Gem Palace
Buy / Do

Gem Palace’s reputation invokes expressions of awe in both locals and travellers alike. It is the oldest jeweller in Jaipur — the jewellers to kings and queens — and houses some of the most extravagant gems you’ll ever lay eyes on. The grand yet very traditional showroom is bursting at the seams with jewellery and accessories of all shapes and forms. There are decades-old diamond necklaces and photographs of international and National royalty, who’ve visited the palace, in the same room. A trip there will take you back in time; we dare say you’ll find yourself lost in daydreams of gleaming jewels on Rajasthani royals and Russian Czars alike.

Pro tip: Apart from jewellery, you’ll also find artefacts, curios even jewel-encrusted swords and golf clubs in the showroom.
