India’s contribution to the world of fashion has been noteworthy in recent times.

The arrival of the bold, courageous and artistic fashion designers over the last few decades has revealed the sensuousness and grace of Indian attire and accessories. Kundan jewelry has been enjoying a great demand within the country from centuries. Originating in the heart of Rajasthan and Gujarat, this type of jewelry now enjoys popularity on the international platform.
Ornaments from this category form an integral part of the Indian wedding jewelry, especially in the northern part of the country. Over the years, Indian jewelry designers have left no stone unturned in making sure these beautiful ornaments can be paired with outfits such as long flowing robes, off shoulder gowns, the famous little black dress and more. Traditional kundan jewelry was made using precious metals such as gold and embedding precious stones such as rubies, emeralds and diamonds. Today, though the designs have stayed true to their origins, gold has given place to affordable metals such as silver or brass and precious stones have been replaced with cubic zirconium and other colourful imitation stones.
