A Treasure Trove of Heritage – Indian Jewelry Online
Known for its exquisite finesse, Indian jewelry evokes fascination and admiration in jewelry connoisseurs and lay admirers alike. From the precious ornaments of the Indus Valley civilization to the glittering jewels of Maharajas in the 20th century, the jewelry of the sub-continent has a long history. While it has undergone several changes throughout this period, its intrinsic richness and outstanding beauty have remained the same. A testament to the craftsmanship of indigenous artisans, jewelry is one of the significant facets of India’s variegated cultural heritage. Upholding and perpetuating India’s legacy of exotic jewelry, Anita Dongre presents the Festive Winter 2019 Collection of fine designer jewelry. Consisting of a magnificent assortment of earrings, necklaces, rings, bangles, mangtikkas, and naths, the collection spells unadulterated opulence. Crafted out of 18K and 22k gold and adorned with uncut (Polki) diamonds, Russian emeralds, pearls, and rubies, every piece from this collection is an embodiment of regal magnificence.
Apart from its dazzling beauty, this is a collection that is distinguished by its diversity. In the category of earrings, we have chandbaalis, jhumkis, dangler earrings, and drop earrings. Similarly, we have different types of finely crafted bangles including kadas and slim bangles. Likewise, our bejeweled choker necklaces, princess necklaces, and collar necklaces – basking in the glory of their own beauty – hark back to the shine and sparkle of Mughal-era jewelry. Suitable for brides with a predilection for all things traditional, our nath or nose rings have an unmistakably royal look. Even our rings, available in heritage designs, are set apart by their extraordinary fineness of craft.
This outstanding collection of jewelry online at once conjures up images of princesses lavishly dressed in swirling zari-worked lehengas and hand-worked, sequin-embedded sarees. Though it may seem as though styling them is simple given that they are all compatible with traditional Indian clothing, a bit of ingenuity will only serve to enhance the look of the wearer. Our Nirval Necklace for instance, a delightful piece of jewelry adorned with uncut diamonds and emeralds, will best go with sarees and lehengas in understated shades of beige, gold, silver, and mint green. It is best to avoid wearing large earrings with this necklace, lest attention be deflected from its magnificence. Our Zainee Earrings, featuring uncut diamonds and rubies, spell minimalism with remarkable élan. They are best paired with ruby red, dusty maroon, and magenta pink outfits with zari motifs and sequins. Our Rohana Mathapatti, unabashedly elaborate and extravagant, is the sort of thing that completes the bride’s attire. It can be paired with zari-embroidered lehengas in vivid shades of scarlet red, fuchsia pink, and imperial purple.
