Jadau Jewelry forms one of the major examples of high skilled craftsmanship that was brought into India by Mughals. Historically speaking, the tradition of Jadau work has been in practice in the states of Rajasthan and Gujarat since the Mughal era. Jadau jewellery is also called engraved jewelry.
Many people tend to confuse Jadau with other artworks such as Kundan, Polki and Meenakari. Here is a proper clarification. Kundan is jewelry that is embedded with glass beads. Polki uses the same technique, the only difference being that the stones here are not glass but uncut diamonds called Polki. Meenakari is the art of using enamelling in jewelry. And finally, Jadau is a technique that also uses Polki, Meenakari and Kundan but the technique varies a bit from Kundan work. Jad means to be embedded and that is the technique used by artisans who craft this style of Jewelry.
As with many others of our jewelry traditions, Jadau was brought into the country by the Mughals. It was then perfected by the Indian craftsmen of Rajasthan, specifically Bikaner. Even today it is acknowledged that the Jadau work from Bikaner is exceptional. However, Bikaner is not the only centre for Jadau work. Over time this tradition has spread to other cities such as Jaipur and even to other states such as Gujarat. Today Rajasthan and Gujarat are the most well known states for Jadau work. These days, though, Jadau is also available through major jewellers all over the country.
Jadau work is complicated and involves a team of craftsmen, each of whom must know his work very well. The jewelry takes a long time to make – setting just four to five stones can take a whole day. Each craftsman has a specific task. The primary design of the ornament is made by the chiterias.
