TRAVELS TO:
JAIPUR, INDIA

This rose tinted, sun kissed city has been a home away from home for Tada & Toy over the last 5 years. All of our jewellery designs are lovingly made in hand picked workshops within the city. Over time we have explored nearly every corner of this peachy paradise so thought sharing our insider tips to Jaipur would be a fitting way to launch our Travels To series of blog posts. Enjoy the Indian magic and book a flight today.

Peshawri - Sister restaurant of the infamous Bukhara in Delhi. Eat with your hands the real Indian way. Dhall and Naan bread so buttery and delicious you won't believe your eyes. (Bani Park) 

Khanas - Clean street food, perfect for trying out every weird and wonderful Rajasthani dish. The Chole Bhature is a team favourite. (branches all over Jaipur)

LMB - Nestled within the old city walls, the perfect pit stop between sight seeing. Try every type of Lassi and Indian sweet you can imagine for a pick me up or grab a bite at the back restaurant. (Johari Bazaar)

Bar Palladio - The most Instagrammed interior in town, this cobalt blue bar is where everyone in the know meets for candle lit cocktails and a chilled glass of Italian wine. (Rambagh) 

Baradi - Located within the iconic walls on the City Palace this is the ultimate insiders place. Expect late night parties during festival times with music that goes on until the early hours, the rest of the year it remains the place to take in Jaipur's social scene. (City Palace)

Sujan Rajmahal Palace - An eye-wateringly beautiful hotel which is the perfect place to come for a drink and experience Indian hospitality and luxury at it's finest. Sit by the pool for an icy gin and tonic or head to the blue polo bar for one of their signature delicious cocktails. (C Scheme)

Stay

Villa 243 - This newly opened guest house ticks all our boxes. Rooftop views over the city and peaceful rooms which are a fusion between the Mediterranean and modern Indian. Run by the affable Abhishek, you will never be better taken care of.  ($, Shyam Nagar)

Narain Niwas Hotel - Staying here is a good idea, right in the centre of town and with the best bars and shops within your hotel grounds. Find respite from the Indian madness at the marble swimming pool on a lush green lawn at the back of the hotel. Rooms are traditionally decorated but not over the top.  ($$, Rambagh)

Sujan Rajmahal Palace - After a recent refurbishment this hotel now sits proudly as the crown jewel of Jaipur's many luxury hotels. Interior designer Adil Ahmad has created a thing of great beauty in this palace with each room proving more beautiful than the next. With only 14 suites and rooms the hotel is never busy and always feels yours. The ultimate delight for the senses, we would. ($$$, C-Scheme)

Wander up the cobbled paths and spend the day admiring this opulent palace. (Amer) 

Hawa Mahal & City Palace - The two biggest attractions in Jaipur don't disappoint. Steeped in history and feats of Indian architecture these palaces are iconic in their scope and shapes.

Care

Our jewellery is made with 92.5 sterling silver and 18ct gold plated vermeil. Sterling silver will naturally tarnish and gold plating will gradually fade over time. Here are some steps to help prevent this:


Sprizting
Avoid your jewellery when spritzing perfume and applying lotions.


Salt & Sweat
Gold and silver can be damaged by chlorine and salt so remove before your work out or dip in the sea.


Cleaning
Keep your sterling silver jewellery clean by gently washing in warm soapy water and using a silver cleaner. Always remember to rinse and dry. To clean all Tada and Toy jewellery use the polishing cloth provided or any soft cloth.
