Polki speaks of a gentle, soft sparkle, playfully catching light and showing off its luster. It was first introduced in India by the Mughal dynasty, linking it to a regal and rich Indian heritage. Polki in its purest form is raw, uncut diamonds, having no enhancement or chemical treatment. Gold is shaped into whatever design the jeweler desires, after which the Polki is set into this base. Distinctive due to its uniqueness and purity of natural form, Polki reminisces of old-world charm, evoking an artistic sentiment.
