Overview for When Jewellery Speaks: Celebrating the Tradition of Kundan Minakaari

When Jewellery Speaks provides a fascinating insight into the genre of Kundan Minakaari Jewellery. Once a powerful symbol of regalia, this jewellery tradition continues to enjoy unbridled popularity even today. The book forms a veritable Kaleidoscopic odyssey as the Kundan Minakaari tradition journeys throught annals of history, comes alive with aesthetic grandeur, unravels layers of symbolism, describes the crafting process and techniques to every single detail, and highlights its craftspersons, along with its contemporary appeal and future prospects. A visual celebration of exquisite pieces of jewellery and artefacts from India, combined with an absorbing corpus of facts, make this book a compelling read. All in all, what comes to the fore is the need to preserve and cherish the cornucopia of traditions that India possesses, the cultural legacy of Kundan Minakaari being an integral part of the same.
