What is Temple Jewellery?
Temple jewellery is a kind of traditional jewellery that is embossed with depictions of various gods and goddesses from the temple of South India. It is usually crafted using precious gold, gems, and stones like emeralds, rubies, Kundan, Polkis, and diamonds in their cut and uncut forms.
Though this type of jewellery originated in the 9th century during the Cholas dynasty, it remains ever popular even today because of its standout loveliness and grace.
A regal Temple jewellery set is absolutely obligatory for the to-be bride to embody the most elevated kind of beauty even in this day and age.
The popular Nakshi jewellery collection is also a part of Temple jewellery. It too is very popular as antique temple jewellery set for marriage.
Different Occasions to Wear Temple Jewellery
Because of its religious embellishments and motifs, temple jewellery carries a great deal of religious sentiments. This is the reason, women like wearing it for occasions like weddings, ‘pujas’, births, etc. It is also worn by classical Bharatnatyam dancers a great deal of times, hence the moniker- Dance jewellery.
It would be stating the obvious when we say that Temple jewellery is the most sought wedding jewellery by our esteemed patrons. Temple Jewellery sets virtually fly off the deck.
The Temple Jewellery Collection at Mangatrai Neeraj
The mainstay of Temple jewellery at Mangatrai Neeraj is its design. It would not be wrong to say that Temple jewellery symbolises South India and is an invaluable part of South India’s cultural heritage.
This intricately designed jewellery resembles heavily ornamented pillars and rich sculpted walls of South Indian temples, especially Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu. We use precious gemstones in tandem with KC pearls, South Sea pearls and Basara pearls give lustre to our bespoke bridal jewellery collections. It is crafted in different designs like Lotus, Peacock, gods and goddesses etc.
The Process of Crafting Temple Jewellery
The long and arduous process starts with making moulds and dyes of motifs like temple tops, god idols, leaves, and birds, et. al. The gold is then rolled into flatter pieces, and then cut into strips and bent into the desired shape to make the mould.
More gold is used to fill in the mould, depending on the final design.
The piece is finished with a layer of polish to keep the lustre intact.
The craft that goes into making temple jewellery is very intricate and requires immense focus and a delicate hand. Depending on the intricacy of the piece, an individual Temple jewellery piece could take anywhere between a couple of days or multiple months to create.
Our elegantly crafted Temple jewellery is tailor-made to enhance your festive look. Our seasoned and highly-skilled designers and goldsmiths have replicated the original temple artwork into beautifully crafted necklaces, ear rings, bangles, bracelets, ‘Malas’, Chokers, finger rings and toe rings for you, the woman with an old soul and a modern disposition.
