Eminent photographer Rahul Gajjar
, founder of OMESSA
has been extensively photographing UNESCO World Heritage Sites over the last three decades, trying to capture its various moods in different seasons, at various times of the day and year. His passion and love for the architectural jewels of Champaner-Pavagadh gave birth to the idea of creating contemporary accessories for the woman of today.
Fine Art Jewellery brings you exquisite heritage jewellery inspired by the delicately carved, wonderfully imagined, superbly executed architectural wonders of Champaner, each one equally beautifully designed, finished, and presented as the original inspiration.
The oldest surviving, 10th century Lakulish Temple located on Pavagadh Hills, influenced the creation of OMESSA - Lord of Om.
