Haryana is well-known for its jewellery, crafted in silver, bone, and lac. Folk jewellery follows traditional designs which have remained unaltered. Techniques of ornamentation like repoussŤ, chase, filigree, and enamelling are common, while beads are blown into beautiful shapes and sizes.
Silver jewellery made in Haryana can be divided into two broad categorises: the heavy ornaments worn by the rural folk and silver jewellery worn by urban women. Silver belts are a popular and are usually stiff broad bands that are flattened and twisted. RepoussŤ work and filigree and enamelling techniques are employed.
