Thewa earrings with 23 ct gold fusion on glass. Casing is of sterling silver with micron gold plating. Raja style, Rajasthan, 18th century.

The origin of Thewa dates back in the year 1767 under the patronage of Maharawat Samant Singh of Rajasthan. The local name for this technique Thewa, literally means setting.

Shrouded in complete mystery as to its making the artisans of Thewa follow a patriarchal method of practicing the art for fear of divulging family secrets to their daughter's in-laws. As a result the legacy is carried forward from father to son only.

Thewa is a traditional art of fusing 23ct gold with multicoloured glass. The process followed is detailed and intricate. Patterned sheet of pure gold is fused onto coloured glass to create a unit. Each unit consists of a flat piece of transparent glass of different colours intentionally suggesting ruby, emerald and sapphire.

In the 19th century Thewa unit makers prepared elaborate settings in gold wire in the Canetille style, so called after contemporary European style.

The glittering finish on embellished Minakari jewellery enhances the beauty by play of light and shade through transparent colours. The delicately floral design with imaginative blend of traditional patterns and colours, revive the raja style from the 18th century Rajasthan. These earrings are made in Minakari style.
