture, Vases, Tapestries.
Jewelry, necklaces, rings, bracelets, Handbags, Travel Bags.
A vast selection and information about each creator.
I recommend visiting
to see some of the treasures offered there and the
culture and tradition of pieces made by skilled artists the world over.
