Types of Jewellery and their usage
Kundan: This is one of the most ancient forms of jewellery, patronised by royals. It is mostly worn on traditional occasions like weddings. Kundan is preferred for morning/ day wear. All authentic Kundan pieces are completely handmade by first making thin pure silver shells of desired shape, into which wax is poured. This is sealed with thin silver foil and set.
Since this is a handmade process, no two sets can ever be completely identical.
Meenakari: This form of jewellery design originated during the reign of Raja Man Singh of Jaipur. Meenakari is essentially enameling or decorating the metallic surface of jewelry with colors. Considered to be one of the most technical forms of jewelry, the art of doing Meena work requires perseverance and an eye for detail.
American Diamonds: Cubic Zirconia / American Diamond is well known as a substitute for diamond, due to its high hardness and great fire. But in recent years, it has established itself as a gorgeous gem in its own right. It is a beautiful synthetic gemstone that is durable and inexpensive and now even comes in any color of the rainbow, making it even more desirable. Because of its low cost, durability, and close visual likeness to diamond, synthetic cubic zirconia has remained the most gemologically and economically important diamond simulant since 1976.
The versatility of this gemstone lends itself to many product forms like maang tikkas, payals, bajubandhs as well as the more common necklace and pendant sets
American Diamonds are suitable for all occasions- traditional as well as modern and suit almost all types of attire, depending on the type.

Victorian: The jewellery of the Victorian era reflects the ever-changing fortunes of the Victorian Period. The jewels of the period reflect a feeling of confident tranquility. Bold ornaments are decorated with intricate engraving, delicate enamel work, and serpentine designs. The jewels are often accented with seed pearls, turquoise beads and pink coral.
Victorian designs are usually characterized by a main bold pendant which is surrounded by other equally bold motifs. Various kinds of finish accentuate the intricate workmanship on the piece.
Victorian jewellery is in vogue these days- with almost every jewellery house stocking a wide range of Victorian inspired designs. Both elegant and yet bold enough to capture attention Victorian earrings always make a statement, even when worn alone.
Fusion: This type combines more than one form of jewellery such as Victorian and Kundan, bringing the beauty of both jewellery forms together in one piece. This type compliments contemporary western wear such as evening gowns with a hint of ethnic Indian embroidery as well.
