Meenakari work originated in Persia. It was later introduced in India through the Mughal invaders. However, over the course of time, it has been frequently associated with the culturally vibrant state of Rajasthan. From the bylanes of the old Pink City (old Jaipur city), we bring to you Master artist Jaswant Kumar Meenakar for whom the art of enamelling is a tradition that has been running in the family for over 450 years now.
Meenakari is now normally done by creating a design on brass, copper, silver and gold with the help of simple tools. The engraved design on the metal is filled with coloured enamels to have a final vibrant output. Meenakari jewellery is considered one the most royal jewellery in India.
Did you know? On silver, Meenakari work can be done with limited colours only like green, pink, black and blue. However on gold, all colours can be used.
