Acerca de


... Most books record collections of kings, queens, emperors and royalty. Jewellery to them was an evidence of a luxurious, extravagant, self-indulgent way of life. Magnificent designs, extraordinary craftsmanship, intricate traditional workmanship characterize Indian Jewellery. The books on jewellery are therefore a treasure, a connoisseur's delight. Despite the presence of such a vast number of books on jewllery, we decided to publish One More. We think that this is the first one of its kind book on jewellery. We are even tempted to call this a Unique Publication. Unique in the sense, that this book records collections of working middle class and upper middle class Indians. No book on jewellery has ever published a collection patronized by the common Indian masses. This is where the contribution and the legacy of Shri Dalpat Bhai Zaveri stands out as extraordinary. In a country like India jewellery is the most important possession for a middle class woman, her personal jewellery remains her only property. Her jewellery is her security, a possession she can encash within minutes of a dire need. Even the humblest woman in India who can afford nothing clings to her ornaments in gold or silver. No wonder ornaments are considered "Stri Dhan" and a bride must have a Mangalsutra made of gold. This aspect of jewellery associated with common people of India is relevant to all people regardless of religion, sect, caste or creed. A matter of lesser importance is the role jewellery plays in raising a woman's beauty and charm. The inspiration for such a book came from Virendra Zaveri who is the proud inheritor of his families hundred years of tradition. The collections of this book are result of his families' dedication to creativity & quality of craftsmanship par excellence. The lovers of Indian jewellery will surely appreciate this treasure, never seen before. The future historians will see this collection with a great deal of curiosity, intrigue & awe.
