Kundan jewellery survives as one of the oldest forms of jewellery made and worn in India. It is made in 24 carat pure gold. It involves an intricate method of gem-setting, wherein foils of gold are inserted between the stones. Bearing the hallmark of traditional Rajasthani craftsmanship, this form of jewellery making received royal patronage during the Mughal era.
A particular piece of jewellery is first shaped by a trained craftsman or karigar, who fuses in imageries from nature, bridal folklore and the like in the specialised shape. Holes are cut out for the various pieces which are going to be studded on – diamonds, rubies, emeralds, pearls etc, and then engraving is carried out and at the final stage, enamelling is carried out upon the pieces. When the stones are to be set, lac is inserted in the holes from the back, which is then, visible from the front. Kundan, which is actually highly refined gold, is then used to cover the lac, which then acts as a case, into which the stones are inserted. More kundan is then applied upon the edges to strengthen the settings.
