Jewellery of Andhra

Glass bangles and beads of Papanaidupet in Chittor are beautifully made by the local artists in almost all the colorful shades. Gold and silver jewellery have inherited the designs from the Mughal culture and the craftsmanship displays the elegance of the art. Artists here make gold covered jewellery in which the combination of silver, brass and copper are made into alloy and gold is drained into fine wires and alloy which is superimposed on the alloy. Bangles, hair pins, necklaces, earrings are few beautiful examples.

Lac jewellery remains as a traditional craft which is today replaced by synthetic stones, glass rings, mirrors, aluminum and glass beads. Cuff links, Christmas decorative items, key chains, kumkum boxes are few famous products.
