Indian Kundan style bracelet with faux pearls and enamels. There are 4 strands of faux pearls and 5 decorative enamel panels in gold, red, and black. There are clear rhinestones that add a lot of sparkle and dangles. An interesting clasp as well! The back has green and gold enamel decoration. Quite light and delicate. The bracelet measures 7" and 1-1/2" wide including the dangles. Information about traditional Kundan jewelry is found below. Please note that, although very lovely, this bracelet is not set with real gems or gold as traditional Kundan jewelry is.
Kundan is a traditional form of Indian gemstone jewellery involving a gem set with a gold foil between the stones and its mount, usually for elaborate necklaces. The method is believed to have originated in the royal courts of Rajasthan and Gujarat. It is one of the older forms of jewellery made and worn in India. The word kundan means highly refined gold, and a highly refined and pure form of molten gold is used.
Kundan, also known as Bikaneri or Jaipuri jewellery, is a popular variation, wherein enameling with vivid colours and designs is on the reverse, while the kundan setting is in the front.
