Indian Jewellery

Major types of Indian Jewellery include temple jewellery, antique jewellery, minakari jewellery, South Indian jewellery and north Indian jewellery. Another kind of jewellery that traces its origin back to the ancient Indian includes the temple jewellery. It is characterised by some of the finest handwork, painfully crafted by skilled craftsmen and jewelers consisting of traditional gold ornaments studded with red and green semi-precious stones offered to the Gods. Classical and traditional in its appearance, temple jewellery is commonly associated with dancers practicing the dance form of Bharatanatyam or Kuchipudi. 

Amongst the Indian jewellery antique Jewellery relates to the present trend and is in reality considered more of fancy jewellery. Antique jewellery is actually the modern day jewellery in gold or silver, which goes through a process of oxidising and is sometimes buried in a pot of clay, to give it a dull look. Minakari Jewellery and Kundan styles of jewellery evolved from the influences of the Mughal dynasty. Minakari refers to enameling a unique combination of gems, enamel pigments Minakari Jewellery and precious stones and these are usually used in combination to make jewellery pieces that can be worn as chokers and necklaces. The motifs used in this art were flowers, plants, scrolling vines and animal forms, amongst others. At its simplest level, south Indian jewellery imitates forms found in nature. Chased gold is made to imitate the rudraksha bead sacred to the god Shiva, elements of necklaces may copy cut grass stalks, lotus buds, garlic bulbs or lentils as well as flowers.  

Indian jewellery is stylish and is not restricted only to a single metal. Manufacturers use all materials, ranging from plastic and glass to white metal, cheaper alloys and fabric. India has been a major manufacturer and exporter of jewellery in recent years.
