Difference between Polki and Kundan jewellery

01/6What are Polkis?

Polki or uncut diamonds are stones that do not undergo the fine finishing that is done to bring out the various shapes that are found in diamonds including pear, cushion, or emerald cuts. Polkis are thus known for their undone cuts and they do not have any particular shape or the shine of natural diamonds, but they do have a stunning charm of their own which requires a moment to admire.

02/6What is Kundan jewellery?

Kundan jewellery is made from the core wax of gold. The meaning of ‘Kundan’ states it is highly refined pure gold and mainly involves 24k pure gold. They are also known as artificial gemstones and originated in India. They are handmade from an ancient Indian art form which is known as Meenakari. They are smooth to touch while some can be faceted in nature.

03/6Why do people get confused between Polkis and Kundan jewellery?

Though Polki and Kundan’s jewellery have different designs, one has high diamond, and the other hand gold jewellery content. Polki is considered to be more expensive than Kundan but due to their look and cuts, people often get confused between the two. The craft of jewellery making is the same in both but Polki uses uncut diamonds in its natural state, while Kundan uses simple glass stones which have the essence of gold but are not precious at times.

04/6Price point

Polki jewellery pieces are more expensive than Kundan jewellery, as Polki requires the use of uncut diamonds in their raw state which is expensive. Kundan jewellery at times does not use pure gold wax in their making and thus uses simple glass to give the look which is stated at a lower price point. But pure Kundan will have around 24k gold which looks stunning.

05/6The traditional designs

Kundan usually gives a more traditional end to your outfits as most brides opt for Kundan jewellery as they lack purity of gold and are reasonable with a lightweight carriage which also gives a traditional end that is perfect for brides. But, Polki’s use uncut diamonds which are hard to shape and thus deliver a modern edge and are heavy to wear.

06/6The enameled undersides

The undersides of Kundan jewellery are enameled while in Polki jewellery the sides are made of pure gold foil, and at the back, you will see the same pattern, which makes the jewellery more authentic, pure, but heavy to carry, and its price point also stands the same. But as Kundan uses glass stones with minimal gold wax finishing, it is lightweight, and thus you would understand the difference.
