The colorful bohemian Jewellery of India is quite famous for its beautiful and intricate designs. Originating from Persia, Meenakari Jewellery was brought to India by the Mughals, and later, in the 16th century, Raja Maan Singh of Mewar, Rajasthan started displaying it for his portraits and Darbars. Meenakari Jewellery became an instant hit not only because of its royal look and grandeur, but it also became a source of attraction amongst the foreign tourists frequently visiting the beautiful palaces of Rajasthan. Handmade by the talented and hardworking craftsmen from Lahore, this design is still in vogue, even after so many centuries.
It is considered quite unique amongst other forms of traditional Jewellery in the Sub-continent. Colorful stones of different types are embedded on molten colorful glass and the intricate borders and designs are made of gold, silver, or Kundan to make this extraordinarily beautiful Meenakari Jewellery.
