Upgrading Spaces: The Beauty of Inlaid Marble

Rameshwaram Art

In the world of interior and architectural design, few elements can match the timeless beauty and sophistication of marble inlay. Rameshwaram Arts & Crafts stands at the forefront of this exquisite craft, showcasing a legacy of unparalleled craftsmanship that has been passed down through generations. We have elevated the art form to new heights, creating masterpieces that adorn homes, hotels, and palaces around the globe.


It is also known as "Pietra Dura" or "Parchin Kari," and has its roots deeply embedded in the rich history of Indian art and culture. Originating during the reign of the Mughal Empire, this art form flourished in the 17th century under the patronage of Emperor Shah Jahan. 


The creation involves a painstakingly detailed process that requires precision, skill, and a keen eye for design. We with our team of master craftsmen, follow these steps:

Selection of Marble: The process begins with the careful selection of high-quality marble. The chosen marble serves as the canvas for the inlay work, providing a smooth and durable surface.

Design Creation: Our Master artisans meticulously design the intricate patterns that will adorn the marble surface. These designs are often inspired by traditional motifs, floral patterns, and geometric shapes.

Inlay Cutting: Precious and semi-precious gemstones are carefully chosen and shaped according to the design. The stones are cut with precision to ensure they fit seamlessly into the marble surface.

Carving Grooves: The selected design is carved onto the marble surface, creating grooves that will hold the inlaid gemstones securely. This requires great skill and attention to detail to maintain the integrity of the design.

Inlay Setting: The cut gemstones are delicately placed into the carved grooves, forming an intricate pattern. This process demands a high level of craftsmanship, as each stone must sit perfectly to achieve a flawless finish.

Polishing: Once the inlay work is complete, the entire piece undergoes a thorough polishing process to enhance the natural luster of the marble and give the inlaid gemstones a radiant glow.


Its versatility extends beyond traditional architecture and monuments. Rameshwaram Arts & Crafts has successfully applied this age-old technique to a myriad of contemporary products, bringing a touch of timeless elegance to modern living spaces. Some of the notable applications include:
