All that glitters?

by BerniShand

we are visiting Delhi, Jaipur and Agra in November and I have been told that Jaipur is a good place to buy jewellery.
Anyone bought any there ? would be grateful for info on prices, reputable stores etc.
I do know about the scam in buying precious stones.
Also does anyone know if charms for charm bracelets are available
Thanks
Berni

Hi I am from India only and I have been in Jaipur I suggest you if you buy anything in Jaipur try to buy from Indian Government authorised shops. Don't get thru agents. if you love to buy Handicraft and nice stones and marble antiques you must go government authorised showroom known Indian Handicraft at STC building on Janpath in connaught place. Do let me know if you need more information. I live in HongKong. Go to Delhi first Delhi and visit Jaipur Agra its just 4 and half hours drive from Delhi to Jaipur or Agra 4 hours and while going back you can buy the things from Delhi. Never go thru the commision agents in Delhi. IN case you want to enjoy Rajasthan state in real way then please hire your tickets in The train know as PALACE ON WHEELS which goes to whole rajasthan and its purely for tourists only> I think the fare should be around 1000 USD for 7 days trip which is really worth to enjoy the Rajasthan. please let me know what else you want. http://www.indiatravel.com/ you can check this website as well as http://www.travants.com/destination.php3?location_id=130

Yes..Jaipur is s good place for buying jwellery,especially for great craftmenship and traditional rajput designs. In india, gold jwellery is more popular and mostly available in showrroms. In my family we also buy jwellery from Jaipur, but its more of made to order kinda thing. Recently jewellery in white gold and platinum is getting popular but not a big hit with the indian local market. Jaipur is also an international hub of jewellery made using precious and semi-precious stones. Its normally a bulk market. and mainly for exports.
good places to go in Jaipur are main showrooms, instead of touts or one-man show establishments. In showrooms, the total price comprises of cost(weight) of gold/white gold/platinum..and the cost of craftmenship. with each readymade piece of jewellery you have a paper tag with the weight and the cost of making. So its pretty transparent.... you can try JKJ Jewllers and Surana Jewllers in jaipur, both are famous for their fair dealings.
While buying stones, its better if you know someone in the trade..however Zohari Bazar in the main jaipur city (walled city) is the main market for precious/semi-precious stones...a stroll will be useful..but again..avoid touts..As mentioned above, you can try government emporiums...but don't know about the quality of stuff.
Coz, its very difficult for a normal lay man to understand the quality and know the vlaue ofthe stone.
I think you'llbe able to get the charms for the bracelet....
let me know if u need more info..
cheers

Travel Tips for Jaipur

Amber Palace VIII - decorative magic everywhere

by pchamlis

The thing about the room at Amber Palace is that they're all special, all beautiful in their own way. Even the rooms of "less significance", or the breezeway, hallways and stairs have gorgeous reliefs, frescos precious stone inlay. Some of the items are in excellent condition, others are a bit worn. But, I think you'll find so many things to make you smile. You'll be glad that they've invented digital photography, there are lots of photos to be taken. :)

Jal Mahal

by grets

The Jal Mahal, also known as the Water Palace, is in the middle of Man Sagar Lake, along the road somewherebetween Amber Fort and Jaipur. The first four floors of the palace is under water, only the top floor remains above.

A causeway leads to the Palace which was built in 1799 as a pleasure spot for royalty and was used for the royal duck shooting parties. It has also been home to one of the prime ministers of Jaipur estate.

Our Alsisar Haveli Hotel Restaurant - good choice

by pchamlis about The Alsisar Haveli

As is the case in many Indian cities, most of the better restaurant (better meaning dependable quality and preparation standards) choices are attached to the hotels. We stayed at the Alsisar Haveli during our time in Jaipur. We ate several breakfasts at the dining hall, and one dinner. All were excellent, and the service was attentive and competent.

If you're looking for another hotel (other than yours) restaurant some evening, you might want to try the Alsisar Haveli. You'll be pleased with the food and will probably enjoy the historic Raj surroundings of the haveli itself. There is a nice selection of both Indian and Continental entrees on their buffet. Well prepared and kept nicely hot. There's also a good supply of "safe" fresh fruit for your pleasure.

As for a specific dish, we really liked the chickpeas... excellent taste and in some ways, they reminded me of the joy of a good bowl of black-eyed peas back home in the American south. They didn't taste like black-eyed peas, but they achieved the same perfect blend of spice, cooking time and "base" to be filling comfort food. :)

Oh, one other thing.... you can eat outdoors if you so choose. There are several outdoor wrought-iron tables available, and the waiters will provide table service out in the courtyard. If the evening is cool enough, it's a good choice.

The City Palace

by uglyscot

The City Palace is in the centre of Jaipur and next to the Observatory. It is a complex of buildings and gardens. The royal family used the main entrance and others used a different entrance.
The buildings are in the Moghul/ Rajasthan styles.
