Don't get married! Until you know these 5 Types of Bridal Jewellery!
‘Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but they sure are a bride’s love.’
The look of any bride remains incomplete without a touch of jewellery to add grace to her look. Bridal jewellery is one important factor that can make or break a bride’s look. Shopping for a wedding day and finding the best bridal jewellery set or Dulhan set can be pretty exhausting.
Worry not, we are here to help all brides-to-be with the perfect jewellery, to glam up their wedding day.
Here are 5 categories of bridal jewellery for you to choose from to suit your aesthetics and look extravagant on a day you’ll forever remember.
1. Kundan Jewellery
The word 'Kundan' means highly refined and pure form of molten gold. Kundan Jewellery is seeped in Indian tradition having a gem set with gold foil between the stones and its mount, usually used in sophisticated necklaces.
Kundan jewellery is expensive because of its intricate craft-work and gold content, but makes the bride look priceless. You can always choose to go with imitation jewellery to get the same look, without burning a hole in your pockets.
2. Polki Jewellery
Polki stones are raw, uncut and unprocessed diamonds in its purest form. They do not undergo any chemical treatment and have an intense rusty look; which gives them a vintage and royal look.
Polki jewellery is a thousand-year-old art form by the Mughals, originating in Bikaner and then travelling to other parts of the world. Polki bridal jewellery comes in all shapes, sizes and colours and looks as beautiful as you on ‘your day’.
3. Temple Jewellery
Originating in the 9th century, temple jewellery was used as an adornment for Gods & Goddesses in the southern parts of India. It plays an important role in South Indian culture. This jewellery has elegantly crossed all its boundaries and made a name for itself in bridal jewellery. It stands out from other types of jewellery because of its articulate designs of Gods, flowers, animals, birds, figures, etc. Though it looks big and oversized they compliment the Goddess within you.
4. Meenakari Jewellery
Meenakari - an art of colouring jewellery, by enamelling mineral substances over it. This art form is heavily used in Meenakari bridal jewellery. The moulds are mostly influenced by designs of Gods, animals, flowers etc and are coloured accordingly. Meenakari is usually used in Kundan jewellery. These timeless pieces of jewellery are still a relevant fashion and favoured by brides all over India.
5. Jadau Jewellery
This Mughal originated art form of jewellery requires skillful craftsmanship, as embedding precious gemstones into a base mould, made of thin sheets of gold is no child’s play. We don’t blame you for confusing Jadau jewellery with other types of bridal jewellery, as it is similar for the most part; but the real virtue of Jadau Jewellery lies within the accurately placed gemstones in thin pieces of gold moulds.
