Polki diamonds are one of the oldest forms of cut diamond, being first introduced in India by the Moghuls. They retain their original rough form and have a flat, polished surface with varied shallow facets at the edges to reflect back light. They are cut to follow the original rough stone so no two are alike and this makes every piece unique. The diamonds are set in 18kt and finally backed with a foil for maximum sparkle. These polkas are backed with a grey foil for a softer more vintage feel. They were worn by The Maharajas and are still the traditional jewels for Indian wedding ceremonies
