Handcrafted in Jaipur
The history of Meenakari jewellery dates back to when the Mughals and the Rajputs shared a close alliance. Originally worn by the Rajputs as an expression of royalty, Meenakari continues to serve the same feel to the ones wearing it. All Meenakari jewellery available at Kessa is handcrafted at Jaipur which has been home to this type of jewellery from a very long time. The exquisite art shown of the statement jewellery pieces speaks for itself. Meenakari screams the rich culture of Rajasthan throughout India.
Although Meenakari jewellery does not come with a very hectic maintenance routine, it does need to be kept carefully wrapped in cotton for a better longevity. These pieces can be worn on a regular basis. Kessa deals in silver Meenakari jewellery which can easily be cleaned with a dry cotton cloth and you will be good to go.
