Jewel of the day: Sunita Shekhawat Meenakari Kundun and Diamond Pendant

I have a few pieces of Indian Mogul style jewellery and in general, I love the exuberance of Indian jewellery. This pendant by Sunita Shekhawat is made with two techniques: meenakari, (thank you Wikipedia) coloring and ornamenting the surface of metals by fusing over it brilliant colors decorated in an intricate design; and Kundan, a traditional form of Indian gemstone jewellery involving a gem set with gold foil between the stones and its mount.

I love the soft pink of the beads on the “chain” holding the pendant, echoed in the lavender on the pendant itself. The blue, so like French blue enamel, takes on a more relaxed look than traditional European enamel.

There are no prices shown, but you can contact Shekhawat here.
