Jaipur Jewelry Mixes Contemporary and Traditional

By: Deepak Negi

Are you looking for Indian jewelry and confused?

I would like to recommend you to get it from Jaipur. One strong reason behind this is that Indian jewelry directly relates to the tradition of India. And our Indian history proves that once Rajasthan used to be the center for different cultures like Mughals, British, Muslims and
many others....

They all left their essence in the life style of Rajasthani people and being the capital Jaipur was the most affected place. That's why you
can get a great combination of these cultures in Jaipur jewelry whether it is silver, gold, diamond or any other jewelry with natural stones and precious & semi-precious gemstones.

Silver - This is the most fascinating jewelry item of Jaipur. Earlier in Jaipur this item used to be made in traditional style only but now-a-days it offers a variety of designs by amalgamating traditional and contemporary styles at highly competitive prices imitation.

This kind of designer jewelry is very popular and appreciated by the tourists from all over the world. Sterling silver that contains 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals is preferred the most for making silver jewelry.

Gems stones - When it comes to color gemstones, precious & semi-precious stones and handcrafted silver jewelry all the International buyers prefer Jaipur. Jaipur has emerged as one of the leading centers in the colored stones segment of the gems and jewelry sector.

It also happens to be one of the world's largest centers for gemstone cutting and polishing. Around 80-85 percent of the emeralds worldwide
are cut in Jaipur. The industry here is over 300 years old. That's why gems stones of Jaipur are famous all over the world for their reality
and original sources.

Gold - Indians have a predilection for the gold and because of this India is the largest consumer of gold jewelry and ornaments in the world and Jaipur plays a big role amongst the providers. Jewelers from there offer some of the best traditional and modern designs in gold jewelry made with 14k, 18k and 22k gold.

Meenakari - This is a different kind of art in jewelry making and was introduced to Jaipur by the Mughals. It was brought to Jaipur by Raja
Man Singh. Meenakari is the art of doing enameling to the jewelry.

Earlier it used to be done in gold only but now it is done in silver and other metals also. This enameling is done by applying fusion of different
mineral substances over the metal surface.

Kundankari - This is the art of setting gems and stones in gold and silver. This was also been inspired by Mughals. One of the oldest forms
of jewelry made and worn in India is the 24 carat pure gold Kundan jewelry. Mostly kundan work is combined with enameling meenakari. In this way jewelry that comes out has two equally beautifully surfaces meenakari at the back surface and kundankari in the front surface.

Diamond - Whether it is contemporary diamond or Indian costume jewelry, Jaipur is the hub for all kind of jewelry. People are very much attracted towards Jaipur diamond and color stone.

As the real diamond is very much expensive, diamond replica is becoming the alternate of it. This is exactly the same as real diamond jewelry, but the small difference is that it is a replica. Because of this diamond jewelry that earlier used to be worn by exclusive people only, now can
be bought by an ordinary man or woman. Jaipur diamond is also used for some astrological reasons.

Jaipur jewelry designs follow not only its traditional style but also get you the designs that are hot right now in the international market. So if someone wants any type of jewelry on wholesale prices wholesalers from Jaipur can provide it all over the world.
