A meenakari (enamelled) bangle from Jaipur, India.
The art of decorating metal with enamelling, or meenakari, was introduced to India by the Mughals. Raja Man Singh of Amber brought meenakari to Rajasthan at the turn of the 16th century. Man Singh brought skilful craftsmen from the Mughal palace at Lahore and established them in Jaipur, which became the centre of Meenakari. Traditional Mughal colours like blue, green and white dominate the art of meenakari, as shown here.
This piece forms part of a collection of meenakari jewellery, with matching earrings also available.
