Ever since human beings came into existence the primitive man has used flowers, leaves, bones, stone, and shell for decorating themselves. The art of decorating one’s body carried forward and evolved with the upcoming civilization. As the art of metallurgy evolved, the man started experimenting with metals like copper, gold etc and these experimental developments are reflected in the jewellery also.
Right from Indus Valley Civilisation to modern times, we have a host of jewellery designs. India Post has commemorated a variety of jewellery types and dressing styles on stamps. We have a blog that discusses the Art of Adornment as depicted on the stamps.
