Types of ethnic jewellery that you can flaunt this wedding season

 Jewellery has traditionally had a place of immense significance in an Indian bride’s life. The bridal trousseau simply remains incomplete otherwise. In fact, different ornaments like the maang-tika, the chooda and the nathare symbolic of the blessings bestowed upon the woman at the beginning of this new journey in her life.
Even as more and more Indian brides are experimenting with Swarovski, diamonds, white gold and platinum jewellery, ethnic jewellery designs that have been around for ages still remain a favourite for many. Let’s re-introduce you to some Desi jewellery styles that will surely make you the cynosure of everyone’s eyes on your special day.
Kundan
As it is known to be the purest form of gold, Kundan is also the most expensive of all traditional jewellery. The craft of Kundankari gradually developed in Rajasthan after its modest beginnings in Delhi during the Mughal period. Kundan features different types of precious and semi-precious stones and gems skillfully set in gold. An elaborate Kundan neckpiece is bound to make you feel like a queen on your big day.

Meenakari 
Meenakari is the perfect choice for those who like to sport bright and colourful jewellery. This Rajasthani ornament style requires precious stones to be set on gold or silver metal before enameling them with heat-resistant colours like red, yellow, blue, white and green. Usually decorated with motifs of peacocks, flowers, fish or paisley, a pair of Meenakari earings will go well with both Western and Indian ensembles.

Lac
Lac or lacquer accessories have been appreciated all over the world owing to their versatility. They also consist of various enhancements like glass beads, flower shaped mirrors and decorative wires. Considered highly auspicious, most Indian brides and even newlywed women love wearing bangles made of lac.

Pachchikam
This ancient jewellery form, which includes uncut semiprecious stones and delicate glasswork, is increasingly becoming popular among women today.  Although it originated in the regions of Gujarat and Kutch centuries ago, it has still managed to stand the test of time. Interestingly, it has silver as its base metal instead of gold, which makes it an attractive option for those who want something eye-catching yet affordable.
