Meenakari statement ear rings & chain. Ethnic Indian minakari necklace jewelry. Party wear indian bead jewelry. Artikrti.
Indian Party Statement Necklace chain. 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 chain & ear ring set 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.
The combination of minakari pendant and the beadwork chain make this set a great party or wedding jewelry. A striking example of cosmetic fashion jewellery from India.
