For those who came in a wee bit late, Gutta Pusalu is a traditional form of jewellery that comes from Coimbatore. Its most striking and definitely most popular distinguishing feature is the cluster pearls shaped like gorgeous mogra bunches, against a brilliant gold setting. There are touches of hot pink and festive green meenakari and kundan detailing, that add a delicious pop of colour to the jewellery.
What is is about Gutta Pusalu jewellery that makes it so well loved and cherished? Other than the lustrous pearls, it is the very art of crafting them to create an effect of a bunch or a garland of flowers. It gives them an extremely elegant, feminine and very Indian look. The hint of colours and the all-gold backdrop make Gutta Pusalu jewellery a sure-shot winner at weddings and other special occasions.
