Before moving to Jaipur and opening The Gem Palace, the Kasliwal family designed jewelry for the Mughal emperors who reigned over India for over three centuries.  During this period, a uniquely Mughal style of art, architecture and jewelry developed which fused Indian and Persian influences.  The elaborate Meenakari enameling, traditional rose cut diamonds and Kundun inlaid rubies, sapphires and emeralds that are characteristic of Mughal jewelry can be seen in the traditional jewelry still worn at Indian weddings.  Generations of families have come to The Gem Palace for the finest examples of traditional Mughal jewelry.  Preserving the techniques to create these pieces was a passion for Munnu, who started schools to train new generations of craftsmen to keep traditional skills alive. And today Siddharth continues to support the preservation of this work.
