This place is definitely worth a visit, whether you intend to buy anything or not. The artwork (primarily embroidery) and jewelry are all breathtaking. That said, the prices they will quote you are very high -- if you find something you like, haggle haggle haggle. They are often willing to sell for much less than the originally quoted price.

Our guide assured us that this store was very reputable. A talented craftsman demonstrated how to make gem-encrusted Zardozi embroidery and we were served tea. The staff was all very nice, but the prices were extremely high. I bought a beautiful Zardozi embroidery and a pair of 14k gold earrings there. Each cost over $600. When I got home, I... More

I usually buy a destination gift, something I can pack in my luggage. But on this occasion, I could not resist the beautiful embroidery this shop had to offer.. . I opted to purchase a coffee table top ( which by the way can also double as a picture). It depends on how they frame it. Of course this had... More

On August 22, 2015, our friend and tour guide Kamel Kant (KK) Gupta took us to Sanskriti Imperial Gems to see the Zardozi art. What a treat! KK is an archaeologist/tour guide, and knows my deep interest in the work of local artisans. We had the opportunity to watch and interact with an artisan doing the intricate silk embroidery work...

Sanskriti's Imperial Gems was a fantastic stop on my Trip to Agra. I was blown away by the beauty and detail involved in Zardozi Embroidery. The Staff was very professional and the products were top quality. One week after returning home I received a package in the mail. My purchases had been shipped to me and it was like opening...

While my family was visiting one of the red forts in India, our kind taxi driver/tour guide suggested we drive around and check out some places. I fell in love with Sankriti immediately. "Bobby" Sharma was the kind sales person who helped us navigate into India's embroidered art world. It was one of those moments where I wished I could... More

The jewelry seems overpriced for the quality you get (mind the details) The hanging Embroideries on the other hand looked fabulous. If the sales people hadn't been so pushy we would definitely have bought one of the beatiful hanging Embroideries. But as a consequence of the behaviour of the jewelry sales staff we didn't like to buy anything.

We were taken to Sanskriti's Imperial Gems by our tour guide. Our interest was not in jewelry, but, in the Zardozi embroidery sold by the shop. The piece of Zardozi we bought had inlaid gem stones that were embroidered around. First they give you a demonstration of how the Zardozi is made. It is an amazing process where thin wire... More
