Close your eyes and picture this; you stand in a gleaming room as a conveyor sends gems of every colour imaginable, ready for you to pluck a glistening stone as it floats on by. Sounds like a surreal day-dream? Well at Harrods this has become a reality. While conveyor belts and bars are usually associated with the menial day-to-day, Amrapali, one of the world’s leading specialists in coloured gem stones, has transformed these things to the height of luxury. In July 2019, the one of a kind Gem Bar opened at Harrods, ready to tempt its visitors with a seemingly infinite rainbow of the world’s finest jewels.

Originating in Jaipur, the gemstone capital of the world, Amrapali spearheads this new opening; transporting the rich cultural heritage of luxury and prestige from India to London like never before. Whether you visit with a desire to purchase or simply to marvel at these wonders of nature, this theatrical experience will certainly leave you with stars in your eyes – or should we say gems?

Of course, to truly encounter the famed jewels of India, you must travel to the heart of the world’s gem capital; Jaipur. India Beat has spent years exploring the bazaars and boutiques of Jaipur, cultivating relationships with the city’s jewellers to bring you the best experience possible. Embark on our Jaipur Shopping Tour, curated by Victoria Dyer and recommended by Condé Nast Traveler Magazine, which follows a path through the very best shops that Jaipur has to offer, including our personal favourite – the Gem Palace.
