Bur, first of all, you should be aware of how Polki and Kundan jewellery actually look together and what sets them apart?
So, here is a complete guide on how to distinguish them and how much do they cost.
Difference Between Polki And Kundan Jewellery?
We have already talked about the difference between them in our previous blog. But here is a bit summary about it.
Kundan jewellery is created with the help of glass stones such as emeralds, rubies and sapphires. These stones are then embellished upon the base which is usually gold. Because of the use of stones, this Kundan is way cheaper than Polki. On the other hand, Polki jewellery is way expensive than Kundan because it is made of unfinished natural diamonds. They are basically the uncut form of diamonds that are used in their raw form without any lab processing. It is also much shinier than Kundan jewellery.
How much do they cost?
If you are wondering how much does a polki set cost then a polki choker generally ranges around INR 4-15 lakhs, depending upon the design, number of stones as well as labour. Whereas for those who are wondering “how much does a real Kundan set cost”, it is way cheaper than Polki and it costs nearly between INR 50,000 to 2 lakhs. One common question that people ask: “Is Kundan expensive than gold jewellery?” and the answer is yes. Gold jewellery is made purely out of gold but Kundan jewellery uses the same amount of carat of gold, which makes it less pricey.
Also, go to a trusted vendor or store while going shopping for bridal jewellery as they will help you understand its making as well as the design of the jewellery. Also, carry your lehenga’s dupatta or blouse to see whether polki goes with it or kundan jewellery.
Styling tip: You can go for a heavy choker or an elaborate neckpiece with a traditional bridal saree or a lehenga as it will look great when paired with them.
