Kundan, meenakari and jadau jewellery has always held a special place in the bridal segment. The grandeur of uncut diamonds set within the confines of intricate patterns is unparalleled. The detailed meenakari work and the inclusion of gemstones add vivacious pops of colour making each piece a treasured keepsake for a lifetime.

The eternal favourite of Indian brides, jadau or kundan-meena jewellery brings together two art forms – enamelling and kundan-setting or inlaying of gemstones with a 24-karat gold foil.

The preferred choice of jewels by erstwhile Indian kings and queens, the kundan-meena art has been undergoing a transformation of sorts as jewellers are giving it a contemporary slant. The category is today not just restricted to the bridal segment, but many enterprising manufacturers are also creating pret wear kundan-meena for millennials and Gen Z. They are extending the art form to suit the requirements of lighter occasions and daily wear by scaling down patterns, while keeping the luxuriance of the piece intact.

Be it a dainty ring with a hint of kundan meena or hefty bridal set, the pieces are sure to add vivacity to any occasion.
