Cascading down the aisle in heavily embroidered lehengas, adorned with exquisite jewellery set mostly in gold and traditional motifs; the image of a Rajput Royal bride is something one can’t easily shake off one’s mind. This graceful affair was characterised by the intricately crafted Kundan jewellery, a heritage that was created on the Rajasthan soil, especially for the royal court in the 3rd century BCE. The purest form of gold, painted in floral motifs and pitched with rare gemstones, and designed to represent grandeur, the Kundan form of jewellery transcended down history and found its place in the royal Mughal courts. Neighbouring states of Bihar and Punjab also picked up on the craft soon to give it the shape and form that reached the common people as well. Today, it is an inseparable part of the designer jewellery segment and many top celebrities have been carrying the pieces with elan in movies, at private functions, and also in day-to-day life.

Crafting a Kundan Jewellery Piece
In Sanskrit, the word Kundan means the purest form of gold; 24K as we know today. This versatile metal forms the base of Kundan jewellery as craftspeople make an intricate structure with gold stripes. The process is called gadhayi and the mould-like framework is created to form the foundation piece. The next step is khudayi, in which the outer surface of the jewellery piece is engraved with designs and patterns. These are mostly inspired by the motifs popular during the Rajput and the Mughal era. These frameworks are filled with lakh wax and the planned design is marked on the jewellery surface. The next step is meenakari in which the designs are filled with bright natural shades of colours. And finally, with jadayi the stones and gems are set in final pieces.
Traditionally, it takes anywhere from a month to four to handcraft these pieces. The meticulous designing and crafting are taken care of by artisans with years of experience at hand.
The modern-day artificial Kundan jewellery is set in various forms of gold and silver metal ghats. This process has made jewellery accessible to common people. The pieces may or may not have meenakari work on them based on the design.
