Beautiful Is Powerful By Khanna Jewellers

beautiful is powerful 1

The one thing that I absolutely love about the marriage season is getting dressed up! With the kind of indo-western influence that has weaved up in our traditional ways of ‘ethnic dressing’ the game has anted up many folds. Right from wrapping up a dhoti-saree ensemble to bringing in the vintage Sabyasachi silhouettes, I just can’t get enough of experimenting with the apparel traditions for every family function. Now experimentation can be a big hit or a faux-pas, but one element of the entire dressing game keeps everything in sanity – The Jewels. For my daily dress up, I prefer keeping a minimalist approach and opt for jewels that are sublime in nature. But when it comes to dressing up for a family gathering, I just can’t do without making a statement. Even in that case, my preference is wearing something which is exclusive, rich in elements and yet makes me look young and fresh! Khanna Jewellers have come up with an exclusive range of royal ornaments that tend to make you look like a contemporary queen. If you too follow the likes of Sonam Kapoor (like me) and are in awe of how flawlessly she carries traditional jewels in a refreshingly modern avatar, then you are definitely going to fall for this range of jewels by Khanna Jewelers. My Experience When I got a chance to visit their store at South Extension, Delhi and try out some of their signature designs; I was definitely left spellbound by the beauty of the craftsmanship and the whole concept ideation upon each piece of the jewel. One can definitely feel more beautiful and powerful by simply adorning one of their Polki necklaces. What I really loved about the collection is its sophisticated design. Each peace emphasizes on the placement of the precious …

A Zotiqq Jewellery Experience

August 23, 2014

Jewellery can either make or break your style. Accessorize it right and even a pair of basic denims and plain tank will upgrade to a runway-style #OOTD. I am a jewelry junkie. Why I call myself a junkie? Well, because everytime I step out for shopping, no matter what; I always end up adding more jewels to my already flooding jewelry collection. Not to forget all those times when my mom has scolded me for buying some more of the junk I already have. You see, clothes can be worn out, but jewelry stays forever. Don’t remember how many times I have been complimented for wearing a particular jewel rather than a particular apparel! Now that I have made my point, let me introduce you to one such hub of artificial jewels that range between vintage, classic to cocktail styles. Presenting to you Zotiqq.com – the venture by my dear friend and blogger Ritu Rajput of The Indian Beauty Blog. The first time she introduced me to her expansive jewellery collection, I was literally blingstruck! And when she asked me if I would like to feature some of the products on #Kalapalette, it was a straight away yes (tee hee) from me. Combination Rings Set Taking up the midi-rings trend that has been trending since a while now, I had to invest in a few combos from Zotiqq. They are gold, they are classy and they are frigging adjustable. One issue that I have faced earlier with rings is that they can’t be customised for your finger width. But Zotiqq offers that option.

I have seen plenty of such coins necklaces with various other labels, but somehow they just don’t fancy me much. But this one stood out from …

India International Jewellery Week Dairy – Day 2

April 15, 2013

Day 2 of IIJW saw an extravaganza of Bollywood glitter. Starstruck attendees had a lot to talk about by the end of the day. Renowned jewellery houses and designers showcased dazzling adornments, some took inspiration from the rich heritage of North India, while a lot of the shows celebrated womanhood and it’s importance.  Although I personally was a little disappointed when it comes to the collection showcased, we got to see the same old Rani Haar, Polki/Kundan raw-cut designs, temple jewellery and lots of precious and semi-precious stones. However the 2 day affair was executed with perfection, with shows running on time and lots of in-between time for us to relax/write-reports/catch up with fellow journalists.
