Jaipur Jewellery Show at IIJW showcases region’s creations
MUMBAI, August 21, 2012 – Presenting the creations of nine prominent jewellers, the Jaipur Jewellery Show at the India International Jewellery Week was a magnificent display of jewellery from that region.
Prime sponsors of the Diamond Jewellery promotion, Rio Tinto backed the creations of Abaran Jewellers, Birdhichand Ghanshyamdas Jewellers, Ghatiwala Jewellers, Jaipur Jewels, Kalajee Jewellery, KGK Entice (India) Pvt Ltd., PC Totuka and Sons, Pride Jewels and Rawat Jewels.
Gems and precious metals gleamed under the arc lights as the models glided down wearing 15 stunning sets.
The JJ Show first started in 2003 in Jaipur and will have its 10th edition in December 2012 in Jaipur. Presenting diamond jewellery with coloured gemstones, each piece was a work of creative craftsmanship and design.
Opening the show was the gold Polki paisley-cum-collar that was imposing in style and drama. The floral danglers, the pear shaped pendants attached to a trellised necklace, the very unconventional snake pendant neckpiece with a solitary ruby and the amethysts/ diamonds alternating for a necklace showed the skill and craftsmanship of the Jaipur creators.
When it came to diamonds, it was the multi prong set, the twinkling mesh with a single emerald for necklace, earrings and bracelet and the mesh scalloped collar with three oval pendants that made an impact on the audience.
The stark black figure hugging sheaths created by Vikramjeet were ideal for the fast paced, well edited and slickly presented show.
Top model and latest Bollywood entrant Simran Kaur Mundi, Miss India 2008, made a dramatic show stopping entry, decked in jewellery comprising five strands of Polki and gold chains, matching Haath Phool, nose ring and Maang Tikka.
The very dashing, dimpled, darling of Bollywood, Ayushman Khurana, star of the hit film “Vicky Donor”, was a favourite showstopper as he strutted down the catwalk in a stylish black sherwani and white Pathani salwars. The dazzling Maharaja double brooch with pearl chains was the regal ornament for this lively star.
