A Rajasthani sherwani has a design which is based on the Angarkha style where the sherwani has a side cut. This was the design that was followed during the time of the Maharajas, who were quite fond of luxurious lifestyles. Their attire was adorned with precious stones like pokhraj, panna and neelam among others. These designs are created even today however since the gem stones are very expensive; people prefer imitation and semi precious stones over them. Rajasthani sherwanis are easily distinguished due to the delicate embroidery which includes handwork of stones, crystals and dabka work.
