"I am especially proud of my Jaipur line, which features gemstones inlaid upon unique designs that stylistically represent my beloved hometown."
"Hello, my name is Mahavir and I was born and brought up in the beautiful and historical city of Jaipur. The scenery is beautiful, and the historical monuments and warm people are what make this city so special.
"I studied commerce, but ever since I was a child, I have always been interested in creating new things. This creative instinct is what has helped me come this far. Designing jewelry and learning about gemstones has been my passion from a young age. What began as a hobby eventually became my vocation.
"Feeling confident enough to venture out on my own, I started my own workshop, specializing in gemstones. It was a tough job initially, but after soon receiving accolades for my work, it became smooth sailing. Later, I launched my own jewelry collections, and I have been doing so ever since.
"I design all my jewelry, and I thoroughly enjoy my work. My workshop is set up in such a way that I can work on handcrafted designs and do casting as well.
"My designs are traditional and contemporary. I am especially proud of my Jaipur line, which features gemstones inlaid upon unique designs that stylistically represent my beloved hometown. In addition, I've continued my work with semi-precious stones, which I cut and facet at the workshop. At this point in my career, I spend most of my time designing, and several artisans here help me transform my ideas into reality.
"I believe designing jewelry is one of the most creative art forms. One can design an endless amount of jewelry. Each new creation inspires me to create more.
"I love the way Novica works to promote artisans from around the world. It gives me great pleasure to be associated with them. I always try to provide customers with my very best, and I believe in establishing long-term relationships with customers. Kindly let us know your views about our designs. Your valuable comments about our work are highly appreciated."
When I purchased an amethyst version of ""Azure Leaves"" for my son's girlfriend for Christmas, I thought it was so beautiful that I bought a blue topaz version of it for my own birthday. They are both stunning pieces: such a simple and elegant design. Thank you.
This is a lovely and comfortable ring and very well represented by the photograph. I enjoy wearing it and it is one of my favorites! Thank you Mohair.
My ""Dawn Dew"" earrings are gorgeous- what I expected and more. I'm impressed with the packaging too. Thank you Mahavir!
My ring ""Aquatic Allure"" is so gorgeous! I love it! I can tell you that in the photo it is beautiful but not as beautiful as on my finger! Thank you! What an artist!! Thank you Mahavir! You are truly an artist!
ring - the stone sat a bit too high and it was flat. a lower crown and a cabochon instead and i would have been in love! the pendant is wonderful. so well made, the fullness of the stone, the silver work, it can go anywhere - well, maybe not to the supermarket or on a hike, but fom lunch to a late night sip of the bubblies, i just love it. this could have sold for a lot more .. think about it, Mahavir!
This ring is a show stopper!! I was stunned by its beauty
I had these shipped directly to my sister, so I didn't see them. Yet, my sister said she loved them!
Large, gorgeous, and love very much. Thank you for sharing your talents.
I LOVE this ring. Outstanding quality and design, and the beautiful box it came in was complete with a postcard photo of the artist and a handwritten note thanking me for my purchase! An outstanding customer experience!
My ""Claret Tears"" earrings arrived today, and they exceeded expectations. They are just lovely. And what the online photos cannot convey is how they sparkle and flash color with every movement. They were also carefully, and beautifully, packaged. Thank you so much for your artistry.
The ring I ordered was the "" Malachite 3 stone ring"" Princess Trio, I am in love with it excellent quality, you can tell his soul has made this ring.. It came in a beautiful box, which I will keep forever, and the shipping was super fast. again thank you kindly, will be ordering again.
I received two of the waterfall necklaces! It is GORGEOUS!! I was the envy of my receptionists when I showed them. I am so pleased with this wonderful buy. You are my favourite Novica artist and there is many more I plan to buy. Thank you. Mahavir. Your talent makes many people happy around the world! ??
I bought the ""Morning Radiance"" earrings a few months back. I was excited to receive them and was anticipating their arrival. When I opened the box, they beyond exceeded my expectation! There was so much more fire and radiance to the moonstones, that the picture hardly does their beauty justice. They are by far one of my favorite pieces of jewelry, and I will definitely be returning to check out your future collections.
Mahavir - I love your artwork and design. It is so creative and beautiful! I will keep watching your jewelry, and hope to buy more from you in the future.
I was so pleasantly surprised by the craftsmanship and the quality of these earrings! I am very particular about jewelry and seldom find anything I want to purchase. These earrings are a tiny work of art. They are much larger and more substantial than I had imagined without being too much. The metal work around the stone is exquisite. I definitely recommend this purchase.
My Golden Serpent, garnet earrings arrived yesterday and they are more beautiful than I even expected. What a joy as they are so beautifully crafted and more lovely than even the picture could convey. I was so pleased with the very beautiful gift box and the thank you card that came with them. Thank you for your beautiful work. I will so enjoy wearing these lovely earrings. You are a true artist. Thank you for your work and inspiration.
I love my chandelony ring; it is lovelier than the pictures. Thank you for this high quality and beautiful piece of jewelry!
The heart shaped peridot on the ""Romantic"" bracelet I ordered for my Mother is spectacular!! It was the perfect present for loving mom! Her birthday is in August, and she will be able to wear her birthday hearts every day! Thank you for the unusual, beautifully matched and vibrant stones of peace, healing and compassion brought together in a circle of balance.
Thank you for designing the lovely rose quartz cuff bracelet 'Love Bud'. It's gorgeous! It looks beautiful on and every time I wear it I receive many compliments. I have large (8 inch) wrists and it is hard to find bracelets that fit. I wish more artisans would make cuff bracelets in the 7 to 8 inch range.
I bought the ""Modern Trio"" Ring - Modern Rose Quartz Ring with Peridot and Amethyst It's simply gorgeous! Even prettier in person. The peridot and amethyst are a little lighter but work VERY well with gorgeous Rose Quartz. This is SUCH a nicely made ring. I like both big, chunky rings and delicate rings. My husband commented right away that this ring was unique in that it had the look of a pretty ""chunky"" ring but also somehow managed to look very delicate on my hand. I LOVE it! Thank you so much!!
Mahavir's ""Flight"" necklace with iolite stones is superb. The design is feminine, yet daring, and it is lightweight and comfortable to wear. The color of the stones is intense and clear, not the greyed tone one sees often in modern iolite pieces. The workmanship is outstanding.
Mahavir, I absolutely love the moonstone stackable rings I ordered. Your packaging is beautiful also. Although the rings said size 6, they measured a size 5 and I couldn't fit them on my finger so I had to return them. I really wanted them to fit. Sad.
Even more beautiful than the picture shown for my Light Amber. There are lovely light reflections and color in the amber he chose for this piece of jewelry. The craftsmanship is superb. Many thanks to Mahavir.
This beautiful “Peace Blossom” necklace was birthday gift for a very special friend. It arrived yesterday in a very nice box with a note from Mahavir. It certainly made my friend’s day. Thank you Mahavir, for this beautiful piece of art.
We bought the Lapis lazuli pendant necklace 'Star Shower' for my mother in law, and it looks stunning. Beautiful piece of jewelry, and the stone truly shines. Well done, Mahavir.
Hello Mahavir, I love my ring! It so unique. What I like best about your work, is that it is different from everyone else. I like all the jewelry I see. Thank you so much for sharing your talent!
I am so very glad that I found the NOVICA web site. I have been enjoying all of the many pieces of jewelry that I have purchased from all the wonderful members and craftsmen. I must say they are all amazing people and I am enjoying each and every one of them. Their skills are so amazing, and their different arts are wonderful. I love the abilities and the final products that I buy are so well presented. I will keep buying all the different pieces of jewelry and all of my friends keep asking me where I get my gifts. I tell them on NOVICA,s website so they can see for themselves what beautiful things that I buy. My Best Regards, Sarah Blankley -
I just love my set of Onix/ Pink Quartz flower. Is so beautiful and the work are masterpieces. I love my jewelry. I crazy for Novica. Anything I buy is spectacular and so different and unique. Keep your sills sharp and your inspirations fresh! From Maribel Gonzalez
Hi, Mahavir. I received my ""India Blue"" rings today and the craftsmanship is very beautiful, but so are all of your designs. I absolutely LOVE the color of the blue topaz against the gold vermeil setting. You are by far my most favorite artisan. Your rings get lots of compliments and I love the boxes you use to send my jewelry in. They are gorgeous, too. I hope this message makes you smile and that your family and you are in very good health. Take care, my friend. Vicki T
Thank you for the beautiful Prasiolite Solitare ring. The pairing of the stone and setting created a very stunning piece!
Hi again, Mahavir. I also wanted to thank you so much for the ""Enthralling Jaipur"" blue topaz & peridot cocktail ring. It is truly a very beautiful piece and I can see why you are so proud of your ""Jaipur"" line of jewelry. I love this ring so much; the stones you select are so gorgeous and they just glitter in the light so beautifully. I am so glad I ordered it from you as well as the ""Glamorous Trio"" ring I just reviewed for you. Some of the pieces I would love to order just don't come in my ring size, but I am ""following"" you on NOVICA and plan to keep an eye on what you have to offer since you are an exceptional artisan. Sir, I hope this review finds you and your family in good health and I wish only that you have the greatest success in your association with National Geographic. Thank you again for being who you are. Warmly, Vicki T.
My Dearest Mahavir, I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful ""Glamorous Trio"" ring you sent me. I received it yesterday and the photo just does not even show how gorgeous that ring truly is. I feel very lucky to have found you as an artisan and I am absolutely amazed at the size of the prasiolite (green amethyst) and amethyst stones you selected for this gorgeous ring. I hope to be able to order more of your beautiful jewelry in the near future and I'm very happy to be following you on NOVICA. You deserve to have great success as your eye for beauty and terrific craftsmanship is unparalleled in anything I have ever seen. Thank you so much for being who you are and I love your smile as much as your jewelry. Good luck to you, sir. You are the best! Warmly, Vicki T
I am impressed with the ring ""Mumbai Rose"". It's so tender and beautiful like first love. Thank you, Mahavir, for this wonder!
I bought the citrine Elegance ring from Mahavir and I absolutely love it. I was told that by wearing citrine, I would attract abundance into my life. I certainly have received an abundance of compliments on this absolutely stunning ring! The craftsmanship is exquisite and the stone is a lovely, warm lemon yellow. Thank you, Mahavir, for bringing beauty into my life. Please continue creating your masterpieces.
I purchased a set of 5 sterling silver stack rings ""Versatility"" on the 5 March 2014 and received them yesterday. I was most impressed by the efficient service. I was very excited when I opened the package, the rings were beautifully gift-boxed, the rings are 1 of 2 gifts for my mum for her birthday, both purchased on the Novica website. They are elegant and very beautiful and my compliments and gratitude to you Mahavir. I know my mum is going to love them and wear them with much happiness. You are immensely creative and talented and I am honoured that we now own one of your pieces. May God bless you abundantly and inspire your creativity to even greater heights. With wam greetings and best wishes from Aarthi, South Africa.
Mahavir, Thanks again for another lovely piece of your jewelry. The garnet bracelet and the lapis cocktail ring. Ruby Gulfport Ms.
I just want to say THANK YOU FOR SUCH A BEAUTIFUL BRACELET. I love it. It is very very pretty. Thank You. Ruby form Ms.
Dearest Mahavir, I received my silver and moonstone 'perfection' ring today. I was very apprehensive when oppening the box as I am extremely picky about my jewelry. I unpacked it and opened the beautiful bag containing my ring...my breath was taken away! The name is correct, it truely is perfection. This ring is absolutley stunning. The picture does not do it justice. I am using this as my engagement ring and am proud to display this beautiful piece it on my finger. I am also beyond glad I found you and your wonderful talent! I cannot thank you enough! Regards, Adel Vyhnanek
Mahavir thank you very much for the beautiful ""yellow love attraction"". actually i have purchased 2 from you. the first was a birthday present for my fiance. it took her breath away with its beauty. the second was to replace the first because someone felt that they deserved its beauty more than my fiance. i love seeing it on her finger and when we hold hands its rested next to another novica purchased ring on my hand crafted by caine. just as beautiful in its own way
What a beautiful piece of jewelry. My compliments on the quality and craftsmanship. Although I bought it as a Christmas gift for a friend, I was sorely tempted to keep it for myself. Keep up the good work.
I received my India Mystery necklace today and I LOVE it! It's absolutely gorgeous. The picture doesn't do any justice. I will definitely buy more things made by Mahavir. In fact, I'm looking at them right now!
Hi Mahavir. My rings arrived the other day and they are just beautiful! I love them! I wasn't expecting the gorgeous box they came in either, so that was a lovely surprise! Thank you so much! Tracie
The Prasiolite Pendant is gorgeous. I was pleased to see the rare gem available in a pendant, and even more pleased to see it in person. It sparkles with positive energy. Thank you!
I received the lemon duet earring by Mahavir and am very pleased. I love the packaging and the thank you card is a nice personal touch. The earrings have lots of sparkle and look amazing on. They were light weight on the ear and I will get lots of wear out of these earrings. I have a lot of Mahavir pieces in my wish list and hope to collect more!
I just received my ""Iridescent Leaves"" pendant yesterday and it took my breath away! I wanted a moonstone and chose this pendant because I liked the design. It is so much prettier than the pictures and I am so happy I ordered it! The labradorite stones of the leaves are exquisite. I don't think that color can be captured in a picture, because in the pictures they looked brownish. They are actually opalescent, bluish, and luminous - so pretty. The design of the pendant is lovely and very unique. It is a piece I can wear every day with casual attire or dressy. I highly recommend this piece and I thank you Mahavir for your beautiful work!
I got my Luner Eclipe earrings yesterday. The earrings were beautiful. The workmenship was incredible, the size of them were perfect for me. Thank you Aoy for my beautiful earring. Letitia Reading PA
I want to thank you for your moonstone solitaire ring - Asymmetry. Its simple elegance is perfect. I lost my rings that I used to wear daily some time ago and have been searching for a ring that would feel at home on my hand and in this piece of jewelry I have found it. I truly never want to take it off!
The ring I ordered arrived today, and it is more beautiful than it appeared on the website. The craftsmanship is wonderful and the stone is much larger and of much brighter color than I dared hope. Thank you!
All I can say is, ""WOW!"" The stones in his Labradorite and moonstone necklace, 'Iridescent Leaves' are stunning: radiant and very iridescent like I've never seen before. Also, it's much bigger than I expected. A necklace like this should go for well over $100. I highly recommend this stunning piece!
Hello from Luxembourg, Europe I received my lapiz lazuli necklace this very moment by FEDEX. I am truly amazed by this gorgeous piece of art. It is beautiful! There was a handwritten postcard from Mahavir, which I really loved and I am thinking of ordering again, soon :-)) I'm going out tonight so guess what piece of jewelry I'm going to wear :-)! Thank you so much. Keep up this awesome work! I wish you all the best. Very warm regards Muriel Arbogast
I just received my moonstone ring ""Perfection"" . I have never written a comment before for anything, but when I saw my ring, you can say I just had too. I'm sorry to say, but those pictures didn't do this ring justice. It's even more beautiful than I anticipated. The packaging was great and the free jewelry box was perfect. I even got a postcard from Mahavir. He wrote his thanks in his language and of course wrote it so I can understand. I thought that was very personal. Thank you Mahavir!! You're right, its is ""Perfection"" ~Maggie
Your sterling silver work is great! I just received your ""Secret Chamber"" pendant in the mail and I'm wearing it as I write this. It is lovely and shines so bright. Thank you!
I love the two rings by Mahavir that I purchased: the Amethyst Perfect Petals and the Lapis Lazuli Whisper. They are so beautifully crafted and so delicately made. They really surpassed my expectations. The photographs do not do them justice! Thank you!
Mahavir, Thank-you for the beautiful ring and the fast service! It is obvious that you love your work....it comes through in your craft. I have collected some beautiful rings from all over the word, but this ring (the Princess Trio, with malachite stones) is now my favorite! You are a superb artist, and I feel so lucky to have found you! Best wishes..
I love my peridot ""adventurous"" ring! It is dainty yet unique enough to make an impression. I love that it looks just a bit handmade- I was looking for something that didn't look mass-produced. Shipping was faster than I expected, and the artist even included a hand-written thank you postcard. I am very happy with my purchase!
I have always dreamed to wear amber. Today I received my beautiful ring. I love it. Thank you Mahavir for making my dreams come true.
My amber solitaire ring arrived and it is gorgeous. The workmanship is detailed and the color of the amber is a deep orange hue. I am very satisfied with this item.
Thank you Mahavir and Novica, I was truly delighted when I opened the box and saw my beautiful pendant. I was amazed at the detailed packaging and personalized message on the postcard. I adore my pendant and will wear with great joy.
I just received cherished secrets and I love it. I can also wear it as two necklaces. The locket is like a work of art-really beautifully done. The silver and lapis chain is a great piece to wear with jeans and diamond stud earrings-also from India. Thank you, and best wishes!
I just received my Citrine Elegance ring and it is beautiful! The design is unique and exquisite and the stone is very meaningful to me as it symbolizes personal power in the third chakra. Thank you, Mahavir, for creating this beautiful piece that is exactly what I had been searching for! I will definitely be back for more! Kind regards, Sharon
I have just ordered the ""Citrine Elegance"" ring from Mahavir and it looks just stunning in the photo. I have been searching the internet as well as local Indian jewelry stores to find a ring like this with no success....the Novica website came up in a broad Google search for ""Indian rings,"" so I guess I was looking for the perfect ring using a description that was too detailed. I am looking so forward to receiving this ring and will post when I get it, but I'm certain I will be in love with it! I wanted citrine to represent the third Chakra and I really wanted a ring that was made in India. Thank you so much for making my dream ring available!
Truly beautiful handcrafting. Mahavir's designs are immensely tasteful. The golden ring that I received today appears as if crafted for a pharaoh's finger. I wish that Mahavir and his colleagues live many fruitful days of artistic creation!
I ordered Mahavir's ammonite and citrine pendant necklace ""Whispering Sea"" from India. It arrived at my home in the USA in 7 days. Mahavir is a talented artist. I am delighted by his craftsmanship and service. I life by the sea and now wear a bit of it!
I just got my 'India Blue' ring today, it is one of the most beautiful rings I have ever seen, seriously. The blue topaz is awesome and the craftsmanship on the ring is great. Thank you for the nice postcard from Jaipur too. Keep up the great work. Many thanks!!
Absolutely beautiful Thank you for sharing your great talent Packaged lovely and received very quickly Thank you so much
thank you mahavir for a beautiful elegance moon ring , i just love it, the card was wonderful, Thank you , anna griffin
I can really recommend this artist! The necklace I ordered (called Flight) was really beautiful with clear Amethyst stones. It is a unique piece of jewellery in good quality. Pretty silver details. The receiver of the gift loved the necklace, thank you so much Mahavir! From Norway :)
Mahavir, I have just received the most beautiful ring i could imagine (sparkling mist). The photos on Novica did not do it justice.. It's perfect and it has such a positive energy that just seems to emanate from it. Already this ring has sentimental value and love attached to it as i give it to my partner. I am humbled to be able to give such a precious thing to someone who means so much to me. You are a true artist. Thank you so much.
I always wanted a big silver ring, or a turquoise ring. But with the Princess Trio Turquoise Cocktail ring I got both. Not only is this ring stunningly beautiful, but also it's so skillfully made, makes me so happy to show it off. I am enjoying my first purchase from Mahavir and I am looking forward to many more.
I purchased your ""Adventurous"" peridot ring and received it today in the mail. I am so pleased with it! Peridot is my birthstone and I had long been searching for something unique and beautiful that I can wear with anything. This ring exactly what I've been looking for. Thank you!
I purchased the Princess Trio cocktail ring on 2/10 and received it on 2/15. First of all the shipping was quick. Package came from New Delhi to NY. The ring is...I don't even have the words. Gorgeous is an engagement ring, but this is different. I has so much individuality and culture. It is really beautiful. I've received compliments since the day it arrived and when I don't get compliments, I see people staring. It's beautiful.
I ordered the Moonstone Perfection ring for my daughter, and it is beautiful. Mahavir takes great care in his work and letting the true beauty of the stone shine through. The ring came beautifully packaged in a lovely ring box. There was also a handwritten postcard that makes a customer feel appreciated.
I ordered the 'Perfect Petals' citrine flower ring as a gift, and she loved it so much! It is a beautifully crafted ring, just the right size, and she was so excited to receive it. Thank you for this beautiful item.
Mahavir is a true artist! I was impressed with the necklace when I noticed the picture on the website however when I received it my wife was in speechless. She love the necklace you created and I would recommend you to any one looking for a special gift. Thank you!
I have to say this is one of the most beautiful rings I own and I have many. When I opened the box the stone was gleaming. It is so large and perfect. Mahavir, the detailed silver working is beautiful. I am very pleased and I did not expect to receive this beauty so soon.
I received my peridot/sterling ""Reverie"" ring today and am very pleased with it, so I wanted to thank you and let you know how special this ring is to me. I ordered it as a remembrance of a loved one whose birthday is in August; peridot is the August birthstone. Thank you for helping me to keep his memory alive in this enduring and beautiful way; and I wish all prosperity and success to you and your family.
My beautiful ""Circle of Light"" ring and ""Lemon Twirl"" pendant necklace, both crafted with citrine gemstones, arrived this morning. These are truly lovely works of art that I will enjoy wearing for a long time. Best wishes to you and your family from a very happy customer!
I received the Golden Serpent earrings yesterday and I was just overwhelmed with their stunning beauty! I tried them on and felt like an Indian princess. Thank you Mr. Mahavir for creating them. Your work is beautiful.
I received my bracelet and it is BEAUTIFUL!!!! I am so pleased with the quality and workmanship, I can not wait to order again!! This artist's work is amazing!!!! Thank-You so much for my new treasure! Jami L. Ham
Hello ! Yesterday I have received my package and I am so happy that it came to me faster than I expected. I have received beautiful, very stylish , romantic and feminine Garnet waterfall earrings ,""Teardrops"" .I would like to present them on myself as soon as I take the picture. I am very impressed with artist Mahavir's unique works and happy that I can contribute to this unique art of jewelry craftsmanship. I have also received a postcard from India which I cannot read it yet ,but I will as soon as I get a chance to ask my friends to interpret it for me. I appreciate so much. Thank you , Yvonne
I just received my garnet waterfall earrings. They are even more beautiful than I expected. The quality is excellent. Exquisite!
i ordered earrings for my wife as a gift for her birthday. The earrings were moonstone ""ANTICIPATION"" , she was delighted at how beautiful they are. They are truly a piece of art designed by a talented artist . I thank you for making my wife's birthday a very happy one.
The Floral Garnet ""Rose Passion"" ring I purchased from Mahavir is Absolutely Beautiful! The Silver Rose was flawlessly designed and bright, as is the intense color of the Garnet center he used. I am very pleased, as this was one of my first purchases from a Novica artist. Keep up the great work! I will be back. Also, the gift box is amazingly beautiful and a treasure in itself! Thanks!
I have been searching for a moonstone ring for two months, having previously been disappointed by either out of stock items, or products that were made with inferior materials. When Mahavir's moonstone solitaire ring 'perfection' arrived in the mail, I nearly cried. It was indeed perfection! I wanted a ring which allowed the beautiful iridescence of an Indian moonstone to shine on its own, and Mahavir has crafted the best one I have seen. This ring has been worth the wait. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I was looking for the ""perfect present"" for one of my sisters, and decided to check out the birthstone items. I saw ""Sunshine"" and knew right away that it was perfect for her, it would fit her sunny, bubbly personality. The look on her face when she opened it was wonderful, she was so touched and amazed that it came all the way from India. Thank you!
""Cool and Fresh"" is a delicate, delightful necklace which has been crafted with love. Thank you.
I saw a citrine necklace several years ago and liked it but for whatever reason, didn't order it. Recently for some unexplained reason I got a burning desire to have that necklace. Of course, I couldn't remember where I had seen it so I got on the internet and for days, I scoured dozens of web sites looking through citrine jewelry. When I came across your 'Sunshine', it took my breath away. That's the one! I was literally shaking as I ordered it. I received it just a while ago and I could not be more thrilled. It is gorgeous! The craftsmanship is perfection. And the box it came in is precious. I've never been more satisfied with anything I have ever ordered before. Thank you Mahavir!

I just received my ""Love Bud"" bracelet. It arrived in a lovely jewelry box. When I saw the bracelet it almost took my breath away. I didn't expect the size of stone nor bracelet dimension to be the size that it was. The workmanship exceeds my expectations. Thank you so much Mahavir for your artistry.
I received my garnet and silver ring today and I love it. It is called, ""Love Talks"" and getting this ring for Valentines day couln't be better. I am thrilled with the design, construction, and quality of this ring. Thank you, Mahavir - Hare Krishna.
