What is Meenakari Jewellery
This type of jewellery is beautifully hand crafted with a wide variety of bright colors on top of the metal. It can be hand painted on pure gold pieces or on a jewellery set that's gold plated. This hand painted jewellery shows the best color on a gold background instead of silver.
Why is Meenakari more expensive than traditional Indian jewelry?
Meenakari goes through a slightly longer process than traditional Indian jewelry like kundan and polki. The enamel is metal oxides mixed with powdered glass and then fired in a furnace bringing out the true colors.
