How is Kundan jewelry made?
Making of Kundan jewelry follows a very intricate process. It is a long process with each stage handled by a separate, skilled worker.
It starts with beating of copper in a very thin sheet. This acts as the base for the jewelry. This sheet is then filled with lac, or laakh. Lac is a byproduct of tree sap and known to be a natural resin. It is in this lac that the stones or gems are set with a help of hot coal.
