Indian meenakari dangling "jhumki" earrings.  Meenakari, also called enamelling, is the art of decorating a metal surface by fusing mineral substances to it. Meenakari was introduced to India by the Mughal kings in the early 16th century. So, this delicately designed ear ring comes from workmanship which dates back to some 400 hundred years.

The meenakari work is very similar in craftsmanship to the miniature design and coloring on the famous Faberge eggs. The design is etched into the metal and then the 'meenakar' or the artist applies the color that has to be fired [at 750 to 850 degrees Centigrade], for it to be fixed onto the metal. Once cooled, it is then burnished or polished with agate and tamarind solution.

This particular piece of work called the "jhumki" is inspired by the meenakari work from a town called Jaipur and features lovable little graphics in white and gold. Three tiny but exquisite pieces make this delicate double-dangle: the tiny full-moon ear piece, the pair of dangling bells and the transparent bead at the bottom. Pair this with any white, gold or pastel ensemble to complete the pure beauty in you.
