HISTORY OF INDIAN JEWELRY
There is a profound history of Indian jewellery; they have been a pride of the royals as well as the country. The exquisite and finest craftsmanship of traditional Indian jewelry sets it apart from the rest of the world. From extravagant polki kundan jewelry to antique silver Indian jewelry, every design is created with exceptional detailing. Indian jewellery underwent a lot of changes over the centuries due to political and cultural impact. The bountiful supply of metal and gemstones brought financial prosperity to India through trade and export with other countries.
The Indian jewelry making process was started during Indus Valley Civilization around 1500 BC. During the period of Indus Valley Civilization gold and bead necklaces, gold earrings and metallic bangles were crafted by people. Mostly women wore jewellery during the period like clay or shell bracelets. They also wore thin bands of gold on their forehead, chokers, primitive brooches, earrings and gold rings. According to Hindu religion, silver and gold are regarded as sacred metals. Silver is a symbol of cool moon and gold is a symbol of the warm sun. Silver and gold both are the building metals of the traditional Indian jewellery.
Indian gold jewelry is considered a symbol of status and royalty. During the earlier times, only Maharajas and royal families had the rights to wear Indian gold jewellery. Navratana, an amulet worn only by Maharaja comprised nine gems including diamond, ruby, pearl, sapphire, topaz, emerald, cat’s eye, hyacinth, and coral. Each stone had a significant meaning and was considered a mark of power and royalty. Even diamonds were mined first in India only and played a big role in trade due to their value. These days diamond jewelry is a tradition in Indian weddings and also is worn as a status symbol. Pure gold jewelry is also bought for investment and financial security. Gold jewelry is gifted to daughters by parents and in-laws on their weddings.
