The Story Behind It

The Beauty of Bali or Jhumka: The South Indian Earring

In Hindi, earrings are called "bali" or "jhumka." Worn since ancient times, they are the most common form of jewelry in India dating back 5,000 years. Worn by women and men of all ages irrespective of race, caste or religion, earrings are a common yet very special adornment. Timeless and popular earring styles include hoops, chandeliers, dangles and drops with finishes that range from bright yellow gold to antique silver. Often embellished with semi-precious Indian stones like lapis or amethyst, each meticulously handcrafted style has a unique look and significance.
