Kundan jewellery is created by setting accurately-shaped, cut and polished multi-coloured gemstones into an exquisitely designed pure gold or faux metal base.A skeletal framework (called Ghaat) forms the foundational core of the ornament. The Paadh stage involves the pouring of wax over the frame, which moulds itself to the design’s shape. During the Khudai process, the stones or uncut gems are fit into the framework. The Meenakari (enameling) adds the much-needed finesse and depth to the design, and the intricate process is concluded with the Pakai, which involves the cementing of gems with the gold-foiled framework, eventually soldered together. The gems are then polished during Chillai process to lend them an ultimate shimmering feel. The stringer adorns the ornament with dangling gems to add the final verse to complete a timeless tale of ever-glowing magnificence!
