One of the oldest forms of jewelery made and worn in India is the 24-carat pure gold Kundan jewellery. Kundan work is a method of gem setting, consisting of inserting gold foil between the stones and its mount. Kundan jewellery received great patronage during the Mughal era and the most beautiful pieces were created in those times. A single piece of Kundan jewelry is done by different artisans. The chiterias do the work of basic designing of the jewelry, engraving work is carried out be ghaarias, the enameling work is done be the enameler, the goldsmith looks after the gold or kundan work and finally stone setters do work of just setting the precious stone in the holes of the jewelry. Different precious stones which can be incorporated in kundan jewelry comprise of agate, garnet, emerald, topaz, amethyst, jade, rock crystal, spinel, uncut diamonds, sapphires etc.

Often Kundan work is combined with enameling Meenakari so that a piece of jewellery has two equally beautiful surfaces enamel at the back end and Kundan set gems in the front. Meenakari involves the fusion of colored minerals such as cobalt oxide for blue copper oxide for green. This on the surface of the metal gives the effect of precious stone inlay work. Lately designers have started using uncut diamonds/ colored glass or crystals as embellishments in saris lehengas and accessories like handbags and shoes. This is called Kundan Work as it involves embroidery with stones set in metal surround and looks similar to Kundan jewellery.

The designs of these jewelleries are also very beautiful and traditional. The stones studded on Kundan jewelleries are very unique. How are these jewelleries made? Why this jewellery is named `Kundan`?

Kundan jewelleries have their own importance. They are artistically crafted and emotionally touched. A must-own for almost every Indian wedding.
