Manfacturing Process of Assamese Traditional Jewellery
The Assamese Traditional Jewellery is typically handmade and the designs are mostly depict floral and faunal treasures of the region. The traditional designs are simple but decorated with vibrant red gem stone, ruby or mina. Black, Red and Green colours on Gold Jewelleries are most favourites among the buyers, these colours also dominate the traditional dresses of tribes and communities of the northeastern states. Some designs are directly derived from the elements of tribal culture and incorporated in these ornaments directly, and sometimes by blending. The Jangphai, Keru and Gamkharu were originally tribal ornaments. Lokaparo, which is an ornaments with two sets of twin pigeons placed back to back in gold, mina or ruby was originally worn by the high profile male dignitaries of the royal Ahom Dynasty. Gamkharu, a part of gold bangle, originally used by males only, have now become an essential part of the Bihu dance costume of girls.
