Jewellery has been part of the Indian civilization since ancient history. Ornaments made of gold, silver, copper, ivory, pottery and beads have been discovered in civilizations as ancient as the Harappa and Mohanjodaro.
This art has been perfected with modern styles and further materials used. Besides gold and other metal jewellery, stones, conch shells, wood, plant seeds etc. are used. Ethnic patterns, with intricate motifs are much in demand for their absorbing styles.
