For millennia, the use of precious metals in art has distinguished civilisations. Among the rarest objects found from past cultures have been those which use gold & silver, handcrafted to sophisticated levels. In these, textiles have been seen to form an essential aspect of adornment, akin to jewellery. This fascination for pure materials such as gold continues till today, their eternal allure making them coveted by the most renowned contemporary artists, designers, master craftspeople and couturiers. Their value is evoked in furniture and exquisite crockery, in objects of art and handmade watches.
