Shalini Kasliwal, eighth-generation jeweler, designer, and CEO of Jaipur, India– and New York–based jewelry house Sanjay Kasliwal of the Gem Palace has just unveiled nine (nine!) new collections with distinct themes that embrace shimmering, Mughal-inflected goldwork paired with colored stones and lavish cascades of diamonds.
As a direct response to COVID and retail causalities such as Jeffery’s, Sanjay Kasliwal made the strategic decision to expand its e-commerce offerings with a dramatically increased selection of product retailing in the $3,000– $7,000 range.
Meanwhile, the house also reports landmark pandemic-era sales of two high jewelry pieces: the famed Marella Agnelli necklace and a $250,000 necklace, the sale of which happened on Instagram (welcome to 2020!).
Of the nine new collections, Shalini Kasliwal shared with JCK that she feels a deep connection to Rainbow Eclipse and Oceanya, because of the special relationship her late father had with opals. And many of the design concepts in the Rainbow Eclipse and Oceanya collections originated with her father.
The Briolette collection is likewise dear to her heart because it reflects a quintessential Gem Palace way of cutting diamonds.
Inspirations for the other collections include nature, particularly the sky, the desert of Rajasthan, glaciers, and lush forests.
See examples at top and below. The Stardust stud earrings? A stellar option for holiday gifting!
