What is Jadau Meenakari

bangles

Jadau is a technique used in precious jewelry making. This technique is often very wrongly interpreted and people think it is a form of jewelry. However, jadau is a technique used in making Kundan and Polki jewelry. So, while Kundan and Polki are stones, Jadau is a technique used to make Kundan/Polki jewelry.

Meenakari is a colorful style of enameling the jewelry that flourished during the Mughal era, and was hugely popular with Rajasthan royalty. It is the art of coloring and ornamenting the surface of metals by fusing over it brilliant colors that are decorated in an intricate design. Over the centuries, Meenakari was combined with the traditional Rajasthani Kundan style of jewelry. The Kundan-Meena jewelry, hence, is the result of this incredible craftsmanship, and it takes twice as many adjectives to describe the incredible art.
