Introducing Noor Mahal: The Polki Jewelry Collection

Introduction:

The world of jewelry is about to be enthralled by the captivating magic of Polki diamonds. Here at KN Jewels, we’re thrilled to unveil our first-ever Polki collection, aptly named “Noor Mahal” (Palace of Light). If you’re unfamiliar with Polki’s brilliance, prepare to be mesmerized by its raw beauty and enduring allure. And for those who already cherish jewelry ornaments, we have a dazzling treat in store where you can find engagement rings, earrings, necklaces, and many more!

The desire to create a Polki collection first sparked within me in 2019. However, the global pandemic forced that dream to be momentarily set aside. Earlier this year, I reignited that passion, and the result is the collection you see before you today. “Noor Mahal” represents a culmination of years of admiration for the intricate beauty and historical significance of Polki-Mughal jewellery. This fascination likely stems from my deep connection to India’s vibrant culture, cultivated through numerous childhood visits to India with my family, which later solidified during the significant years I spent studying there for both high school and college and the inescapable allure of Bollywood movies that started during childhood and continues even today. 

As neighbouring countries, Nepal and India share a rich tapestry of cultural exchange and artistic inspiration. Just as Nepal’s beloved momo has transcended borders to become a culinary staple in India, Bollywood’s influence has permeated fashion and jewellery trends in Nepal. This vibrant cross-cultural dialogue has been unfolding for centuries, and KN Jewels is proud to celebrate this interconnectedness with the launch of the “Noor Mahal” collection. This collection marks KN’s first foray into the world of Polki jewellery – a style celebrated for its uncut diamonds and timeless elegance. “Noor Mahal ” features an array of statement necklaces, chokers, earrings, bangles, and nose rings, each meticulously crafted to evoke the lavishness of Mughal royalty and the timeless grace of Himalayan queens.

Choosing a classic Polki style collection for our first foray into Indian-inspired jewellery with traditional styles was a deliberate decision. The classic elegance of uncut diamonds, combined with the meticulous artistry of Mughal designs, felt like the perfect homage to a rich legacy. It’s a foundation upon which I hope to build, experimenting with styles and interpretations while always honouring the traditions that came before.

Polki Diamonds: A Legacy of Uncut Brilliance

Polki Jewelry

 

The history of Polki jewelry is a captivating journey through time, steeped in artistry and cultural significance. Polki diamonds hold a unique place among the many treasures of the jewelry world. These uncut diamonds, also known as “unfinished diamonds,” captivate hearts with their natural beauty and radiant sparkle. Unlike modern cut diamonds renowned for their sharp brilliance, Polki boasts a distinct charm and character that resonated with royalty for centuries.

A Mughal Era Enchantment

The captivating story of Polki diamonds unfolds in the opulent courts of the Mughal Empire, a period renowned for its exquisite craftsmanship and love for luxury. Mughal emperors and empresses were drawn to Polki’s natural beauty, adorning themselves with elaborate pieces featuring these uncut gems. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and headpieces adorned with Polki reflected the era’s artistic sensibilities, often incorporating intricate floral motifs, geometric patterns, and elaborate enamel work.

From Royal Courts to Enduring Traditions

As the Mughal Empire’s influence extended, so did the popularity of Polki jewelry. It became an integral part of Indian culture, particularly in Rajasthan and Gujarat, where skilled artisans honed their craft, passing down generations-old techniques. Polki transcended its royal origins, becoming a cherished symbol of heritage, tradition, and celebration.

The Allure of Polki in the Modern Era

Today, Polki remains a beloved choice for weddings, festivals, and special occasions. Its timeless appeal lies in its uncut beauty, symbolizing purity, authenticity, and a connection to the past. Each Polki diamond is unique, possessing its natural inclusions and imperfections, making it a truly personal and meaningful adornment.

A Renaissance for Uncut Diamonds

In recent years, Polki jewelry has experienced a remarkable resurgence in popularity, not just in India but globally. Modern designers are reimagining Polki for contemporary tastes, creating pieces that blend traditional elements with modern aesthetics to appeal to a wider audience. The growing interest in sustainable and ethically sourced jewelry has further fueled Polki’s renewed appeal, as these diamonds are often sourced from older pieces or natural deposits, minimizing environmental impact.
