Because jewelry is like ice cream! There’s always room for more!
The word Kundan means extremely refined gold. Kundan jewelry is traditional Indian jewelry that involves gemstones set with a gold foil between the gemstones themselves and their mount. Kundan jewelry originated from the Rajisthani and Gujrati aristocracy some hundreds of years ago and it is among the oldest forms of jewelry in India. The city of Jaipur in India has always been the center of fine Kundan jewels. These intricate jewels took a start from the Rajasthan Royal court and were brought in the Mughal court as gifts to the Mughals. Initially Kundan jewels were made of gold but as time elapsed local jewelers started using silver and other metals to make Kundan jewelry to make it affordable to common man.
