Round Brilliant-Cut The Round Brilliant Cut dates back to 1919, when Marcel Tolkowsky calculated a formula for proportional diamond design to maximize fire, brilliance and wearability, published as “Diamond Design: A Study of the Reflection and Refraction of Light in Diamond.” A round brilliant diamond can also be called a full cut diamond if it features the cutting standard of 57 or 58 facets.

Pavé Set The technique of pavé (“pa-vay,”) setting involves setting small diamonds closely together with as little visible prongs or metal holding the stones, giving the impression of seamless sparkle. Pavé setting dates back to the 1700s with increased popularity in the 1900s through the present.

Baroque Pearl South sea pearls are the largest of all pearls, typically ranging from 11-16mm. Baroque refers to a pearl which is asymmetrical, either round or oval or button. These two pearls are a highly desirable white color, with pink undertone.

Inlay Inlay is the technique of applying thin gem material or metal to create decorative details on the surface of a base gem, bone, metal or wood material. Marqueterie is inlaid veneers placed together to form a design or picture.

Munnu The Gem Palace One of the largest South Asian empires in history, the Mughal Empire (1526-1857) continues to influence luxury high jewelry design, in direct elements such the 'Tutti-Frutti' carved jewels of Cartier, the sautoir designs of the 1920s and 1970s in particular, as well as necklaces and earrings set with enamel and cabochon gems in the Mughal style in the late 1960s and early 1970s in major French houses such as Van Cleef and Arpels and Boucheron. The Kasliwal family were jewelers to the Mughal Emperors, famed for their enamelwork, and intricate carving and setting of precious stones as well as rose cut diamonds. In 1725, the Kasliwals moved to Jaipur, India from Agra as the crown jewelers to Maharaja Jai Singh, and have remained in Jaipur ever since. The Gem Palace opened in 1923 and immediately became a favorite of royal families, dignitaries and celebrities worldwide, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Princess Diana and Bill Clinton. 8th generation family member Munnu Kasliwal (1958-2012) enjoyed international fame as a jewelry designer, with 6 commissioned collections for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as well as solo exhibitions at Somerset House in London (2006) and at the Kremlin (2014). Munnu The Gem Palace is headed by Munnu's son, jewelry designer Siddharth Kasliwal.
