In Rajasthan, jewellery plays a key role in the enrichment of heritage; it is well renowned all over the world for its majestic, vibrant and allegorical jewellery. Every piece of jewellery has its different religious meaning and believed to be sacred.

Jewellery has its own place in the traditional attire of Rajasthan as wearing jewellery is considered to be part of the culture which makes them unique, outstanding and colourful.

One of the most popular bright-coloured jewellery of Rajasthan is Kundan-Meena jewellery. Kundan is usually made from lac, which is a natural resin. This jewellery has work of gems and Meenakari on both the sidesthus making exquisite patterns with exciting colours.

These jhumkas have void hemispheres with bells of similar length attached in the form of concentric circles. The inner circles have the smallest but longer bells then outer circles.
