History

Van Gelder Indian Jewellery is a family-run business founded in 1980 by Bernadette van Gelder – van der Ven. In 2000 Bernadette was joined by her two daughters Fleur Damman – van Gelder and Noelle Viguurs – van Gelder. The firm specializes in traditional jewellery from India and has grown to one of the leading international dealers in this field today.

Van Gelder Indian Jewellery has been exhibiting at TEFAF Maastricht, the world’s leading art fair, since 1985. For more than 30 years Van Gelder Indian Jewellery has been on a quest to collect the most extraordinary quality of traditional jewellery from India. Developing and perfecting this collection, targeted at an international clientele, is a continuous process.

In 2012 Fleur and Noëlle have taken over the business and they have continuously taken their dedication to quality and originality forward. Alongside their participation in high quality international art fairs such as TEFAF, new initiatives, projects and collaborations are developed and launched yearly.

The book “Traditional Indian Jewellery – The Golden Smile of India” is the result of over 35 years of experience of the author, Bernadette van Gelder. She shares in this publication her passion for India and knowledge of the Indian jewellery tradition. With her pen she translates her eye for beauty and detail, and takes you with her into this colorful history. This amazing two volumes book has been launch at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam in November 2017.
