CULTURAL DIVERSITY BY STYLE










When in Nepal, everyday & everywhere
 we go we see nepali women 
wearing beautiful jewellery which
is also a symbol of wealth. 
Each tribe has their own style 
so if you know what to look for you can tell
wich tribe they belong to by having 
a glimpse on the 
jewellery they are wearing. 

Yellow gold is
definitely the most popular precious metal, but
just recently we got to learn that 
there is actually one tribe down south that
only wears silver ( bottom pic ) 
Interesting. 
Have to look more into that later 
on. 
One thing all the tribes have in common, 
is a gold or silver amulet that is worn to 
to ward off evil spirits. 

The jewellery also reflects creativity 
and special skills of the artisans who 
have been crafting these ornaments
for generations.

Keeping these traditions alive 
is one of the main reasons we work
with handmade jewellery. 

Man over machine.
