Today I want to show you how talented and imaginative Nepali jewellers are and what they are really capable of creating. This unique piece made by RB Diamond Jewellers was featured at the Jewelry Show in Kathmandu a couple of months ago. The peacock bra/blouse is made of 9-carat gold and decorated with a total of 3000 precious and semi-precious stones, including diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, pearls, kyanite and aquamarine. The blouse is held by the pearl strings which are connected at the back and attached to a gold flower. It took about a year to be completed. I have no idea how comfortable it feels wearing this thing but what I know is that it looks stunning.
