    More about the brand.

    Zevar Jewellery is a London based company and the products are crafted in Jaipur, India.

    Zevar works with a selected group of artisans in India to transform their designs into beautiful jewellery. Each piece is handmade and Zevar eschew mass manufacturing to keep their brand exclusive.

    The art of decorating metal with enamelling, or meenakari, was introduced to India by the Mughals. Raja Man Singh of Amber brought meenakari to Rajasthan at the turn of the 16th century. Man Singh brought skilful craftsmen from the Mughal palace at Lahore and established them in Jaipur, which became the centre of Meenakari.
