Our initiative ‘Love Actually’ features engaged couples and captures candid moments of love between them. The series celebrates the beautiful people as they embark on their journey of love together. Over a fabulous makeover and a photo shoot, we get these couples to share how they met, show us their platinum love bands and talk about their day of love.
We met Vaishali and Jay at the Turf Grounds for a day filled with a game of cricket. They tell us all about their journey of love and we can’t help but swoon over this couple that is all set to begin the beautiful innings of their life together.
Vaishali and Jay met in an arranged marriage setup. “For us, it wasn’t about making a list of the qualities our respective partners had. It was just the visceral reaction to them after we spent time together. Sure, we adore things about each other – but the totality of “him” or “her” is what we fell in love with,” the couple says.
“It was instinctive, like an effortless intake of breath. Falling in love with each other wasn’t falling at all. It was like walking into a house and suddenly knowing you are home. And the feeling grows stronger with every passing day,” says Vaishali. “We don’t need a complicated stream of words, questions or sentiments to express what we are feeling. It’s amazing how we can talk for hours about nothing and feel like we spoke about everything. We admire each other and share a bond of trust and friendship that we cherish. When we have each other, we have everything!”
A Platinum Day of Love awaits this new team, on the pavilion.

Stumped about the score-card? The truth is, everyone wins in the game of love.
This one’s a (wicket) keeper!
High-five, you’ve been hit for a six!
It’s the team huddle, this partnership for life forged on a perfect pitch.
Game, set, ‘match’!

This game goes on forever…
…And so does their love for Platinum Jewelry…
Vaishali to Jay: “Yes, I admit, you’ve bowled this maiden over!”
Fun loving and cute, the couple wore platinum love bands from Nikita Jewellers. Makeup artist Heema Dattani gave Vaishali a classic look for the day and P16 Studios captured every precious moment in stunning frames.
All set to tie the knot, the platinum bands signified the anticipation of their the start of their journey together. Having chosen to spend their lives together, they have a strong foundation of friendship, respect, and love to build this marriage on. There couldn’t be a better way to symbolize this bond than Platinum Love bands.
We wish the lovely couple all the love, luck and a lifetime of happy memories together.
