How is this exquisite piece of jewellery created?
Derived from the word ‘Jad’, Jadau is a skill-intensive technique of making jewellery that involves precious gemstones to be embedded in gold. It involves a series of steps and a team of artisans to make a single piece of Jadau jewellery to perfection. It often demands more than a day just to embed three to four stones in the gold that is melted before for the same.
Once the design has been conceptualised one Karigar makes the base mould with a thin sheet of gold. Then, the piece moves to the second Karigar who does the intricate Meenakari work on it. After that, the piece heads to the next Karigar who embeds precious stones like Polki, emeralds, rubies and more, in the gold frame of the piece. After all the stones have been placed carefully within their frames, the piece is heated allowing the malleable gold to adhere to the gemstones. Then, the metal cools down and the stones are set in place.
