Many of you have admired, appreciated and sometimes even been annoyed with the names of our products. But do you know that we put a lot of effort into naming each and everyone of our beautiful handmade silver jewellery pieces so that each one has a distinct name and not just a product code.

And these are our chosen names for our ever popular peacock motif silver jewellery.
Suka, Pakhi both mean parrot and the Suka pendant, Jhumka as well as the Pakhi Earrings, Jhumka and Bangle have parrot motifs on them.

Godess Laxmi who figures prominently in our Silver Temple Jewellery Collection is known by various names which are used for our jewellery like Pragya, Kamakshi, Deeptha, Paramaa, Pratha, Aroopa, Mahakanya, Bhairavi and Aparajita.
Those pieces which feature Lord Krishna are named Avyukta, Saket, Mohana all different names of the same God.
Some of our products are also named on the basis of the gemstones used like Zukti, Mauktika, Meghaja, Rasopala and Induratna which mean Pearl while Manikya means Ruby.
The Colours used in the product also influence the names , for example Alaktha means red, Shwetha means White and Nila, Nilavarna means dark or blue. Lohita and Rudhira also mean red, Swarna signifies Gold, Ujjal denotes bright. We also have the very popular Varna jhumka, and varna means colour while Vivarna means `filled with colours’.
Not just colours our names are also inspired by the shape of the jewellery. The Varga bracelet, earrings,necklace all carry an unusual square shape and are named so because Varga means Square in Sanskrit.
Amra, Rasala, Rajaphala, Makanda all denote the Paisley or mango shape and so is used to name many pieces that carry this lovely shape. Vartula and Mandala both mean round ,so we have the Mandala pendant and Vartula Jhumka.
Our collection of Antique Coin Jewellery also uses ancient Sanskrit words like Pana, Niska, Rupika which all mean coins.
So the next time you pick up something from KO and wear it, revel in the beautiful and unique name of the piece as our products have an identity of their own and not just a product code.
