Moghuls evolved a new fusion with the Persian and Rajput indigenous techniques of jewelry making. The craft of  kundan (cloissone) and meenakari (enamelling) reached its zenith in the 4th century AD. The sunars' role was elevated above the other craftsmen; they enjoyed the patronage of the emperors and enjoyed an important position in the Royal Court. (The Craft Traditions of Pakistan, Noorjehan Bilgrami) Guru brings to you a revival of jewelry from the Indian subcontinent – designed to meet the needs of urbane  lifestyles, while retaining the historic integrity and elegance of yesteryears.
