Gift jewelry boxes

The most beautiful gift jewelry boxes you will ever find are available at NOVICA. We offer uniquely designed gift jewelry boxes from places such as India, Bali and Java, Thailand, Andes, West Africa, Central America, Brazil, and Mexico. The uniqueness of each gift jewelry box is determined by the interest and culture of the artisan. For instance, the "Golden Treasures" design by Khalid Ali is inspired by the ancient Mughal style. While it has been modernized, it still hearkens back to the unique style and history of this particular culture.

Since natural stones are used in many of the gift jewelry box creations, it is common for slight variations to be visible. A good example of such stone variations is in the soapstone used by Gulam Rasool from India in his "Nautilus" design. He is a master at openwork carving, and at NOVICA, we offer many of his unique creations.

Carved by hand, the brass and wood gift jewelry box design by Mohammad Ayyub, also from India, depicts an elephant strolling through a forest. This gifted artisan uses the technique of block printing in many of his designs. The precision of the intricately designed seesham wood will be a perfect showcase for your fine jewelry collectibles.

At NOVICA, we have more than 2,000 gifted artisans creating over 20,000 handcrafted products. Renowned artisans such as Putu Oka Mahendra from Bali and Java, Isabel Maza from Mexico, Sarla Soni from India, Madam Adwoa and Onayame Akwan Dooso from West Africa, and many, many others provide a wide selection of gift jewelry boxes designed with eye-catching beauty that will delight their owners for years to come.
