Tanishq - Wedding Bridal Jewelry from Around India

2013 Apr 19 - by Preeti
Tanishq, the high fashion jewelry house, is never short of beauty and glory for brides in all of India.

To pay homage to the myriad of communities and groups across India, Tanishq created a special wedding collection for each of the largest communities. From the north with Bihar, Bengal, Rajasthan, Punjab and Gujarat to the coast of Maharastra and the south with Tamil Nadu, Kannada, and Telugu, brides across India could never be more beautiful.

Maharashtrian Bride

The Maharashtrian Lagan (wedding) reflects the state's vibrant and playful culture. The region has a long coastline, and the locals have formed a strong attachment to pearls.

The nath, introduced to the Indian culture by the Mughals, traces its origin to the Middle East and has become an emblem of marital blessedness. In the north and west, brides wear a round gold ring while, traditionally, Maharashtrian brides choose a pearl and colored stone, ambi (paisley) shaped nath.

The company has contemporary versions of the nath and the mundavalya (strings of pearls or flowers worn on the forehead), made from gold beads, diamonds and precious stones and pearls.

Crafted from handmade gold, uncut diamonds, rubies and pearls, Tanishq's kundan polki necklaces are divine.

 

Punjabi Bride

The Amritsari Jadau necklace with rubies, emeralds and pearls encrusted in gold sheets. It is a spectacular necklace created from the age old tradition of metallurgy where gold is scooped out to hold precious stones. The existing metal is then raised to create prongs which hold the stones in place.

This technique created a delightful illusion that the stones are not set in the metal but are a part of it. Karigars work, sometimes for over four continuous weeks, to create a single piece of jewelry.
