The India Jewellery Week or IJW is scheduled to take place in Goa this week on 4th and 5th October 2017. It’s happening at the Vivanta by Taj – Panaji and is curated by Wild Orchid Entertainment.
The show aims to showcase an extraordinary range of jewellery designs and the participation of some of the best talents in this field.
Jewellery design is the art or profession of designing and creating Jewellery. This is one of civilization’s earliest forms of decoration. It dates back at least seven thousand years to the oldest known human societies in Mesopotamia and Egypt. The art has taken many forms throughout the centuries. From the simple beadwork of ancient times to the sophisticated metalworking and gem cutting which is known in the modern day.
Jewellery design has remained relatively constant over the years. The fundamental references, production techniques, and materials from ages ago are still being used to this day. Yet the recent rapid developments in technology and machinery have allowed artists easier alternatives to some of the old methods. These advancements have also transformed the significance and social weight Jewellery holds.
The twentieth century is where changes in the public’s attitude towards jewellery design and function are most apparent. Traditionally, jewels were seen as sacred and precious but after the 1990’s they gained a more materialistic value. After all, jewellery design trends are highly affected by the economic and social states of the time.
