Fascinated with the jewellery and objects adorned by the previous generations and tribal groups, Amrapali founders Rajiv Arora and Rajesh Ajmera began the label for a passion of reviving Indian art forms. The journey of the brand that began in 1978, led the two partners to embark on a six-year project in 2012. The result of that project was the Amrapali Museum that opened in 2018 in the pink city of India, Jaipur.
The two-floor museum built with a love to explore century-old art and the everyday lives of Indian tribes pays tribute to the incredible heritage and legacy of our country. It is curated with age-old silver and gold objects of adornment and jewellery that we don’t get to see elsewhere. With every step and every sight, the Amrapali museum tells us a beautiful story of our culture, teaches us how the art of ornamentation is an integral part of our lives and how heirloom jewellery has made us who we are.
Artists and craftsmen across India have fashioned magnificent works of art through ancient processes. And as the brand has always aimed to preserve ancient art through contemporary designs merged with exceptional hand skills and a traditional approach; the museum shows the diversity of ancient jewellery under one roof. Showcasing the miracle that is Indian art and design, the unique museum reflects and unfolds the evolution of our society.
With a hope to share the extraordinary history and culture we belong to, and keep the craft of Indian jewellery rooted in tradition, the Amrapali Museum is a beautiful ode to Indian craft.
