Shine bright with these 22K gold sunflower-inspired ‘chaandbaalis’. The South Sea pearl drops add a modern vibe to this pair which is encrusted with white parabs, and keshi pearls. Wear it at your mehndi or sangeet ceremony, preferably with a bun, updo or plait that will enable you to flaunt these dazzling danglers effortlessly.
White and gold come together beautifully in this 22K gold pendant crafted in the shape of a Hindu goddess. This temple-inspired piece of art features many intricate details and superb craftsmanship. The weighty vibe of the pendant – which is actually pretty light – is contrasted with a delicate pearl strand.
The tinkle of ‘ghunghroos’ finds expression in these ‘jhumkas’ which once again feature signature artistry and craftsmanship of this notable brand. These 22K gold marvels are studded with blue, green and white precious stones. We recommend these for sangeet and traditional receptions – and the tinkle of these beauties will be music to your ears.
Inspired by the heritage and grandeur of ‘havelis’, this 22K gold regal neckpiece featuring rectangular sections above a cascade of danglers is perfect for a bride who wants to look regal on her special day. It is resplendent with floral motifs in ‘takkar kundan’ with ‘jadau karigari’, and multiple layers radiant with keshi pearls, gold beads and colourful stones.
These traditional Rajasthani ‘modiyas’ (bracelets) crafted in 22K gold are inspired by the beauty of peacock. Covered in rich, lustrous enameling and featuring green, blue and red accents, these bracelets with pretty peacock heads/beaks at both ends are versatile enough to be paired with multiple ensembles for diverse events – be it an outdoor cocktail party, mehndi or a sangeet.
