Ethnic Folk and Tribal Jewellery of India

Ethnic Folk and Tribal Jewellery of India
The folk and tribal jewellery of India is so varied, both in materials used, which include silver, lac, glass, shells and beads as well as in designs and mode of wearing, that a whole book would not be enough for documenting them.

Each state in India is renowned for its particular Traditional Jewellery of which Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, and the tribal zones in the central, eastern and southern regions are renowned for Silver Ornaments and a particular type of white metal, an alloy of copper or tin and pewter, that imitates silver.
