The art of gemstone carving in India is a very ancient tradition dating back to the Indus Valley civilization period when precious and semi-precious stones were first used in jewellery and in decorative art. Jaipur became one of India’s most important gem and jewellery export centres. A dynamic transformation and internationalism have modernized manufacturing.
Very few artists are involved in gemstone carving art. Shri Amrit Sirohiya from Jaipur is the one who is an expert in carving art. He is the only one from his family who choose this art as his other family members are miniature painters and clay moulding artists. He wanted to experiment with new things in the art field itself. Today he is a very well-known artist, won many awards and participated in national as well as international exhibitions. He established The Creation of Gem Stone Carving Institute which trained around hundred young students.
