Beautiful Jewellery For Gorgeous Women
Jewellery has always been an integral part of Indian women. To accentuate their feminine beauty, they use jewellery, made of gold, silver and diamonds. An expert from PP Jewellers said: “Though women have got a variety of jewellery to choose from, the demand for traditional jewellery is still at its peak. The demand for other forms like Jadau, Kundan, Polki and Pearl has also gone up.” We provide an insight into these forms.
Jadau is one of the most popular choices in the genre of jewellery. Jadau jewellery is also called Engraved Jewellery and is unique and a kind in itself. Jadau is a special make with uncut stones and diamond. This form of jewellery was brought into India by the Mughals after which it was practiced in the states of Rajasthan and Gujarat. Considered to be a traditional jewellery of India, it is used in many traditional and auspicious occasions like marriages and festival celebrations.
Inspired by Rajasthani art, it is also known as Bikaneri or Jaipuri jewellery. The Kundan jewellery is crafted with multi-coloured enamels with studded stones and it is one of the oldest forms of jewellery made and worn in India. This form of jewellery originated in the royal courts of Rajasthan and Gujarat.
Polki jewellery is created out of uncut diamonds and basically built around the shape. The base metal is moulded around these uncut diamonds to create a beautiful and unique design. Different styles in Indian Polki jewellery are available in enchanting floral and geometric designs. You may be able to find a combination of emerald, rubies and glassy coloured uncut diamonds.
The value of pearl in jewellery is determined by its luster, color, size, lack of surface flaw and symmetry. Out of which luster is the most important differentiator of pearl quality. They are found in eight basic shapes: round, semi-round, button, drop, pear, oval, baroque, and circled. However, the larger the pearl the more valuable it is. Large, perfectly round pearls are the rarest and most valuable shapes. Teardrop-shaped pearls are often used in pendants.
