Tanishq brings back Mughal romance with
'Jodhaa-Akbar' range

Two hundred craftsmen worked for 600 days, moulded 400 kg of gold and precious and semi-precious stones to recreate jewelleries of Mughal era in Ashutosh Gowariker's historical romance "Jodhaa Akbar". Tanishq, the leading jewellery brand, unveiled the jewellery worn by Aishwarya Rai, who plays the Rajput princess Jodhabai and Hrithik Roshan, who features as Mughal emperor Jalaluddin Akbar, in the movie.

"'Jodhaa Akbar' became a design and research challenge because it had to be the specific Rajput and Mughal traditions of the 16th century

"The wedding set, which Aishwarya wears in the film, is very heavy. It weighs around three-and-a-half kg. It was difficult for her to wear them. In fact, in the interviews she said the hardest part was to wear the jewellery. But that was how women lived those days and it is authentic,"
"Women used to wear large thumb rings with mirrors so that they could see their faces in the mirror at that time".
The basic difference between Mughal and Rajput jewellery was that Mughal jewellery was much finer in craftsmanship and Rajput jewellery was more rustic. At that time - Mughals used a lot more pearls than the Rajputs did."

In the 16th century, Rajput women use to wear 12 pieces of jewellery. "Starting with the 'borla' (hair pins) to anklets and we have made sure that we follow the same definition of an ensemble." 

"I think if everything is put together then the total weight will be about 300 kg and it's a huge investment on the part of the company. They had made 13 ensembles for Aishwarya and eight for Hrithik. They used gold and gems like emeralds, pearls, ruby, tourmaline & jade,"

In India, there is a tradition of passing the skills from one generation to other.

A blend of Mughal and Rajasthani designs, the handcrafted jewels on display are breathtakingly beautiful and give an insight to India's glorious past.

"Akbar's favourite gem was the emerald. In 'Akbarnama' there are actually blue prints of emerald mines, which Akbar had started and wherever you see him, he wears emeralds, which is the symbol of power."


The designs are mostly "kundan and meenakari"- inlay work common to Rajasthan. "The interesting thing about most 'kundan' and 'meenakari' is as many as five craftsman worked on one single piece. One made the mould, another set the stone, one inlaid the pearls and others made the colourful 'meenakari' work. So, each jewel takes a long time to craft. It's not factory-made. The jewellery was handcrafted.
