Fine jewellery with the beauty of rare uncut pieces, Kundan-Polki Collection.
Kundan is a type of gold jewellery that is produced from the purest form of the metal. Kundan is the name of the setting that surrounds the stones. The term ‘kundan’ refers to highly refined pure gold, and most of this form of jewellery is made of 24k gold.
Kundan jewellery is one of India’s oldest types of jewellery, with a history dating back over 2,500 years. Because 24 karats is a little softer than 18 karats, it cannot be used to make a whole jewellery piece—only the jadayi component, which is finally known as kundan, is done in 24 karats. Polki diamonds are uncut and unfinished. They have a non-faceted polished surface and are often carved to follow the original structure of the stone. They are often kept in their original rough form. This is why no two polki are alike, making each one different and one-of-a-kind. It is one of the oldest types of cut diamonds, having originated in India long before the invention of western cutting methods. Polokis are incredibly valuable because they are the purest kind of diamond obtainable. The fact that these designs are often enhanced with precious stones and pearls adds to their value as well. Kundan-Polki jewellery is named for the polki stones that are set in the encasement, and the process of manufacturing kundan and polki is known as Jadau!
Kundan jewellery is one of India’s oldest jewellery crafts, with roots dating back to the Rajput and Mughal eras. Many centuries ago, this style was imported to the country and flourished under the patronage of the Mughals. The royal families of India then effectively adapted it. This type of jewellery today contains vestiges of creativity and craftsmanship from the Mughal and Rajput eras. Polki jewellery has a rich history as well as a timeless appeal. Owning a piece of polki jewellery is regarded as a great addition to an Indian woman’s jewellery box because it is one of the earliest forms of traditional jewellery. Different nations have their own piece of polki jewellery. Rajputi brides, for example, favour stiff aad necklaces. Statement earrings like Kashmiri jhumkas and kanser are perennial favourites with today’s young brides, while chokers piled with long haars or heavy spherical necklaces are popular choices.
Polki diamonds are less expensive when compared to finished diamonds used in fine jewellery. Kundan is the name given to the setting in which polki diamonds are set. As a result, it was a complete kundan-polki set.
Kundan-Polki collection at Navrathan has a range of jewellery, each unique to its occasion. There is a complete collection of kundan-polki jewelry that is dedicated to bridal jewelry. Kundan-polki Sets offers a wide choice of high-quality Indian bridal jewellery that may be completely personalized to meet the preferences of the customer.

The evergreen shades of Meenakari Jewellery
Let’s start at the very beginning. Persia is the origin of Meenakari jewellery. Mina is the feminine counterpart of Minoo (Persian meaning = Heaven), and she is fixated on the cyanic colour of heaven. This art was created by Iranian artisans and afterwards transmitted by Mongolians to other countries (including Indians). Mughals, who were fond of elaborate Mughal jewellery, became acquainted with Shahi art.
It was popularised in Rajasthan sometime in the 16th century by Raja Man Singh (Amber), who summoned Meenakars from the Mughal court in Lahore. These Meenakars were able to settle in Jaipur thanks to him, and the craft was firmly established. In India, Jaipur has become the epicentre of Meenakari art.
Metal oxides are combined with a sprinkle of powdered glass to create the enamel hues. The science behind it is that the oxide content determines the colour hue that will be achieved.
Silver is the most popular metal for Meenakari because the enamel melts and adheres well to pure metal, resulting in one piece. Basic colours like green, blue, and yellow can be resisted by silver. Gold, on the other hand, has traditionally been utilized for Meenakari jewellery for the longest time. Gold retains the enamel better and brings out the colours more vividly.
At Navrathan the designs of Meenakari jewellery are decorated with the most beautiful motifs and colours that leave you mesmerized. These pieces are unique and different in their own way. Each piece is carefully created and crafted keeping in mind the beauty of the shades. These pieces are very popular for different festivities and are in huge demand during wedding seasons. These mesmerizing pieces are ones you don’t want to miss.
