The number of stones used in the Stone Drops’ rims are aligned with the Hemachandra Numbers. Hemachandra discovered the golden ratio 50 years before Fibbonaci, in the year 1202. 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. The Hemachandra inspired designs of the studded rims connect the Stone Drops collection to the exquisite rhythms of nature.
The Kesuda flower (Butea Monosperma} 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 which create the image of a massive fire in the field. 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”. Their 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.
