Grandaughter of Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala Behind International Jewelry Brand ‘Manjusha’

Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala

San Francisco, CA Nearly ninety years ago, fame met fortune when Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala commissioned Cartier to turn his abundant cache of loose stones into a ceremonial necklace for his crown jewel collection. This necklace later came to be called the ‘Patiala Necklace,’ and is considered to be one of the most spectacular pieces of jewelry ever created. Completed in 1928, it contained 1000 carats in 2930 diamonds.

Jyotsna Singh, the gifted granddaughter of Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala, inherited her grandfather’s passion for jewelry, and today carries forth the royal legacy with her international brand of jewelry, Manjusha. Jyotsna’s fascination with jewelry started at an early age, as she was exposed to the magnificence of the royal family jewels. Drawing on her rich family heritage, Jyotsna blends generations of exquisite intricate design in materials that make them more wearable and affordable.

Manjusha, which literally means ‘treasure chest of jewels,’ presents collections of unique fusion jewelry that combine the majesty of the old with the intensity of the new. Manjusha is inspired by the beauty of the royal Jadau designs, jewelry reminiscent of a bygone era of royal palaces and princely extravagance. Its versatile beauty is still relevant as it intertwines the classic in the hues of contemporary design. Manjusha is a unique and exciting collection of fusion jewelry, its classic art deco style complimented by intricately crafted oriental motifs using semi-precious stones set in gold-plated silver.

The Manjusha Spring Summer collection includes many statement pieces in a myriad of colors that capture the imagination, showcasing bold string combinations of aquamarine, citrine, rotile, amethyst, lapis, turquoise, carnelian and more. The collection also uses the soft colors of rose quartz, aventurine, green amethyst and pearls. Her inspiration this season came from the use of beautiful stones that carry strong vibrations to suit all energies.

Jyotsna prefers to work with semi-precious stones because of the variety of colors available to her. Using semi-precious stones also allows her to keep her pieces affordable. She has always been drawn to color, design and stones. Working with the stones is a spiritual experience for me.  I have been told that my pieces show the love and passion I have for what I do.”

Jyotsna showcases her jewelry internationally at private shows and at in-store trunk shows around the world. Her jewelry is appropriate for all occasions, and complements both Indian and Western attire, as well as all ages and lifestyles.

A collection of jewelry from Manjusha is now available for sale in Sollano 16 in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and the museum store of the San Francisco Asian Art Museum.
