A BYGONE ERA

Jadau jewellery forms one of the major examples of highly skilled craftsmanship which originated in Indo-Gangetic plains. Historically speaking, the tradition of Jadau has been in practice in the states of Rajasthan and Gujarat that flourished extensively during the royal patronage of Mughal era. Considered to be the traditional jewellery of India, Jadau is adorned for various auspicious and special occasions, and during festival celebrations.

Jadau, popularly also known as Kundan, Polki and Uncut diamond work is purely teamwork, where a group of craftsmen implement their skills collectively. Each craftsman carries out a specific task related to the creation of Jadau jewellery. The Chiterias make the basic design, Ghaarias are responsible for engraving and creating holes, Meenakari or enameling is done by the Enameler and Goldsmith takes care of Kundan/Gold. Gems and uncut diamonds are set with 24kt gold foil between stones.

The method is believed to have originated in the royal palaces and made by “Royal Jewellers” who prevailed in the then era in the states of Rajasthan and Gujarat.

A popular variant in Jadau is termed as ‘Bikaneri’ or ‘Jaipur Jewellery’ wherein enameling with vivid colors and designs is on the reverse side of jewellery while the Kundan/Polki setting is on the front.

Recently, in the epic film “Padmavat”, the lead character ‘Padmavathi’ portrayed by Ms.Deepika Padukone was seen wearing extensive and brilliant Jadau jewellery highlighting its influence in the Rajasthani royalty.

WORDS OF THE WISE

#TIP

Over time, platinum jewellery tends to develop a layer called Patina which takes on a grayish matte look. However, the shine can be restored by simple polishing.

#FACT

Amethyst, is known to be a violet variety of quartz that’s usually used in jewellery which displays colors and ranges from pale lilac to deep purple. It is a perfect symbol that represents virtue and dignity.
