Kundan Meena Set: The Golden Indian Jewelry
Kundan jewelry, polki and meenakari jewelry, as compelling and prepossessing they are, is also a category of skills and artwork which is chiefly overlooked and misinterpreted. The Indian jewellery business has recognized an advanced switch in shopping habits of the ladies recently. Modern women had made a huge change of taste when it comes to jewelry. They demand for flimsy, present-day and resplendent designs with exemplary execution, and avoid typical, thick and bulky pieces.
Notwithstanding, Kundan and Polki jewellery has triumphantly survived this change and still attains an important title role of every bride’s apparel and of our patrimony that is passed down to generations. It sails through a long antiquity of ethnic heirloom and its’ framing art and attentive assembly skills pursues to plead to modern women. But so far many of us have finite understandings of these lovely pieces and are habitually misguided by smooth talking salesman and baffling vocubulary.
Kundan is a pure and crisp gold and it is never a stone. Kundan as a term itself is unjustly used to determine a stone; Kundan jewelry is nothing but gold jewelry in layman’s terms, and not any type of precious or semiprecious stone. Kundan is the most purified variety of gold. At the same time, Kundan jewelry invention is a very advanced process of encrusting any stone or rock, without the need of engaging high temperature and with only use of force, ideally with a hammer.
Meenakari or meena on the other story, can be created without the need of any stonework. Meenakari includes a type of mastery of elaborately embellishing the jewelry piece with tints and designs using coating colors. Close to Kundan artistry, Meenakari can be applied on the face of the piece, with the back left plain or enhanced with a print. Meenakari can be combined with Kundan setting with the front of the jewelry, which displays the whole fore surface of the gem, and back is dressed with enamel. Meenakari can be done on gold, silver, copper or bronze using the firing method of fusing glass into the metal.
