Kundan Jewelry

6

I am in love with “Kundan”. And No Kundan ain’t a guy and neither is Kundan a girl!
(I had to clarify! What if mom and dad are reading!)

“Kundan” is a form of gem setting with pure gold. The purest and softest form of gold (24K) is hammered into sheets and mounted around stones to encase them. I didn’t know this, but because the stones are encased, light strikes the stones only from above which actually gives them the dull look versus a shiny one.

Seeing the Jodhaa-Akbar poster reminded me of this classic and timeless style of jewelry. Now, what Ash is wearing probably runs into lakhs and crores of rupees, but since I don’t have that much money, I am going to have to find pieces that are much cheaper but that still maintain the essence. I searched far and wide, high and low all over the world (on the internet of course!) and finally came up with some reallly cute pieces that I am thinking of buying.

These cute bangles are very reminiscent of the Kundan design with the red and green stones that almost look like precious rubies and emeralds. You might think that these might run upto more than a thousand dollars, but they are only $34 for the pair.

I have never seen Kundan anklets before but am totally loving the idea. These would be great to wear with skirts or capris. You could probably even wear these on one hand and make a great chunky bracelet out of em!

An…d for the grand finale.. I cannot end this post and not have a pair of earrings.
This simple chandelier style earrings with golden beads are just too delicious for only $32.
