Most foreign countries bear a misconception that Indian jewellery only consists of ornaments made of pure yellow gold. Although, our love for gold and its colour may have created this notion, it is not the only metal used in the ornaments. Jewellery made of white gold, platinum, copper, brass, bronze, silver and even ivory are extensively popular in different parts of India.

Inspired from their traditions and cultures, different states of India have their own unique patented jewellery designs, which are popular worldwide.

While Delhi is popular for its luxurious Kundan ornaments, Orissa is famous for its delicate Tarakashi or silver filigree jewellery and artwork. The temple town of Nagercoil in South India is famous for its extravagant temple jewellery, and the intricate vibrant designs of Meenakari are popular all over Rajasthan. Surat is renowned for its generous inclusion of diamonds and electroplated brass, and copper jewellery are popular in Moradabad.

Varanasi and Purdilpur are famous for their glass-beaded jewelery collection, while Mathura is famous for its wooden-beaded ornaments. The Bidri work and fresh pearl necklaces of Hyderabad, the lac jewellery of Bikaner and the Thewa jewelry of Pratapgarh along with the exotic tribal bead ornaments of Andhra Pradesh, add a different twist to the already vibrant collection of Indian ornaments.
