The art of gemstone carving in India is a very ancient tradition. 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. 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.
Gemstone idols are carved with care and are intricately decorated. A lot of skills and patience are required to carve a small piece of gemstone.
