The Stone Drops rims are one of our design signatures. The number of stones used in the Stone Drops’ rims are aligned with the Hemachandra Numbers. Acharya Hemachandra, an 11th century Indian scholar discovered the golden ratio in the year 1202, 50 years before Fibonacci. The Hemachandra numbers can be seen in many of nature’s most exquisite designs - in the simple petals of a daisy, the elegant compositions of Sanskrit poetry, and in the dynamic rhythms of the tango. Our Stone Drops rims pay homage to the eternal and exquisite rhythms of nature.
One of our signature motifs is of the Kesuda flower (Butea Monosperma).This beautiful flower is said to be between 600 million and 1.2 billion years old. The Kesuda doesn’t blossom - it explodes into bursts of flame-colored petals, that evoke the image of a massive fire when they are scattered on the ground. This is why it is often referred to as the “Flame of the Forest.” Indians consider the Kesuda to be sacred and affectionately refer to it as “treasurer of the gods”. These pastel blossoms elicit feelings of tranquility and calm, while the vibrantly hued petals transmit confidence and power. Aranyani’s team of embroiders and painters create each one-of-a-kind Kesuda design, in the spirit of this flower’s exquisite, natural beauty.
