IIJW 2011 DAY 4—KASHI JEWELLERS’ magnificent line created a sensation at the INDIA INTERNATIONAL JEWELLERY WEEK 2011

With state of the art factories in Kanpur and Kolkata the Kashi Jewellers collection at the India International Jewellery Week 2011 had a line-up of pieces that were traditionally striking. From handmade couture and polki diamond jewellery ranging from one carat to hundred carats, the company’s bridal collection on the ramp was a breathtaking line.

Diamonds, coloured stones and polki were turned into long necklaces, earrings and bangles. Three award winning pieces which were outstanding included the Rainbow Peacock armband made from a melange of coloured gem stones.

The Gold Wave bracelet had a mix of kundan and rhodolite crafted in 22 carat gold with Indian Minakari. The Life in the Ocean piece had the ocean colours with the fish motif sparkling with diamonds and gold with enamel work.

The other beauties on the ramp were the cuff with diagonal floral diamond motif, the gold lacy neck piece with the matching floral design on one side, the flowing V necklace ending in two pearl drops, the multi coloured diamond, ruby, emerald and rows of gems around the neck and the tourmaline, jade and pearl set.

Making the bridal jewellery collection more comprehensive were nose rings and Maang Tikka to match the various gem studded collars.

The glittering four rows of kundan and minakari around the neck, the Kaan Phool and the very unconventional towering ring; the turquoise, coral, ruby, emerald, diamond prong neck piece and the innovative hair ornaments gave more options to bridal jewellery. Rows of emeralds and pearls were dreamt up to create Haars and strands of kundan edged with pendants alternating with pearl streamers were stunners.

Ending the show was the very sexy Isha Koppikar wearing a magnificent kundan, ruby, emerald creation spread over shoulders and yoke and teamed with impressive giant earrings, bracelets and rings.

To balance the beauty of the jewellery the elegantly designed net saris with minimal embroidery in pastel shades by Jashn added to the glamour of the presentation.

Design, style, beauty, elegance, tradition and contemporary touches were the highlight of the Kashi Jewellers collection.
