When you think of Jaipur, one of the first things that come to mind is the famous blue pottery. And one of the most famous creators of blue pottery is Kripal Singh Shekhawat. Born in 1922, he's been credited with reviving the art and helping it become what it is today. His works can be found all over India, including in museums. Kripal Singh Shekhawat started Kripal Kumbh as an outlet for his wares, and the team has been trained by him. Both classical pottery designs and more modern designs are on offer. Another recommended place to buy blue pottery is Neerja, particularly if you're interested in new designs.

The Gem Palace on M.I. Road is among the most reputable places to shop for jewelry in Jaipur. It's been in existence for eight generations. You'll discover everything from vintage pieces to exclusive creations there. Although the exterior of the Gem Palace is unassuming, its interior has been liked to Aladdin's Cave. There are magnificent pieces on display, which once belonged to the royals. The reason being is that the shop is owned by the family of jewelers that once served them. Do be prepared for snooty staff, and to empty your wallet if you choose to buy anything. Looking to purchase gemstones cheaply? Head to Gopalji ka Rasta, the famous gem street in Johari Bazaar in the Old City. However, it's risky as vendors are known to sell colored glass as gems there.

  • Where: Shop 348, MI Road, Jaipur.
