I love quickies specially when they are related to travel. I enjoy such quick plans & execution more than those planned-since-long holidays & vacations. On Saturday Afternoon we started our road journey to Jaipur, expecting to catch a glimpse of those beautiful forts & palaces that speak of rich Indian heritage & culture we can only now imagine. I had been to Jaipur twice already and even this third time, I did not say no because it’s such a lively city full of colors and not just pink. The people here are warm & friendly. So it’s always a pleasant experience to be here.
We reached Jaipur quite late evening since you can’t avoid or escape the NH8 massive traffic. After checking into our hotel which was actually a nice resort situated at the outskirts of the city, we left to have a glance of the city at night. We kept on driving through & around the city till 12. And we just had Sunday at our hand.
I had never shopped much from Jaipur during my last visits. This time, I really wanted to explore the Johari Bazar of the city which is quite famous among shoppers. I am going to share my findings from the city which are really beautiful & I could not miss them.
My shopping started with beautiful earrings. There were not only jhumkas but all all kind of earrings like Afgani, Kashmiri etc. I too grabbed few pieces.
The main attraction of my earring shopping from Jaipur is this pair of green MeenaKari & Kundan earrings which look absolutely stunning with traditional & ethnic wear. I got these only for 200 INR from Johri Bazar which might be priced more than 500 INR in Delhi selling Meenakari items.
Neck Piece & Pendents
Jaipuri/Jodhpuri Kundan & Meenakari artwork is very famous not in just India but all around the world. One could not miss to grab some beautiful pendents of such beautiful art.
I also got a traditional tribal necklace which I am already a die hard fan of such tribal neck laces.
There were thousands of delicate bracelets with Precocious stones, Meenakari & Kundan design. I did not want anything big chunky but a subtle one, so settled for these two bracelets.
At every corners there were such beautiful jewellery boxes. I got this big gold jewellery box only for 200 INR & the small ones packed in a lovely box costing me another 100 bucks.
The traditional Mojri & Chappal collection was awesome. I don’t wear flats much so got only one pair of each. They look ecstatic.
Handmade Patchwork Purse With Tassels & Coins
These gorgeous pieces are all over instagram. These pieces are made with rajasthani patchwork & antique coins. Too pretty to ignore.
There was a lot of wooden work which you normally get at a very high price in metro cities. I got a cart with coasters, a pair of goose, small antique car wooden replica, a pen holder and few other small random items.
I also got some idols made of Italian marble which is another famous art of the city. And this concludes my shopping haul from Jaipur city. I would again visit it exploring the untouched areas of art & craft from the city. How did you like my haul? Anything special that you liked? Leave your lovely comments below.
Much Love ❤
