Lights. Camera. Action.
Indian International Jewellery Week is a forum which display’s art. The art of design and innovation, of craftsmanship and technology, of India’s finest designer jewellery. The country’s ability to create celebrity jewellery trends, enables an initiation to showcase India’s classic and contemporary collections.
So, what new does IIJW offer this year? Except the fact that it brings together the raw material of excellence, it also houses spectacular festivity, jewellery windfall and high quotient of glamour that includes designer gold and diamond jewellery.
Among the many themes that they housed, the glorious temples of India were one of them. Necklaces, bangles, rings, jhumkis with prominent pendants featured the collection. The appearance of Juhi Chawla was a visual delight to behold with the multiple necklaces comprising, magnificent long chain with a rustic motif, pronged neck piece and bold pendant in the centre for another version, statement rings and gold Jumkhas, she wore an indeed royal look!
One of the other themes which paid tribute to the Indian woman and cause of the girl child, featured jewellery that would be coveted by women of all ages. To top it all, Konkana Bakshi, former Miss India displayed a luxurious emerald tipped diamond prong necklace with matching earrings. Bollywood star, Neha Dhupia wore a splendid diamond and ruby set and complemented it with a gorgeous Maang Teeka. Another spell bounding collection which featured Sania Mizra, wore a shimmering choker with three strands of stunning diamonds and matching chandeliers. The “Zohrakshi” line inspired by nature’s beautiful flowers and created in gleaming gold, was studded with brilliant diamonds, exotic polkis, radiant rubies, sparkling emeralds and pristine pearls. There possibly cannot be a jewellery event without featuring “Festivals of India” as a theme. Drawing inspiration from regal Rajasthani pieces and the jewellery of the Nizam and Hyderabadi line; the collection embellished with glittering diamonds and impressive Basra pearls. The gorgeous Chitrangada Singh wore a superbly crafted diamond collar with circular pendants centred with a ruby, haath phool, kada and earrings.
Mere words won’t be enough to describe the grandeur of IIJW 2015. Calling it a jewellery event would be very puny as the efforts taken are magnanimous and enables jewellery to stand out as not only some expensive metal or rock but as an industry that is growing manifold!
