Kemp or Temple Jewellery is a craft form of making jewellery that is known to have originated in Vadaserry (Nagarcoil district) of Tamil Nadu. It was initially made for the royals (Cholas, Pandyas and Rayars between 9th to 16th century) and then later worn by classical Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi dancers. Even today this jewellery is extensively worn by brides and women of South India. The characteristic feature is the intricate setting of “kemp” red Spinel stones along with green and/or blue stones as well. The jewellery was also made using rubies, emeralds and pearls and gold foil cover on them.
