History of the Object
In the Punjab Province of Pakistan, the craft of making jewellery is done by a specific group of artisans. These people inherit the skills by direct descent from father to son. Gems and semi precious stones are worn not only for fashion purposes but they are also worn under the prescription of astrologers and spiritual leaders to protect the wearer from evil.
