Jadau jewellery is for the true connoisseur of jewellery art, for it combines the elegance of scintillating Polkis, the intricacy of gleaming Kundankari and the artistic aesthetics of Meenakari.
A rather breathtaking combination, the craft of making Jadau jewellery has been practiced since the Mughal era in the north-western states of the Asian sub-continent. It is the true amalgamation of the Islamic art, Mughal grandeur and traditional jewellery crafting techniques of the region. Flat-cut diamonds and colorstones are inlayed into a pure 22K gold case using Kundankari style of of setting. Once individual Jadau components of sheer beauty are shaped, embellished, inlayed and finished by the craftsmen in at least 3-5 stages, the ‘Patua’ or stringers lend the pieces the superior finishing it deserves. It is truly the’Patua’ or stringing artistan’s skill which provides the style, movement and character in a creative expression.
