Inlay workshops

This art of embedding precious jewels and metals into the surface of objects is known as Kundan – Jadai work and was introduced by the Mughals. In this technique, hyper purified gold leaf foil was inserted between the walls and precious and semiprecious stones such as diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires and tourmalines. The silver or gold foil placed below the stones enabled greater reflection of light through the stone, thus increasing its intensity and brilliance. Another form of surface decoration was Meenakari, the fusion of coloured materials such as cobalt oxide for blue and copper oxide for green onto the surface of metals to suggest precious stone inlay work, and was brought to Jaipur on Raja man Singh’s behest.
