Female loves beaded necklace

Since time immemorial people love ornaments. It has especially tempted women and girls.There are different types, varieties, and categories of Ornaments. These are Diamond Jewelry, Gold or Silver Jewelry or Color stone Jewelry.

Beads are sphere shaped gemstones with a hole for stringing or hanging. Almost all of the precious, semi-precious and diamond are cut into beads. There are two types of beads plane and faceted. Simple strings of these gemstones are available in the market where each bead is capitulated to form a string.

Jewelers capitulate different kinds of beads mixing those in designed pattern. These are called multicolor beads. One can have one lined, two lined or multiline beads string according to his or her choice.

Jewelry includes Necklace, Ring, Pendent, Tops and Earrings, Armlets, Bracelets etc.There are various designs available for shopping in the market.Many other types of Jewelry are also produced. Beaded necklace is one of those.

Gems and Jewellery business are such that the Jewelers have to create new designs and varieties to provide it to fashionable girls and women (There are only a few kinds of Jewellery available for the boys and men). They have to create designs and varieties regularly in order to sustain in the market.

Beaded Necklace

Beaded necklace: Design is the speciality

Jaipur is the color stone manufacturing hub of India and the city has expertise in manufacturing beads.

Necklace and pendants are among the most popular Varieties of ornaments after rings. These also need new varieties and designs regularly. Necklaces and pendants with beads hanging are among the popular forms where designers become creative. This variety is an adequate mixture of strings of beads and a studded necklace or pendant. Beading a Necklace or pendant gives a gorgeous look to those ornaments.

Generally, this type of Necklaces and Pendants are manufactured in a two steps process. A gold or silver or studded Necklace is designed and manufactured in the first step. Then some colored stone (Ruby, Sapphires, Pearls, Coral, Tourmaline, Emerald etc) beads are put to hang on it. Both precious and semi precious stones beads are used in these ornaments. Diamonds beads are also used sometimes.

Beads are also of different varieties such as long beads and round beads. Both long and round beads are also found in the plane and faceted varieties. Drops and briolettes are also used as hanging in a necklace or pendant. These are also treated as beaded jewelry.

Similar kinds of Jewelry are produced in other metals such as copper, nickel or steel. Imitation or glass beads are used normally in these types of fashion and trendy Jewelry.

Preliminary process of stringing

Kundan Jadau and beads

Precious or Semi-precious colored stones beads are hung using some gold or silver metal threads. Designing of these types of necklaces is very important. It has to be designed in a way that hanging beads look attractive and match with the studded Necklace. Normally, similar colors are used in studded necklace and in the beads hanging with it.

Some special designs, I have seen, in which beads are studded. Small diamonds are placed over the beads. This way, the designer makes it unique.

A string of beads is also a necklace. Sometimes beads, long beads or drops are hung to give it a different look.

Jadau is the most popular form of beaded necklace. Kundan Meena Jadau necklaces are the most popular in this category. In almost every Jadau necklace and pendant, there are beads hanging. Only India manufactures this special variety of jewelry.

This type is not only popular but has an artistic value. Moguls loved it very much.
