The Amrapali show at the India International Jewellery Week was stunning! I was there with one of our lovely brides, Neha, who has had Amrapali at the top of her wishlist for her wedding! Needless to say, she left with lots of ideas and additions to her wedding list!!
The ‘Best of Amrapali’ show started off with a collection of tribal and ethnic silver jewellery and then moved on to traditional gold pieces with polka, jadau and Mughal kundan work. The collection was in line with their rustic meets chic USP.
What really enhanced the jewellery and what I fell in love with was Masaba’s Gupta’s clothes. She did a fabulous job with putting together traditional yet bohemian ensembles in black, white and gold. And of course, the show stopper Kangana Ranaut in red and uncut diamonds!
But what really worked for me, was Sonam Kapoor who looked ethereal in Amrapali at the inauguration of the IIJW 2011. She wore an elaborate statement shoulder pearl piece as a sash and a beautiful pearl and diamond necklace. Along with this, she wore traditional bangdis paires with a gold fusion cuff on one hand and on the other, a bracelet with dangling pearls. This was accompanied with stunning diamond jadau earrings.
