The various splendors of Banaras captured in Kaasyam collections include:
Banarasi Saree Collection
Banarasi sarees are among the finest sarees in India and are known for their gold and silver brocade or zari, fine silk, and opulent embroidery. Few of the exquisite gold and diamond sets are inspired by the detailing and the intricate craftsmanship of the Banarasi saree.
Gulabi Meenakari Collection
It is one of the rarest crafts in India that is practiced in the by-lanes of Banaras, near Gai Ghat. This art was brought to the city of Varanasi by Persian enamellists during the Mughal era around the early 17th century. The word ‘meena’ is the feminine form of the Persian word ‘Minoo’ and means ‘heaven’. It refers to the azure colour of heaven. The jewellery pieces inspired by this art form are vibrant, unique and a perfect adornment for the woman of today.
Kashi Vishwanath Temple Collection
This temple collection is based on one of the most famous Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva. The structure of the Mandir is composed of three parts. The first comprises a spire on the Mandir of Lord Vishwanath or Mahadeva. The second is a gold dome and the third is the gold spire atop Lord Vishwanath carrying a flag and a trident. These intricacies have been added to the beautiful necklace sets that are inspired by this temple.
Ancient Gateways Collection
Banaras is a visual delight to everyone with an eye for detail. Be it the fascinating old narrow lanes, or indigenous house structures, or magnificently engraved temples; what makes the first sight of the city most welcoming is the intricately carved ancient gateways. A symbol of divinity brought alive with the carving of lotus buds have been captured in the necklace sets crafted by us too.
Ganga Aarti & Ghats Collection
Ghats in Banaras are riverfront steps leading to the banks of the River Ganges. The city has 88 ghats. Our collection inspired by Ganga aarti and the ghats is a visual treat and an ode to the divinity of these ghats.
Ramnagar Fort Collection
Divinity is one of the most passionate expressions of love. And Ramnagar Fort is one such manifestation of love for beauty. Carved in the Mughal style, this royal palace is the living testament of how beauty can be found in every aspect of life and that is exactly what we have tried to incorporate in the jewellery pieces inspired by the Ramnagar Fort.
Jantar Mantar Collection
Banaras is a place of many hidden treasures. And Jantar Mantar is one of them. Built-in the year 1737 by Maharaja Jai Singh, it’s an architectural marvel that’s as timeless and as divine as the holy city. A convergence of everything spiritual and cultural. The necklace inspired by this marvel is a standout piece and is sure to be loved by any gold enthusiast.
