Tribal Jewellery of Kachhchh, Gujarat


Traditional tribal jewelry remains an integral part of village dress. Each silversmith specializes in a type of jewelry that embodies a particular community's traditional design. The jewelers and the communities with whom they work have strong relationships since they have lived and worked together for generations. Kachchh silver is known for its white quality which resists tarnish. Artisans use brightly colored glass called meena to accentuate traditional designs.
