We know the people of Jaipur has an undeniable love for art and fashion, and we believe JAS serves the right purpose by showcasing the talent of Jaipurites to the world, all while giving the people of Jaipur a chance to experience jewellery differently. The choice of items and the amount of inspiration is going to be simply iconic, this is an exclusive chance for Jaipurites to experience jewellery, art, and fashion, from all over the city. Rather than going in a shop with limited designs and a particular design language, you get to experience and explore everything under one roof, and this is what makes JASa one of a kind opportunity.
