Jai Singh’s wisdom and foresight made Jaipur a centre of attraction for artists and men of genius from all over the world. The Pinkcity become their favourite work place and it also made a name in the sphere of gems and sports particularly Polo. It is also known as a centre of sculpture and Emerald Jewellery. Thus Jaipur is a unique city with a multi-faceted personality.

The internationally famous gem craft of Jaipur has a very old tradition. Skillful craftsmen from Delhi, Agra and Varanasi were among the first to be invited to settle in Jaipur. They not only kept alive but also achieved further excellence in their family skills and traditions some families of jewellers connected with this have helped Jaipur to become one of the main centre in this sphere in the world.This is reflected in the field that a main market is known as Johri Bazar and the chief centre court of the Pinkcity is known as “Badhi Choupar”.


At first place it many appears o be a puzzle how Jaipur become such a great centre of gem and jewellery work and industry particularly Ruby and Emerald of without the raw material of uncut gems or gold being available everywhere in the state. It was the outcome of the wise and foresighted policy followed by the rulers of Jaipur. Jewelers and gem traders from all over the world used to come to Jaipur to sell their wares to the gem lover rulers of Jaipur. However, the ruler made their purchase through the local jewelers. Thus these families had an opportunity to develop and flourish.


There were no banks at that time loans were advanced to local jewelers by the ruler. Patronage was also extended to artisans engaged in gem cutting, engraving and setting gems in gold and silver.It has been the special good fortune of Jaipur that arts, crafts, architecture and fine arts continued to develop here while the rest of India saw unsettled conditions. The Mughal Empire began to disintegrate in the early Eighteenth century. Large areas of India were ravaged by the Pendaris and Thugs. The Marathas, Tipu Sultan and the Osmania rulers of Hyderabad fought each other for supermacy in the sub-continent while the Marathas plundered Agra and Delhi, Jaipur were untouched. The Jaipur state was an area of peace and settled conditions. For about a thousand years the Amer state and Jaipur, Pink City didn’t see any attackers.

Today Jaipur is known all over the world over as a gem centre. It is the world capital for Emerald because eighty percent of all finished emerald work of the world originated form Jaipur. From costly Emerald to Semi- precious and artificial gems, eightyfour kinds of gems are cut and finished here. Gem work of very high quality is done here by craftsmen who use very simple tools, work not in any factory but in barely finished rooms at home, following the family or traditional style of craftsmenship. No machines are used. Often the whole family is engaged in this work.
