Silver Kundan Meena Necklace


When we talk about Indian jewellery we usually miss out on Kundan and Meenkari jewellery. As many people in India usually buy jewellery for wedding purpose keeping in mind of buying plain gold heavy necklaces as it is more glittery and a good future investment, but forgetting the beauty and craftsmanship of Indian Kundan and Meenakari jewellery.


Since now gold has been increasing it has become difficult for the common man to buy jewellery for luxury and style purpose which has lead behind the art and beauty of our Kundan meena jewellery. We at Girdharil Lal Co thought of bringing back the blast from the past as we have got this beautiful piece of necklace similar to Kundan jewellery at a reasonable price for you. This Necklace is made with Silver foil and real pearls, gold plating is done over it. Behind is the meena/enamel work done in green & red.


The making of Kundan jewellery started in the Mughal era around the 16th century in India as the kings too were found of wearing jewellery,they wanted a different kind of jewellery for their women, so the Indian craft's men created a new piece of art with their skills hands for their emperors.


Kundan jewellery is hand made with pure gold foil & stones which are embedded onto the wax such as diamonds,crystals,rubies and emeralds etc. Usually Meenkari work is done behind the jewellery piece. Meena work is the enamel mineral substance paint art work .The meenkari work on the jewellery is done in such a way that it gives an impression of studded stones. Meenkari work is done both in Gold and Silver jewellery. Silver meenakari jewellery has also become very popular in the recent times in Rajasthan and parts of Bihar.

Launch of the series – know your birthstone!


This month we thought we’d begin apprising you of your birthstones. Each month we’ll be posting an article on the birthstone of the month. Being the month of August, the lion’s been roaring down our alley! Not too surprisingly, we thought we’d begin our special series with the birthstone of the ‘Leo’ - Moonstone.

A Leo loves being the center of attention; a true one will have it no other way! Romantic, lavish, aggressive, naturally sexy and charismatic they just know how to charm their way through. Quite obviously they love the flattery and praise that comes their way – and why shouldn’t they – they’ve earned it, haven’t they?! But while most Leo’s deserve every ounce of the attention that comes their way, some are also known for their arrogance and insolence.

Incorrigible? We don’t think so! We recommend that the lion wear a moonstone – a stone known for its cooling properties that stimulates practicality, introspection and discernment. It strengthens creative intuition and improves general awareness and the ability to understand. The moonstone has a natural and soft shimmer which is accentuated in its almost milky consistency. Wearing the moonstone is sure to lend the fiery Leo the imperative balance that can glorify his/her persona.

Check this link to know your birthstone and to purchase through our store.

"Om Namah Shivaya" bracelet


Its festival season here in India! 2 days back we had Raksha Bandhan... Also colloquially known as rakhi, this festival is about sisters praying for a long life filled with health and prosperity for their brothers. The day starts with traditional puja's followed by a ceremony wherein the sister starts with applying red kumkum mixed with water and rice grains to her brothers forehead, following it with an aarti from a small camphor lit flame. She then offers her brother some sweet delicacies and ties a sacred thread as a symbol of her prayers on to her brothers wrist. It also carries the promose from her brothers part, to protect and care for her always.

We at girdharilal uphold this spirit of love, and had a special Raksha Bandhan theme running in our store. Our designers specially designed beaded and sterling silver rakhi's. Every sister wishes par excellence for her brother. It goes without saying that we would provide her with a variety of designs in silver to match the purity of her love for her brother.

We would like to showcase one of our designs, that generated the most interest and sale... This is often known as a kada. A silver band worn by men on their wrists, it carries a sacred inscription in Hindi spelling 'OM NAMAH SHIVAYA'. It is a prayer dedicated to lord shiva that is believed to bring blessings and divine powers.

We also customise these inscriptions and can engrave an inscription of your choice as well. Do let us know what you think of the piece, and contact us for orders and customised requests.

Beaded Pendant


Beaded Jewellery has become one of the hottest sellers nowadays.. And why shouldnt they! they look attractive and colourful and can beautifully enhance your attire. So I thought of showing you this lovely beaded pendant. It is made from a coral and a turquoise, a rare but befitting combination of colours... Or so we made it seem!


This piece resembles a bell. What gives it the ornate touch is the intricate carving done on the sides. This delicate silver carving.. meticulously contrasted by the natural oxidation of silver on its base lends the perfect balance between chunkiness and elegance. It can be worn with a silver chain or even with a thick black thread!

One of the interesting things about the red coral used in the pendant is that it is believed to serve as a good luck charm and is theorised to ward off evil spirits and bestow strength and vitality to its wearer. So not only will this piece help you get compliments... it may bring you lots of love and luck as well!
