These Indian Contemporary Jewellery Brands Are Dazzling Us Right Nowby | February 14, 2019
The best part about jewellery, after of course all the gold, glory, and the dazzle of diamonds, is that it fits. Whether it is for gifting or a gala, one can never go wrong with jewellery. If you are finding ways to more than just accessorise, here is a list of homegrown brands that every woman, who is on the lookout for jewellery for wedding season or for no apparent reason, should know about.
Misho has been making quite a name on the international scene. On Instagram, Kendall Jenner showed off three different pairs of earrings by Misho in a week! Clean lines, simplified geometric patterns, Misho's designs are architectural and contemporary. Under the creative direction of Suhani Parekh, each piece is sculpted as if it was made for you.
Their range of mismatched hoops from the Configure Collection are head-turners, as are their Zodiac pendants from the Signatures Collection. The Flow combination rings from the Cascade Collection will make for perfect daily staples.
Amrapali is named after the royal courtesan from 500 BC known for her extraordinary beauty and timeless charm, something that their designs demonstrate very well. It's no surprise then that the label often creates collections for blockbuster films, from the Brad Pitt-starrer Troy in 2004 to the two-part South blockbuster Baahubali in 2015, and now Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika, among others.
Their relatively newer label Tribe by Amrapali has become the go-to line for fine tribal jewellery. And these handcrafted pearl and flower hoop earrings in gold plated silver stand by it. Inspired by mythical and abstract art motifs, with a dash of colour here and a sparkle of silver there, the enamel bird ear cuffs from the Nav Chandrika Collection could be worn to a party in Delhi as well as to a wedding.
Outhouse has some serious celebrity following, right from Kareena Kapoor Khan to Kim Kardashian. Started by sister duo Kaabia and Sasha Grewal in 2012, Outhouse combines sophistication with drama really well. Millennial brides love them for their cool and customised bachelorette party and wedding favours.
Their latest collection, The Wildflower, exudes a modern bohemian vibe with fresh hues and a light-hearted vibe. You can find earrings, necklaces, hand harnesses, head accessories and a lot more in popping colours and pretty tassels.
Mrinalini Chandra's jewellery is inspired by Mughal and Rajasthani design and poetry. She's also known for creating beautiful bridal kaleeras, and you would have seen examples of these in Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's and Priyanka Chopra Jonas' wedding pictures.
Featured below is the beautiful parrot motif necklace with light blue and turquoise meena work from the Phiroza Collection.
If you want to see a fusion of Rajasthani and Italian design, Dhora’s jewellery is a good example. Founded by Aavriti R Jain, the brand's aesthetic is a breath of fresh air, bringing classic and contemporary together in one frame.
Their charm necklaces, one of a kind rings, and delicate bracelets are minimal and modish with enticing Indian karigari.
Purab Paschim creates handcrafted jewellery that screams ‘extra’. Maximalists are drawn by their bold Indian aesthetics. Made on pure silver and embellished with original Swarovski crystals and pearls, their pieces are every modern bride’s go-to for making a statement.
Their latest collection called The Marrakesh, named after the Moroccan city is an eccentric take on bohemian jewellery. With different pastels as a base, coloured stones, and intricate work, the pieces look as if they were taken straight from the walls of a Moroccan palace.
