This is simply cut glass jewellery as compared to polki jewellery which uses uncut diamonds. They look very similar though. It is created by setting cut, shaped and polished glass pieces and coloured glass /gemstones into gold or a faux metal base. As a matter of fact ,we can trace its roots to Rajasthan & Gujarat. Above all, it is a very old & traditional form of jewellery made and worn in India. Jaipur is a prominent city known for Kundan Jewellery.
Kundan Jewellery is much cheaper that actual gold & diamond jewellery or Polki jewellery.
