Reviving Antique Kundan Pieces: A Journey of Restoration

Antique jewellery has a charm and history that is unmatched by any modern piece. The intricate designs and craftsmanship of antique Kundan jewellery make them truly special and unique. However, over time, these pieces can become worn and damaged, requiring careful restoration to bring them back to their former glory.

At Be Sunset, we understand the value of preserving and reviving antique Kundan pieces. Our brand is dedicated to creating sustainable fashion and jewellery, and we believe in the importance of breathing new life into these timeless treasures. In this blog post, we will take you on a journey of restoration, showcasing the intricate process of reviving antique Kundan jewellery.

The Art of Kundan Jewellery

Kundan jewellery originated in the royal courts of Rajasthan in India. The word "Kundan" refers to the process of setting precious stones, such as diamonds, emeralds, and rubies, in a pure gold setting. This intricate technique involves shaping thin sheets of gold into intricate designs, and carefully setting the stones into the framework. The stones are held in place by highly skilled craftsmen who use a combination of heat and pressure to secure them.

This delicate art form requires years of experience and mastery. The intricate details and fine craftsmanship of Kundan jewellery make it a highly valued and sought-after collector's item.

The Journey of Restoration

Restoring antique Kundan pieces requires a delicate touch and a deep understanding of the craftsmanship involved. At Be Sunset, we have a team of highly skilled artisans who specialize in the restoration of Kundan jewellery. Here is a step-by-step journey of how we revive these precious pieces:

Step 1: Assessment

Before beginning the restoration process, our team carefully examines the antique Kundan piece to assess its condition. We look for any signs of damage, missing stones, or loose settings. This thorough assessment helps us develop a plan of action for the restoration.

Step 2: Cleaning and Repair

The next step is to clean the antique Kundan piece to remove any dirt or grime that may have accumulated over the years. We use gentle, organic cleaning solutions to ensure that the piece is not further damaged during the cleaning process.

Once the piece is clean, our team begins the process of repairing any damaged or broken parts. This may involve replacing missing stones, soldering loose settings, or reshaping the gold framework. Our artisans have a keen eye for detail and work meticulously to ensure that every element of the piece is restored to its original state.

Step 3: Re-polishing and Finishing

After the repair work is complete, the antique Kundan piece is carefully re-polished to restore its shine and luster. This involves using special polishing tools and techniques to bring out the brilliance of the gold and the stones. The piece is then finished with a protective coating to prevent tarnishing and preserve its beauty for years to come.
