Today’s trend is like a throwback to the days of the maharajas, when people were decked in ornaments from top to toe to represent family power, class and money. Now jewellery designers are taking inspiration from this to create fine pieces of ornaments.
BlueStone.com, a leading fine jewellery e-tailer, has introduced a royal touch to their extensive collection with ‘Jashn-e-Jodhpur’.
Designers and master craftsmen of BlueStone.com have taken inspiration from the rich indigo tones that form an integral part of the heritage of Jodhpur. The resulting collection encompasses pieces that are timeless and elegant.
The indigo porticos, intricate jaalis, delicate trellis and paisley patterns has come alive in a vibrant collection of earrings, neckpieces and rings, that perfectly translate the shades and forms that the ‘Blue City’ is famous for. The collection has transformed 1,000-year-old majestic traditions; while the slender floral and leaf motifs incorporated in the pieces capture the radiance of nature at its finest.
Speaking to News Today, Raminder Singh, the principal jewellery designer at BlueStone. com, said, “Indian jewellery has drawn inspiration from various monuments, cities, traditions and forms of nature. Keeping this as the core of our design aesthetic, we wanted to create an exquisite sapphire and diamonds collection with the city of Jodhpur as our inspiration. The Jashn-e-Jodhpur collection draws its essence from the beauty and traditions of the city, such as the hand-painted pottery, block-printing and bandhini work unique to the region. With fine details and elegant motifs, this collection is sure to be a timeless treasure.”
Some of the unique pieces from the collection include:
Vanajakshi necklace: A dazzling trellis of marquise cut blue sapphires along with diamonds, set in white gold transforms the earthy allure of enamel work into an avant garde interpretation that evokes sophisticated opulence.
Mandakini drop earrings: Mandakini drop earrings incorporate blue sapphires and diamonds, set in a pattern that is evocative of the hand painted wall art of Jodhpur’s royal palaces.
Yuvarani ring: It is the statement piece that evokes the grandeur of a bygone era. A stunning cabochon cut oval sapphire in a bezel setting it’s atop a dazzling array of diamonds, smaller sapphires and pearls set in white gold vertical arcs that recreate the form of a crown.
