have to tell you that limit your junk display to one piece at a time).
The best place to buy junk jewellery in Kolkata is Esplanade. The hawker market at Esplanade can be the ultimate solution to all your Junk needs, but the junk jewellery here is awesome and you can bargain your heart out here. Here chunky neck pieces are available in almost all colours and shapes! The only problem here is you don't see any sellers trademark here. Noted fashionistas and dancers across India vouch for the junk jewellery they buy from this place.
Near Esplanade itself, there is the famous New Market area where you can buy Junk Jewellery. Buy them from shops or just browse through those mobile shops at the pavement of Lindsay street(which is known as New Market)you can choose a huge range of bright junk jewellery here too. And of course do bargain.
Another junk jewellery hotspot in Kolkata is at City Centre 2. At the entry itself you can see the open air junk jewellery stall in the middle of the City Centre 2 open space. This is a single store but houses all kind of junk jewellery and traditional jewellery like from ethnic beads to the new age plastic pieces!
The shops at Swabhumi are now not much frequented by the cities shoppers. But the junk jewellery shops at Swabhumi are awesome. I have visited this long back and could buy some really beautiful bangles. You can buy some great workmanship at Jute craft in some nearby shops and also try some beautiful silk hand work there. Apart from Junk jewellery you can buy some very good quality wood work at Swabhumi in Kolkata. In a visit to Swabhumi duringh festive days you can shop for junk jewellery as well as traditional jewellery here with an already discounted price.
Dakhineswar Kali Temple road is also an excellent place for buying Junk jewellery. Cheap terracotta pendant and earning sets are available here. The price here is unbelievably low and they still won't mind if you bargain.
Kolkatans have an unique and different taste for junk Jewellery. And perhaps this has made the city of joy a a hub of Fashion jewellery too. From the humble terracotta pieces to the new age stone jewellery Kolkatans can flaunt them with extra-ordinary ease.
