Kundan: A Gateway To Glitz
Accessories are an piece of fashion that can empower any outfit in an instant. If the fear of breaking your bank is keeping you away from adding a little bling to your style, then opting for a classic piece of kundan jewellery is a wise choice.
Chic, Pretty, Classy
The art of making a kundan jewellery was fostered in India by the Mughals. Since then, the artists have experimented with designs and patterns in order to suit contemporary tastes. Today, you get to choose from a variety of designs studded with precious stones, semi-precious stones, and crystals. Each piece jewellery has its own special metalwork design, made from gold or faux metal.
Expert artisans create exquisite kundan designs, using the traditional procedures like Ghaat, Padh, Khudai, Meenakari, Pakai and Chillai. The intricate meenakari (enamel) work that goes on the reverse side of the framework makes the jewellery doubly beautiful. The designs and patterns are as heavily inspired from the Turkish, Persian, and Mughal architectures as they are from nature.
Make A Statement With Kundan
Add an effortless touch of luxury to your look by accessorising your outfit with a statement necklace made in kundan style. If you like chunky jewellery, pair heavy, kundan earrings with a simple outfit to really take it to the next level.
You can also opt for kundan jewellery made from transparent stones, to wear over a multicoloured outfit. Add an indo-western feel to any gown or a dress with a kundan statement piece when you head out for a formal setting like a cocktail party. If you like to play with vibrant accessories, kundan jewellery is definitely a must-try. The appearance of kundan on several runways are proof of the fact that you don’t necessarily have to wear traditional clothes to carry this jewellery off.
Take your pick from statement necklaces, chunky earrings, delicate pendants, and flattering bracelets and get ready to shine.
