Johara Jewels spells luxurious couture jewellery with each handcrafted piece. The collection presented by Divya K Ahuja, a graduate from the Gemological Institute of America was created from 24K and 18K yellow and rose gold as well as sterling silver for the India International Jewellery Week 2011.
Her inspirations were the beauty of Indian mythology and the wonderful stories of ancient India. Each piece of ornament was a beautiful tale that will evoke indulgence and desire in any woman.
Calling her collection “Parisian Couture” Divya recreated the glamour of a sophisticated night in Paris with her ultra sensuous and gorgeous jewellery. With diamonds as the basis of her collection, Divya splashed the designs with the most amazing giant pearls, rubies and emeralds.
The stunning pieces included the rigid heart shaped necklace with a matching kada, the long triangular emerald necklace, the imposing neckpiece which glided down the neck and the moulded gold diamond piece.
Adding to the French story were the lacy tubular earrings, the wide hoops ornate with diamonds, the giant tear drop earrings and the artistic geometric entry which circled around the model’s neck. The triple collar choker with emeralds was another breathtaking entry along with the multi triangle version.
Walking down the ramp to end the show was the latest hot Bollywood favourite, Zarine Khan in a black gown decked in a giant lacy choker, earrings, rings and bracelet all topped with show stopping rubies.
