The art of Kundan jewellery flourished in the royal courts of Rajasthan and Gujarat under the encouragement and patronage of the Mughals from the 16th century onwards.
Kundan pieces are extremely intricate and involve a lot of skilled labour. Each piece is hand-finished, which translates into countless hours of hard work by skilled artisans. The time taken to craft a small piece of kundan jewellery could vary anywhere between two to four months, depending on the craftsmanship and the intricacy of the chosen design.
