Although, this enamelled jewellery originated in Rajasthan, but with time it has become quite popular all over the world. In this, precious stones are set first before enamelling them with heat-resistant colours like red, yellow, blue, white and green. One will usually find designs of peacock, flower, fish, or paisley on the sets.

Pachchikam Jewellery

Originated in Gujrat and Kutch, this jewellery is back in vogue. This jewellery is pretty fragile, but if you are not that keen on spending a huge amount of money on your bridal jewellery, then you can opt for this one as it uses silver instead of gold, making it affordable. Pachchikam jewellery is flashy and can be worn on any occasion.

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I
    had to ask! http://Yahoo.org/
