Kundan jewelry is believed to have originated in the royal courts of Rajasthan and Gujarat. It is commonly accepted that Kundan work flourished in the Delhi courts of the Mughals. The perfect example of this fact is Aishwarya Rai’s jewelry in the movie ‘Jodhaa Akbar.’ This style was highly prized by Mughal royalty and noblemen, and artisans who specialized in this were much in demand. Over time these artisans also migrated to the province of Rajasthan and became immensely popular there as well. The artisans also spread to neighbouring Gujarat and the rest as they say is history. Today Kundan work from cities such as Jaipur, Bikaner and Nathdwara is very famous and highly prized.
Kundan, meaning 'pure gold', is one of the oldest forms of jewellery making and stands for ethereal beauty, elegance and superb craftsmanship.The art of making Kundan jewelry found great patronage during the Mughal era and some of the world's most mesmerizing pieces of jewelry were created in those times. Manufacturing of Kundan-Meena jewelry is a long, skill-intensive job, requiring great effort and coordinated teamwork to create exquisite pieces. The designs are simple yet aesthetic, consisting of simple geometric patterns to the more elaborate embellishments.
Kundan work is a long and arduous process, involving many different stages and artisans and craftsmen with a variety of skill sets. Each stage needs to be painstakingly taken care of as a mistake at any stage can mar the piece.
While Kundan is less expensive than Polki due to the presence of glass instead of uncut diamonds, it is by no means cheap. Jewelry pieces can start from a minimum of Rs.50, 000. The price is dependent upon the type of stone being used. Obviously pieces that use glass stones will be cheaper than those that employ rubies, emeralds or sapphires.
