After fine clothing, acclaimed designer Manish Malhotra has forayed into fine jewellery.
Collaborating with Forevermark Diamonds, the designer unveiled his first jewellery piece — a pair of diamond chandelier earrings — at a soiree held in Delhi recently.
Put together with the help of Anmol Jewellers, the inspiration behind the earrings, says the designer, was the “opulence of the well-traveled aristocracy of the 1930s and 1940s”. Crafted with tear drop diamonds, the earrings exude an old-world charm with a distinct traditional Indian look. “As an Indian designer it’s my prerogative to explore our culture and heritage and my promise is to promote the rich traditions of art and design in our country,” said Malhotra.
