About Kundan Jewelry

You enjoy your cultural identity and individual style, so you should show it off with Kundan jewelry. This beautiful, decorative gold and gemstone jewelry is created by setting gems in gold foil and then into the jewelry for a unique look. Believed to be the oldest jewelry made and worn in India, Kundan jewelry is often seen today in traditional Hindi weddings. This jewelry can be found in many different styles and gems in the vast inventory on eBay. Typical gems in Kundan bridal jewelry are rubies, pearls and diamonds, and they can be simulated or real. Additionally, these pieces are most often seen in yellow gold, and not in the trendy white gold or platinum settings of the West. This style of jewelry is most prominent in necklaces and dangle earrings, although bracelets and rings may also be seen. One special jewelry piece worn in Indian weddings is Kundan hair jewelry known as a choti, which is draped over the top of the head and rests on the forehead. Chotis are the perfect crown to a beautiful Indian bride's set of jewels.
