Artisans from the region of Punjab hold world acclaim for the outstanding workmanship of their hand-carved wooden furniture and decor. For centuries, the Punjabi wood-carver has created artistic and graceful masterpieces. During British rule in India, Punjabi craftsmen gained such an enviable reputation that they were recruited to England to work in English workshops and teach at English universities. Today, artisans in the village of Chinyot in Punjab have preserved the ancient Punjabi tradition of wood-carving. The Rosewood Handmade Wooden Jewelry Box is a humble expression of the marvelous quality, workmanship, and design of contemporary Punjabi wood carving.

Growing up, you may have seen all those little rituals your elders do. You may also have witnessed a million times how your grandmother would frequently arrange and examine her collection of jewelry affectionately in her antique wooden jewelry box and have been surprised as well to find out how warm and with great deal of caution she did it. One could say that a beautiful wooden jewelry box is a staple in keeping collections of jewelry. But have you ever thought of wood, not the usual gold and silver bracelets and necklaces, being the jewelry contained inside your grandmother’s jewelry box?
