Designing a perfect piece of jewellery and making it more and more elaborate while refining it to its best has kept the jewellery designers busy for decades. This experimenting with a desire to create something new has also led to the creation of various different jewellery designs.
Among those designs are the Kundan and Meenakari jewellery that originated from the Indian subcontinent. These forms of jewellery got popular in the Mughal Era and are considered to be originated from the Indian states of Rajasthan and Gujarat.
Kundan means the gold in its purest form after it is refined and is sometimes wrongfully referred to the stones that go into the jewellery. Gold is a soft metal in its purest form and the making of Kundan jewellery is really very sophisticated. No heat is applied when making a fine piece of jewellery and a hammer is used instead to make such elaborate and complex patterns.

On the other hand, Meenakari is the art of making the jewellery colourful using enamel colours. Meenakari is done by fusing the colourful glass with the metal by using a specialized firing process and can be done on gold, silver, copper and bronze. What makes Meenakari art truly unique is that the most complex of the designs, that go into making a perfect piece of jewellery are made by hand.
The Meenakari artforms can also be combined with Kundan to form some colourful gold jewellery embellished with the stonework that looks really great. These exquisite pieces of jewellery are a piece of art, handmade to perfection and have a timeless appeal. Kundan jewellery with the bright coloured traditional Indian motifs like peacocks, flowers, leaves etc. add to the overall design and have a truly unique appearance.
