All That Glitters | Jewellery from India | Polki Jewellery


via : Amrapali

The Indian State of Rajasthan is the epicenter of some of the most beautiful kinds of jewellery in the country. One such notable style is Polki. The uncut diamonds used in this kind of ornamentation is essentially referred to as polki and the variations in designs made with these beautiful clear stones are what make it so gorgeous.

Diamond polki jewellery is often offset with other precious and semi-precious gems like rubies, emeralds, sapphire, garnets, pearls etc. It is usually based in gold or with gold plating, especially when used as bridal jewellery. A mix of kundan or jadau work and the uncut diamond based polki style is one of the more popular styles from Rajasthan. The jewellery is very luxurious looking and perfect for wedding trousseaus, since it can be used on a variety of ornaments to great effect. Since the stones used in polki jewellery are clear and are normally combined with other red, green or blue stones or kundan work if at all, it makes the pieces highly versatile and easy to incorporate both with a variety of different colour schemes and also with your other favourite pieces of jewellery.

This kind of jewellery, at least the ones made with real stones, is heavy so the earrings are often held up with delicate chains that you pin up in your hair to counterbalance the weight. Polki work chokers or larger, longer neck-pieces and maang-tikas are also a great choice for bridal wear. This style can also be combined with delicate filigree work or a mix of contemporary and classic jewellery styles, for maximum effect. Beautiful!
