There is something timeless about traditional Indian jewelry. You might be lucky enough to have inherited a prized piece, encrusted in a rainbow of exquisite gems. The most besotted style of Indian jewelry is the ‘Navratna’. Navratna translates to ‘9 gems’, and this special combination of precious stones has a deep-rooted cultural and astrological significance in the Indian subcontinent.

Highly sought after and often too steeply priced thanks to the weight of gold each piece is based on, Navratna jewelry has been worn by royalty, the rich and famous, and ever so often seen worn by Bollywood sirens in epic movies.

Want to own a piece of prized Navratna yourself? Brace yourselves Dubai, Numaish Lifestyle Exhibitions is hosting a very special jewelry exhibition entitled Art Karat. The 2-day event will showcase Navratna – The Gemstone Collection by celebrated jewelry designer Asha Kamal Modi.
