Brand RK Jewellers, located at Capital’s South Extension, is going to add vintage touch to Anju Modi’s touch with a collection that draws inspiration from the colonial era of the 18th century.
“Jewellery, at the time, used to be the main accessory, so each piece of the collection is a statement in itself. We have used colourless fancy shape diamonds and precious gemstones including emeralds and rubies for this collection.
“Achieving the right craftsmanship was of utmost importance as in that era, all the jewellery was completely handmade. So, the craftsmen had to be flown in from West Bengal to achieve the level of precision,” said Rohan Sharma, Managing Director, RK Jewellers South Extension.
The Shyamal and Bhumika collection will have The Be Royal designs by the brand.
“Elegant, sophisticated, composed and stylish, we are bringing together the rich diversity and splendour of Indian royal history, with its various hues and facets, to create heirloom quality regalia that can be passed on from generation to generation. Through this collection we honour our kingly heritage, responsible for nurturing and moulding the rich Indian legacy of jewellery making,” said Sharma.
The collection comprises wholly of traditional pieces, including tiaras, using old Indian techniques of jewellery making. The team of artists has delved into the country’s classical and imperial depths to create pieces inspired by the majesty of Indian monarchs and dynasties, borrowing inspiration from the mythical to the historical.
The collection uses rare gemstones, coloured pearls and tradition polki set in hallmarked gold.
