Enamel Inlaid Silver Pendant "Ananya"

Meenakari antique silver pendant from Fabindia's "Ananya" collection.Celebrate the passage of time with this inlaid pendant. Centuries old traditions carry great meaning for the artisans who craft this pendant for us.

Meenakari is the art of decorating metal with enameling. It has its origins in Persia and was introduced in India by the Mughals. Raja Man Singh of Amber brought this art to Rajasthan. He invited skillful meenakars from the Mughal palace at Lahore and established them in Jaipur. Jaipur later on went on to become the center of Meenakari in India.
