These bridal designer mogul sets are in vogue today. Bollywood has taken a fancy to these sets and many Indian brides can be seen wearing them. They come studded with stones and beads.
Although traditions have changed over the thousands of years since the beginning of Indian culture, jewelry remains an integral part of religious, regional, and social life.
Kundan jewellery received great patronage during the Mughal era and the most beautiful pieces were created in those times.
Lately designers have started using uncut diamonds/ colored glass or crystals as embellishments in sarees, lehengas and accessories like handbags and shoes. This is called as it involves embroidery with stones set in metal surround and looks similar to Kundan jewellery.
