Kolhapuri Saaj is known for its unique appeal, intricate designs and grandeur, it has always been popular among women. And to keep to the new trends and make it more wearable, the karigars are constantly experimenting with the jewelry, giving it the modern twist. Though the latest designs and patterns are popular among youngsters, elderly women prefer the traditional designs of Kolhapuri saaj. The saaj comes in limited designs but we try to make patterns which suit the young taste as well.
Known for its unique appeal, Kolhapuri Saaj has now become an emblem of grandeur. May it be a traditional woman or a fashion-forward lady, Kolhapuri Saaj has attracted all with its very intricate designs which are exquisitely carved with complete accuracy. Kolhapuri Saaj has now become a symbol of a woman from a royal or traditional family.
There's a saying that a traditional Kolhapuri woman can't be depicted unless and until she is wearing a Kolhapuri Saaj. Although there are few latest designs and patterns in this ornament; woman prefers for the 'old is gold' traditional design. Traditionally the necklace is made of 21 leaves or pendants but contemporary wearers prefer 10 to 12. Customarily the necklace is handmade, taking a person a week to make, however challenges such as a shortage of skilled manpower and its high cost have prompted the attempt to mechanize its production.
The design can be described thus as: (The) 21 design-portions mostly comprise avatars of Vishnu, and symbols of ashtmangal. The Kolhapuri saaj begins with chaphe-kali (frangipani buds) and ends with kirti mukh (a good luck charm). In line are panch panadi (holy leaves), bel leaf (leaf offered to Lord Shiva), bel plant (a plant of three united leaves), ridge gourd (symbolic of all plants), karle or Bitter gourd (life-giving herb), Sun, manik panadi (a gem, symbolising friendship), matsya (fish, or incarnation of Vishnu), Koorma (incarnation of Vishnu), Narasimha (incarnation of Vishnu), rose, beetle, chandra (Moon), emerald, gandbhairi (symbolising unity of husband and wife), morchel (symbolic of kingdom and richness), peacock feather, shankha (Conch), wagh nakhe (tiger nail, symbolising power of weapons), and snake (symbolising union). Other symbols that are used could also be kamal (lotus), kasav (tortoise) and bhunga (bumble bee). The Kolhapuri saaj is woven into green colour silk, and further ornamentation is done. Kolhapuri saaj is very famous among Maharashtrian women. This saaj is made of 10 panadi's having a different meaning for each panadis and a two red+green panadis have been added to give it a traditional and ethnic look. Every pendant is well-known for its own meaning. 10 pendant defines the ten avatar or Lord Vishnu, 2 pendant have ruby & emerald stone. Made with special cut vertical beads this saaj is a perfect choice for all ages.
The Kolahpuri Saaj has special importance for Maharastrian women. Kolahpuri Saaj is made up of different designs of leaves and carvings in it. Small pendants having different designs are strung with a big ruby pendant. It's an expensive affair to buy Gold Saaj, so at Kalapuri we have tried to make this Women’s wish true by imitating it in Imitation jewellery with best affordable prices.
