Jewellery, Jewellery art and craft, Jewellery art of Rajasthan, Jewellery Arts & Crafts In Rajasthan, Rajasthan Arts Crafts, Arts Crafts of RajasthanThe artistic delicacy and elaborateness in the manufacturing of Rajasthani jewellery made of purest and finest materials is world-renowned. Rajasthan became famous for its jewellery industry from very early times, being an important source of precious and semi precious stones.

Sophisticated jewellery, set with precious stones using the 'Kundankari' technique, or decorated with bright enamel work, known as 'minakari', were made for the Rajput courtiers and affluent people. Skillful artisans from Lahore, Delhi, Gujarat, and Bengal, attracted by the liberal patronage of the kings, came to work in Jaipur, Bikaner, Udaipur and Jodhpur. Jaipur is the centre for gold 'kundan' work and a renowned centre for diamond and emerald cutting. The temple market at Nathdwara is the best place to buy silver 'kundan' and 'meenakari' work

Old silver jewellery, which is much in vogue, can be bought in Jaisalmer in every nook and corner of the small bazaar area. Pratapgarh in Chittaurgarh district is famous for 'thewa' jewellery .The red, green, or blue foil below highlights the intricate gold work in the best possible manner.

Lac bangles are worn as a sign of good omen and are made in an astonishing variety of designs - some in flat colors, some iridescent or marbled, while others flash white fire from rhinestones or tiny mirrors at the turn of the wrist. Glass bangles, a perennial favourite of Indian women are easily available in most parts of the state, the greatest variety being offered in Jaipur and Jodhpur.

Jaipur is well known for its gold and silver enamelling. This traditional art of Meeriakariis also done in Nathdwara.

The thewa work of Pratapgarh is highly exquisite and popular, in this technique; designs are enamelled in gold on a glass base. The base used is generally green or red in color.
