5 jewelry designs that never go out of style
Jadau is a type of bridal jewelry wherein precious and semi-precious gemstones are embedded into a base mould which is made of thin sheets of gold. Sounds delicate? It is. The amount of finesse required to create Jadau jewelry is nothing to sneeze at. It takes artisans years of practice to become perfect. If you are interested in getting a Jadau ring, be prepared to pay a high price but if you’re hell-bent on Jadau, the 3-gram gold ring price probably will not burn a hole in your pocket.
Polki consists of rough, unfinished and uncut diamonds set in a gold setting. It is pretty symbolic of the phrase ‘diamonds in the rough’. But, guess what? Since these diamonds are in their natural form, they shine brighter and exhibit more luster. The gold sheets that form the base for the stones sit in added an extra layer of extravagance. This extra shine makes it an expensive purchase. But if you aren’t ready to shell out that much, you can look at 5-gram gold earrings instead.
Probably the most popular and loved pieces of a bridal jewelry collection, Kundan is pretty similar to Polki. Instead of diamonds used in Polki, Kundan has glass set on gold sheets. This looks great on every bride and photograph really well because of the reflection from the glass.
If you’re looking for grace with style, Meenakari is the way to go. Meenakari consists of jewelry moulds filled with colored enamel. Basic motifs like flowers, birds, animals, plants, gods and goddesses are often featured in Meenakari. In fact, if you like a combination of traditional and modern jewelry, you should try Meenakari because you can get a lotus motif design which is trending. You can also combine Meenakari with Jadau or Kundan.
Typically witnessed in South Indian culture, temple jewelry is a popular choice with brides not only in South but also North. This is for the brides that love gold. Temple jewelry is created in pure gold with precious and semi-precious gemstones encrusted. Temple jewelry can have motifs of gods, goddesses, lotuses, and swans. These motifs are what set this type of jewelry apart and lend it that beautiful extravagance.
